SHOP: Turn Your Desk Into A Sweet And Dreamy Escape With These 9.9 Finds
Feel cozy, comfortable and protected even as you slay your day away
Gen Z's aesthetic preferences keep changing and evolving as seen in TikTok and Instagram. We almost can't keep up. Undeniably, though, many have a preference for the SFW (Safe For Work) look, a characteristic of what trend experts call "softcore."
It's not what you think it is, though! When talking about trends or aesthetics, "softcore" is a look that originated from the Japenese kawaii which loosely translates to "cute." Think Hello Kitty, Snoopy, Drawing Mary and Sanrio. Simply put, decorating in this style makes one feel comfortable, cozy and protected. Also called "Pastel Academia," its stand-out elements are soft pastel colors, naive art work, rounded edges and muted or natural light.
One can't escape the sweetness of this look, making it appealing for stressed-out and overwhelmed workers who spend quite some time in their home office areas, dreaming of a retreat from the daily grind and the pandemic. Be inspired by these Pinterest examples:
