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'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.

Hi! I'm Annie, and I'm the Head Ecommerce Editor at Real Homes. I've been part of the Real Homes team since 2018, when I joined as Deals Editor. Along with covering major sales events — from Black Friday to Amazon Prime Day — I review home must-haves so that you can buy with peace of mind. Mostly focusing on home fragrance and sleep, as well as a few vacuum cleaners, I've tested pretty much every item you can think of that you need in your home. I live on the outskirts of the city in a two-bed apartment with my husband and my pug, Doug. So I am always searching for compact alternatives and ways to save floor space. What about when I am not typing away? Well, you'll find me enjoying an iced coffee (no matter the season) and trying out the latest brunch spots the city has to offer, or booking my next holiday.
