Trend Spot: Cottagecore

Cottagecore embraces simplicity and focuses on bringing a sense of nature indoors

This week, we’re having a closer look at the cottagecore interior design style.

What is cottagecore?

Cottagecore embraces simplicity and focuses on bringing a sense of nature indoors. It also draws inspiration from a traditional, country-style way of living. Home-baked bread, floral patterns and wooden furniture perfectly sums up the cottagecore style. It is popular for its take on slow-living. In this way, cottagecore prioritises finding joy within the home rather than external events.

How to get the look

This is all very well, but how does the cottagecore trend translate into an accessible interior design look? It is actually surprisingly easy to get the cottagecore look. It’s up to you how much of the look you want to incorporate into your home. You can go for just accents of the look with floral patterns, candles or flowers presented in a jam jar. It can be fun, however, to get fully into the look and for something bolder.

Laminate and vinyl cottagecore floors

 Laminate and vinyl floors are a perfect option to integrate the cottagecore look into your home. Opting for an imitation wood floor in laminate or vinyl looks great in any home. This is much cheaper than choosing a real wooden floor. It is also much easier to maintain. Vinyl floors can be easily wiped clean. You also don’t have to worry about splinters or chipping with vinyl floors.

Patterned vinyl floors can also work really well within the cottagecore style. Why not try a Victorian tile style in your kitchen or bathroom?

Bringing it all together

It is so important that you tie all of these elements together when creating a cottagecore-style room. Neutral walls pair well with the look. Imitation wood floors bring that sense of nature that is crucial with this style. Patterned tablecloths, throws and pillows are an essential part of the overall look. This means that you will want to choose a subtle wall colour like cream, grey or pale green. Add fun accents like jars of flowers or wall hangings. It’s a nice touch to get second-hand or reclaimed furniture. This goes with the ‘slow-living’ element of the trend.

As winter draws near, you may not be able to see nature in full bloom. Instead, why not bring nature into your home? Decorate with real (or fake) plants to make the room feel greener and brighter.
