From grow-your-own herb gardens and baking to embroidery and crafts, the activities we embraced over the past 12 months had their roots in simpler, more self-sufficient times. And with reports of people leaving towns and cities for rural areas, it appears that an escape to the country has become the modern fantasy. In interiors, this trending Insta hashtag (which has over a million posts) has manifested itself in cosy spaces and traditional decor.
What is Cottagecore?
Focusing on comfort and nostalgia, cottagecore encourages people to live a simple and self-sufficient life. But how do you inject this into your home? Think romantic frills, cute gingham, pretty florals and vintage inspired designs. It’s all about creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Transform your bathroom into a place to enjoy a little me-time. You don’t have to give the room a complete makeover, just introduce natural elements, floral prints and eco-friendly products.
Create a cosy retreat by adding classic floral prints or chinoiserie-inspired designs. Switching up your bedding, cushions and throws will help create a relaxing space with a nod to the cottage style.
From storage baskets to soft furnishings, bring that cottage feel to any space with a few simple updates. When it comes to throws and blankets, choose them in muted plaids, warm tones, and fringed designs. Bring in natural elements such as dried and fresh flowers for a decorative touch.
Invest in updating all the essentials needed to make your own delicious recipes. From new pots and pans to baking must-haves, get inspired to create your own feasts from scratch. Think wooden designs, floral prints, and animal motifs.
