Even though cozy hygge season is coming to an end (despite chilly April temps not seeming to agree), the popular consensus is that staying in is the new going out. That vested interest emphasizes indoor free-time activities and social gatherings (or at least ones you can do in your private outdoor space). Whether you subscribe to Marie Kondo's minimalist preferences or Wabi Sabi's homier approach to decor, those trends seem to have something in common: People want to fill their spaces with joy. Perhaps that is why Etsy now has more than 26,000 search results for “face home decor," and searches for "faces" are up 38 percent since last year, according to the site's new Spring Home Decor Trend Guide. Yes, people are literally filling their homes with faces on decor items—and, considering this means you'll never really be alone in your Zen den, the smiling, trendy items are pretty genius.
“As we continue to move away from minimalism and as people are spending more time at home, we’re seeing an uptick in face-inspired decor as a way to add more playful pieces that add joy to home design," Etsy's trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson tells me.
And it makes sense; smiling can make your flu shots more effective and workouts more powerful, so why wouldn't filling your home with happy faces contribute to a happier home? Here's are some particularly fun face-decor items available on Etsy now.
