The gray, dreary days of winter are officially over. Our gardens are bursting with spring greenery, sunglasses are back in our wardrobes, and the appetite for color in fashion and interiors continues to grow.  

In line with this, one of the year's major home trends is replacing the prevailing monotonous beige aesthetic. Instead of the clean look that dominated social media last year, bright colors that radiate pure joie de vivre are now being celebrated. Under the term "Dopamine Decor", numerous interiors can be seen on the usual platforms, bursting with energetic color combinations. Users proudly show off their colorful homes, making a conscious statement against the sometimes uniform beige world. 

Beige is often associated with calm, elegance and timelessness. It can create a soothing and understated atmosphere that can transform an environment into a cherished retreat. However, the exclusive use of neutral colors can make a room appear drab to characterless.  

The idea behind Dopamine Decor is to create spaces that stimulate the brain and elicit positive responses. Visual stimuli are used to influence the mood accordingly. The happiness hormone dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in the brain in regulating motivation, pleasure and reward. Its release helps to enhance positive emotions and increase feelings of satisfaction.

This can be achieved by using certain colors, materials, patterns and textures to create an atmosphere of joy, comfort and inspiration. However, instead of painting all four walls in bright colors, a few eye-catching pieces on the coffee table are enough to create a more colorful living landscape. The advantage here is that the coffee table books can be selected not only by favorite color, but also by thematic interest. 

Floramour Peonies, Wildflowers and Tulips 

Flowers are the ultimate sign of spring. After months of barren landscapes, nature awakens in a colorful spectacle. From the first delicate buds in the garden to the vibrant splashes of color in our vases, spring brings not only nature into bloom, but our senses as well. Featuring an eye-catching cover design, the new titles in the popular Floramour series offer a burst of color similar to a fresh bouquet, but are a more long-term investment than the short-lived cut flowers of the season.

Porsche Vibes 

This coffee-table book perfectly captures the feeling of that first drive in a convertible, with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. With a vibrant color combination of bright yellow on the cover and bright pink on the spine, this coffee table eye-catcher really puts the pedal to the metal.

It's All About Series 

Before it became a trend in interior design, it was known as the "dopamine dressing" in fashion. After the pandemic, the need for a mood booster was great, and bright colors, dazzling materials and extravagant combinations took over the catwalks. Each title in the It's All About series is dedicated to a fashion phenomenon guaranteed to lift even the worst Monday mood. Metallics and accessories are the latest additions to the colorful series.

Greco Disco 

This coffee-table book is a statement piece par excellence. Young art and design talent Luke Edward Hall is a true all-rounder, whether in interiors, fabrics, ceramics, stationery, prints, drawings or paintings. In his first monograph, he showcases his extravagant, eclectic style, characterized by vibrant colors. Here, fine English tradition meets classical antiquity, and playful elements such as sailor stripes and martini glasses join dreamy portraits and column motifs based on Greek models.

Home Inspiration Series

From wild patterns in "Patterns" to creative color combinations in "Colors" to a pop of color in trendy "Boho Style," every design enthusiast will find a treasure trove of inspiration.
