If witch in the woods is more your vibe Etsy artist Kaladyn Designs has all the mats for you. She’s got a great mix of light and dark botanics, as well as some ethereal moon and celestial designs. Perfect to unleash that dark and moody floral aesthetic. May I suggest you play Strange Horticulture – an occult game about plants to match your new mat.

Classic Japanese art is forever timeless and highly striking. If you’re looking to build your setup as an homage to the East then some of these minimalistic designs might be for you. Complete your desktop setup with a cute bonsai tree and maybe a little figurine or two and escape to Japan.

 

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

The number of girl gamers has increased over the years and with that, we’re getting more and more aesthetic gear themed for those with a more discerning eye. Gone are the days of pure black masculinity gaming wear, we now have a lot of options that embrace a feminine touch. I love that these desktop mats are pink and feminine but not overly so.

 

Boho Chic

Bohemian chic was all the rage at one point but true gypsies at heart know that it never really leaves. When you think of the boho chic lifestyle you imagine the sand between your toes, terracotta and sandstone walls, the sun and flowing fabrics. Live your true sun goddess lifestyle with this earth-toned aesthetic.

 

Botanicals

There’s nothing more calm and inviting than a plant-focused desktop setup. I’ve seen some great ones full of fresh plants adorning the walls of the room, as well as a number on the desk itself. I’ve even seen trailing vines on a monitor! I think we can all agree that plants as a vibe are here to stay.

Love plants but also all things soft and cute? Then this may be the aesthetic for you! I love the little hidden animals amongst all the plants. Having these little friends just looking at you all day brings such joy.

 

The Lofi Aesthetic

It’s hard to describe a lo-fi aesthetic, it’s all about relaxation, nostalgia and finding a sense of calm in the everyday, imperfection of life. Think of muted soft colours, worn book covers, and minimalist illustrations. It’s a grainy, nostalgic world that evokes feelings of relaxation and peace, perfect for unwinding after a long day. This is personally my favourite music genre.

 

Pastel Skies

There’s nothing more dreamy than a sky of pastels. They invoke watercolour days at sunset or sunrise. Imagine an all-white gaming setup with a swathe of pastel sky. Exactly the tranquil gaming setup above the clouds that we’re all envisioning.

 

Cats. But Make It Minimalist

A desktop aesthetic that’s focused on cats! Cat lovers and pretty much everyone on the internet is in agreement, cats rule. Whether they’re in your games or out of it, we can’t get enough of their soft fuzzy faces. So in tribute, here are some adorable cat mats.
