Expression through art. This is a concept as old as humanity. During the lockdowns people started to assess their home decor with a more keen eye. Spending so many more hours each day inside, they wanted their homes or at least a room, to be an expression of nature and the outside world. It wasn’t just home offices being designed for utility, but more personable concepts like man caves and mush-rooms. A mush-room, filled with mushroom decor, was a way to escape the feeling of solitude and being trapped.
It was often lumped into more general categories like weirdcore or weirdcore design. Mushroom decor has a wide range of looks and colors so it’s easy to cater it to your specific likes and needs. Not to mention the outdoorsy feel of the mushroom decor allows for those who felt disconnected with the outside world to build an indoor substitute that truly gave a more nature-esque vibe.
It should be noted mushroom decor is not just limited to real mushrooms. In fact, most of it can be found in items like mushroom-shaped vases, lamps, sculptures, and even wallpaper. You can also buy or make your own mushroom-inspired art.

You can find pre-grown mushroom kits online or at your local garden center, then simply place them in a shady spot in your home and watch them grow!
Surprisingly, mushrooms can also have a positive effect on other plants. Studies have shown that exposure to mushroom mycelium also intertwines roots of other plants to form a healthier symbiotic ecosystem.
