If you’re a fan of the cottagecore home-style trend and want to try it yourself, there are many ways you can begin. While it might seem complicated, there are some simple decor changes you can make to your space to bring out the cottagecore aesthetic. Here are some ideas for how to use cottagecore style in your own home:
Cottagecore is all about comfort. This means you can easily add some of this style to your bedroom by simply adding more bedding. Fluffy blankets and plush duvets are perfect, especially when layered. Make your bed look inviting and cozy with a few throw pillows and an extra blanket draped over the corner.
If you don’t have the architecture for it, you can still create a cottagecore reading nook in your home. All you need is a corner or area to place a comfy vintage style chair, a small table and a bookshelf. Finish it off with a funky lamp and a throw blanket to stay warm while reading on chilly nights.
Flowers and plants are a key element of cottagecore design style. Display fresh flowers when possible, or opt for dried flowers for a rustic, earthy feel. Houseplants are perfect for cottagecore as well. The more lively greenery and natural elements you can bring indoors, the better.
While color choices vary, cottagecore usually sticks with neutral, earthy tones. Browns, greens, beige and white are all great together. Add in some pastels or a pop of your favorite vibrant color for some personal flair and to add depth. Avoid making things look too busy by coordinating patterns and textures in the same color or tone.
Cottagecore puts a big emphasis on the kitchen, so it’s a great place to add some style elements. Floral prints on china, mismatched dishes, copper cookware and Mason jars full of ingredients are perfect cottagecore. Add some whimsical details like an apron hanging on the wall or dish towels in your favorite colors.
These are only a few ways to bring cottagecore style into your home. Keep these ideas in mind and you’ll create a version of the style all your own.
