Is it just me, or is everyone shopping for bubble home decor?

Aka "bubblecore"

Bubble home decor is blowing up, and as someone with a minimalist, Scandi-style home, this is finally a trend I can get on board with. Also known as bubblecore, it brings organic shapes into your interiors, whether through a candle holder, fancy lighting, or that cloud-shaped mug you've probably scrolled past 100 times on TikTok.

Confession: I really couldn't get behind Barbiecore or Cottagecore. I appreciated both trends, but as a true neutral decor lover, they just weren't me. Bubblecore is an amalgamation of all things asymmetrical, neutral, and calm, but a load more fun. Essentially, it's anything that takes a bubble-like shape. I'm talking glass and ceramic, materials but it's really not that limited. I've found plenty of bubblecore buys from my favorite stores to prove that you can incorporate this niche look into your space without hurting your wallet.

I'm not sure about you, but I think that this floaty, ethereal trend is here to stay.

Where did the bubblecore come from?

Thanks to British influencer Molly Mae (opens in new tab)'s recent dining room redesign, the term bubble home decor was searched 14,000 times in the last month by home interior lovers, far and wide. For her dining room, she bought a stunning statement light that's essentially a bunch of hanging white bubbles. It's mega attention-grabbing — and you can see it on her home Instagram account (opens in new tab).

As someone who lives in a flat with a small amount of storage space to work with, and with two indoor pets to clean up after, I am forever searching for stylish yet functional appliances that won't blemish my decor if I can't fit them in a cupboard. I love decorating my living room for each season, while my other hobbies include drinking a decent cup of coffee, going on park walks with my dog and enjoying an Instagrammable brunch with my husband.
