Dopamine-Inducing Colouful Interiors

Love dopamine dressing? Check out our edit of the best Instagram accounts to follow for joyful, colourful interior design, sure to bring some feel good fun to your home.

From a modest house that’s taken on lifesize Barbie energy to one of NYC’s hottest interior designers showcasing maximalist style, and the vintage furniture experts delving deep into the Internet’s most joy-inducing home and design content, these are the feeds to follow for some seriously colourful interiors inspo.


Colour consultant Jess and her husband Rick take you through a virtual home tour via their little squares and it’s a feast for the eyes if you’re a sucker for sugar almond hued pastels.

From their pretty pink living room peppered with hints of turquoise (just look at that log fire!) and mustardy yellows, to their lemon-print wallpaper that nods to sunnier climes, you can’t help but feel uplifted and inspired to get the paint brush out whilst scrolling their feed.

Proving that you don’t need to use saccharine shades to create a dopamine living space, Tom Bax AKA The Mellow Maximalist has become a wealth of interiors inspiration for cleaver uses of colour and print.

His converted Victorian workhouse refurb benefits from stunning original features such as lofty ceiling heights and floodlit arched windows. His use of contrasting paint colours covering the inner arches of his home and ceilings is a masterclass in how to use bold paint subtly. And if you’re in the market for some quick win home updates without the commitment, check out his use of contrasting print bed linens and kooky coloured gallery walls.
