I don’t know about you, but these dreary winter days are making me want to brighten up my apartment, like, now. Neon colored candles, cheerful vases, whimsical lampshades, and so much more? Bring it all on!

I’m constantly discovering new brands with smile-inducing home decor offerings, and the below retailers are majorly succeeding when it comes to offering vibrant, maximalist style furnishings and decorative accessories. If these shops aren’t on your radar yet, I have no doubt something here will soon become one of your go-to favorites — that is, if you like bold and bright, more-is-more decor.

SZ Blockprints

Perhaps you’ve spotted a fashionable friend wearing one of SZ Blockprints‘ flowy, colorful tops or dresses, but did you know that the brand offers home goods, too? Their tablecloths and napkin sets have me wanting to up my hosting game ASAP. Those in need of a fab reusable tote won’t be able to resist this checkered option, which is perfect for hauling everything from library books to farmers’ market goodies.

Buy: Small Tote in Faded Rose Double Check Print, $98.00 from SZ Blockprints

Yes Babe Studio

I always love going down a good, hour-long Etsy rabbit hole and discovering new shops full of brightness and cheer. If you’re in the market for bold wall art with a little edge, Yes Babe Studio is the retailer for you. After all, you swore you were finally going to get started on your gallery wall this winter, right? I’m thinking a witty poster or two (maybe this fun feminist print?) is the perfect addition.

Buy: Queen Elizabeth I Poster, Starting at $17.99 from Etsy

Neos Candle Studio

Love bust sculptures? Love candles? Well, Neos Candle Studio is going to be your dream destination. I didn’t know I needed a hot pink Michelangelo-inspired David bust shaped candle in my life, but now that I’ve seen it online, there’s no turning back. Those who aren’t as into Renaissance-inspired decor but are looking for a sassy addition to their bookshelves will fall for this lip-shaped candle duo. Trust me: There’s something for every brand of candle lover or maximalist out there.

Buy: David Candle, $60.00 from Neos Candle Studio

Sage and Sill

I love a good one-stop plant shop, and once you’re done stocking up on green friends from Sage and Sill, you won’t want to miss out on their colorful selection of home accessories. I’m eyeing this retro radio-inspired tissue box, funky floral cushion, and LED rainbow light, to name a few things.

Object-Matter Ceramic

O-M Ceramic is another one-stop online shop where you can buy vases, textiles, wall art and so much more. This oversized blanket looks perfect for both at-home movie nights and park hangs, and this vase would make an equally adorable makeup brush holder. What did I add to my cart almost immediately, though? This whimsical art print that’s full of pep. Items are artisanal-sourced and curated, so expect prices to reflect that.

Buy: Fun Little Things Print, Starting at $85.00 from Object-Matter Ceramic

The Tiny Tassel

The Tiny Tassel is home to sparkly, glittery, and whimsical pieces of jewelry, but the retailer also boasts an excellent selection of home items, too. I’m all about their ombré taper candles, small floral trinket tray, and selection of cute vases that will jazz up any coffee table.

Buy: Small Trinket Tray – Wildflowers, $15.00 from The Tiny Tassel

If you love all things vibrant but your style leans a little more traditional grandmillennial over mid-century, Pooky is the place for you. Recreate the English-inspired interiors of your dreams with one of their printed cotton lampshades, or opt for a delightful marbled paper style, among other options. Prices are in pounds (I’ve done the conversion for you below), but the site ships internationally.

Buy: Empire Lampshade, Starts at $39.41 from Pooky
