Living in lockdown has certainly become one of the biggest unforeseen catalysts of change in 2020. While some still prefer to be in physical spaces like erm—those who host mañanitas, most people have enjoyed their newfound love in being a homebody.
Sure there are the plantitos and plantitas, but the cult of Marie Kondo is slowly taking over quarantine with DIY home decor and everyone re-furbishing their nests. As staying at home has an entirely different meaning nowadays, here are eight of the stand out shops that we’ve seen on Instagram to quirk up your little lair.
THE MIDNIGHT CATALOGUE
The Midnight Catalogue’s playful pieces remind us of being in Shoreditch, a city in East London known for its streets emblazoned with graffiti. The decors are mostly 1 of 1 as they’re sourced from all over the world, so you better get yourself one ASAP.
Celebrate womanhood with Karma Atelier’s decorative pieces. They have everything from body lamps, lip dishes, and cheeky vases. Timeless ornaments that echo the female anatomy.
ROTTEN MERMAID STUDIO
Two words: pastel perfection. Relive your Polly Pocket dreams with Rotten Mermaid’s squiggle mugs, clam pillows, Rubik’s cube-esque candles and even an egg for a rug.
WABI SABI PH
Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Wabi Sabi. Their handmade ceramics are mostly tongue-in-cheek and adds a little humor to the beauty of imperfections and random objects like their octopus bowls and boob mugs to name a few. A daily reminder not to take yourself too seriously.
RUSTIC FINDS PH
Almost everyone on the ‘Gram has been decorating their mirrors with this gooey cloud-like foam. But who would’ve thought they’d look good as tables too? Did we mention they also sell minimalist chairs and framed posters?
THE FREE FORM
If you’re a fan of the 1960s art scene, then The Free Form’s retro vases and iridescent catchalls are what you need. Almost all of their offerings are as good as center pieces already. Brb, adding everything vintage to cart.
All things Terrazzo is our current obsession and Honeymoon House Co’s newest candles are the only thing missing from our bed side table. Their crowd favorites are the boob bath mat, knotted mugs and odd-shaped vases.
Last but not the least is Poppy Home. You may know them for their cute bags, but they can accentuate your spaces too. Definitely buying their LED floor lamp, flower wall clock and iridescent table.
