If there’s one thing we collectively learned from Marie Kondo, it’s to only keep things that spark joy in your home. We’ll go so far to say that even includes your window coverings! But we’re not talking about tidying, we’re talking about a more recent trend: dopamine design.
Dopamine design is a spinoff of dopamine dressing, which is about wearing clothes that make you happy, aka release dopamine. While color is often associated with it, the trend at its core is about your personal style and what makes you happy. Check out a few of our window covering recommendations, from colorful to neutral!
Bright & Vibrant
Bold, daring, striking – all words people use to describe you and your style. You want guests to feel energized when they visit, so you lean toward maximalism and want your window coverings to match. Colors often associated with happiness are bright blues, yellows, oranges, pinks and even reds.
Soft & Calming
You enjoy color but don’t want it to overpower a room. We suggest incorporating pastels. These light hues invoke comforting feelings and can make a room feel brighter. Plus, they compliment existing bold or deep colors in the home versus competing with them.

Neutral doesn’t have to mean boring. Sometimes a classic, seamless look is just what you need after a long day. Or maybe you have a colorful room already and you’re looking to add some contrast!
The Nomad Woven Wood Shades have several color options, from a light grey to more natural wood colors. For this room, the neutral color is a nice way to balance out the bright glam jungle wallpaper and teal accessories.
