The Cottagecore Trend
I'm thrilled to see the rise of the cottagecore trend in home decor. This movement celebrates a return to a simpler way of living and embraces the beauty of rural life. With its emphasis on traditional skills and crafts, cottagecore is a perfect antidote to the fast-paced, technology-driven world we live in.
If you're looking to embrace this trend in your own home, here are ten ideas to get you started:
Use natural materials - embrace the beauty of wood, stone, and natural fibers such as linen and cotton in your furnishings and decor.
Incorporate vintage pieces - look for furniture and decor items with a vintage or antique feel to add a touch of nostalgia to your space.
Bring the outdoors in - use fresh flowers, potted plants, and other natural elements to create a calming, organic feel in your home.
Display handmade items - showcase items such as hand-thrown pottery, crocheted blankets, and knitted accessories to celebrate traditional crafting skills.
Use soft, muted colours - think dusty pinks, soft blues, and warm yellows to create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
Create a cozy reading nook - add a comfy chair or two, a warm throw, and a stack of books to create a cozy spot for relaxation.
Use vintage or rustic lighting - look for lanterns, oil lamps, and other vintage-inspired lighting to add a warm glow to your space.
Incorporate patterned textiles - look for floral prints, gingham, and other vintage-inspired patterns to add a touch of whimsy to your decor.
Display vintage kitchenware - use vintage enamelware, wooden spoons, and other traditional kitchen tools as decorative elements in your kitchen.
Embrace simplicity - keep your decor simple and uncluttered, focusing on a few key pieces that bring joy and comfort to your space.
By embracing the cottagecore trend in your home, you can create a peaceful, welcoming environment that celebrates the beauty of a simpler way of life.
