The New Aesthetic of CluttercoreMarie Kondo's minimalism may bring you joy, but for others, it sparked a backlash known as maximalism. Now there's an offshoot design trend that has been picking up steam with Generation Z, boosted by the pandemic and promulgated by TikTok and Instagram. It's called "cluttercore." While some may see it as "hoarding disorder meets OCD," fans of the look see it as surrounding yourself by the things that truly bring you joy. And when so many people spent so much time home alone these last two years, surrounding yourself with things that make you happy has been a valid coping method.

11 Homes That Use Color in Surprising WaysThere are those who will tell you to keep your walls a neutral color so that a potential buyer will not be turned off. Others say tone the color down because you'll get tired of it, or you won't be able to match accessories. Then there are people who think, "It's my home, I'll do as I please!" A creative person with some sense of style can go nuts with color and come up with an interior design that can't help but make you smile. The eleven interiors showcased in a list at Apartment Therapy aren't all this bright. Some are gentle pastels that you don't see every day, and others are unexpected combinations of pleasant colors that work. Seeing them will inspire you to do your own experiments with color, because you might just come up with a perfect room to be yourself in. (Image credit: Viv Yapp)#interior #color #homedecor

Finally! Official Pokemon Furniture Line for Grown Ups has Launched with Pikachu-Inspired Sofa and Poke Ball TableThe Pokemon Company has teamed up with Japanese furniture and interior furnishings company Karimoku to produce a line of furniture that looks sleek and minimalistic at times. These new pieces of furniture are inspired by the cute pocket monsters we all love and are familiar with, but not to the point that it either looks childish or too in your face.At first glance, the items in the collection look like abstract patterns, fooling people into thinking they are not inspired by the popular franchise. On a closer inspection, one can spot the Pokemon designs on the curtains, sheet, and floor mat.The collection features a Pikachu sofa, a two-seater sofa model with bright colors, and a Pikachu pattern. In addition to that, there is also a one-person easy chair, a Poke Ball side table, and a gigantic Snorlax rug that looks elegant enough to be placed in your main living room.The collection can be purchased through the Pokemon Center Online store starting October 14. Don’t worry, these can be placed within your very adult home without anyone complaining about its ‘childishness’ or campiness (then again it’s your home, so who cares if you want an over-the-top Pikachu sofa? You do you!).Image credit: via JapanToday#Pokemon #Furniture #HomeDecor #InteriorDesign #Karimoku #Pikachu #Sofa

One Step Ladder by Cameron RowleyIt’s a unique ladder and good home decor!Meet the One Step Ladder, the winner of The Conran Shop’s inaugural Designer of the Future Award. The One Step Ladder, designed by Cameron Rowley, was intended as a domestic tool and a display piece. The Kingston University graduate placed a heavy emphasis on the ladder’s function. While his work looks simple, Rowley created a unique and new spin on ladders and step ladders. The contraption is a combination of a step stool and ladder. According to Rowley, it is an item that could be used ‘only for a brief moment.’ In addition, the design occupies a smaller space in the house compared to its regular counterparts.Image credit: The Conran Shop #OneStepLadder #CameronRowley #DesignerOfTheFutureAward #HomeDecor #UniqueLadder #InteriorDesign #TheConranShop

A Beautiful Hanging Kimono-Shaped Chandelier This gorgeous kimono chandelier combines artistic form and function. This is a working light fixture that doubles as piece of art. Perhaps, however, it's best described as a piece of art that doubles as a chandelier.  Cherry blossom-like flowers and branches weave about the top of the kimono. A water element, with waves and fish, anchor the bottom. Carefully placed lights give the piece a dazzling glow. The beautiful Japanese kimono. It is said that the straight cuts of the kimono allow the garment to fit a variety of body shapes. Similarly, one could say that this gorgeous Kimono-inspired chandelier could easily compliment and celebrate variety of home decor styles.   Image: Canopy Designs#kimono #art #Japanese #homedecor #cherryblossom #koi #chandelier #lights #lightfixture

Bringing the Garden in With Trellis Decorated WallsDallas interior design firm Dunbar Road is responsible for the creation of this adorable and whimsical space. The room uses an abundance of trellis shaped molding and other trim work to give the room an airy conservatory feel. The color pallet is striking, but not shocking. The use of pale green, bright whites, yellows, and pops of pink remind someone of sitting in the garden.  Sometimes a great amount of molding in a room can make it feel stuffy. This room, however, feels airy and light. Perhaps that is due to the proliferation of bright whites and the moderate amount of furniture used. This is a bold and happy room. One could easily imagine sitting down at that table with friends. Perchance have few cups of tea, a smattering of pastries, and a good deal of belly laughs.  #trellis #gardenroom #diningspace #diningroom #homedecor #interiordesign #greenandwhite #gardentheme #whimsicalspaces

Some cabinet units were clearly destined to beautifully stick out.This gorgeous cabinet is painted a heavy blue / black color and contrasts wonderfully with the light grey floor and bright white trim. Leather style pulls, on the upper cabinets, add an elegant and natural element to the massive piece. Oversized handles on the main doors feel substantial yet warm. The arrow shaped cutouts on the doors add a uniqueness and draw your eye. This unit is proof that practical spaces can be handsomely created. Efficiency and functionality does not mean things have to fade into the background.

Capturing the Beauty of the Desert With the Tumbleweed Chandelier Artists in Austin, Texas are taking repurposing from the land to a whole new level. They are turning invasive, annoying, and sometimes dangerous tumbleweeds into gorgeous and functional works of art. Behold the tumbleweed chandelier. The tumbleweeds are collected wildly in the spring. They are next left to thoroughly dry. After they are sprayed with a varnish and a fire retardant. Finally, they are transformed with lights into unusual and one of a kind chandeliers. The end result is a wonderful and magical harnessing of the botanical beauty of the wild west. #tumbleweed #chandelier #Texas #Austin #botanical #lights #homedecor #unusuallights
