“Cottagecore” Interior Design Aesthetic: Live In A Whimsical Land Of Wonder

Cottagecore aesthetic is about simpler and happier times when we lived closer to nature. It is about waking up with the sun and tending to livestock, plucking ripe fruit right from the trees, and dipping feet in fresh streams of water in the summer. It is about authentic living with genuine love towards Mother Nature. Cottagecore interior design is a beautiful blend of wild, rustic, vintage, and whimsical design and decorative elements. This aesthetic was around for years but came into prominence with Taylor Swift’s surprise album “folklore” in 2020, which promoted a fairy-tale Cottagecore vibe.

Here are some tips to turn your home into a magical cottage in the midst of the forest, filled with lots of beautifully mystical and natural elements.

 

1. A Breath of Fresh Air

Cottagecore style does not restrict the natural breeze that flows into a home. It has light blinds and large open windows that let in wind and sunshine. If you are not a minimalist and like your pretty trinkets, this is a great design style to follow, since it encourages being surrounded by things you love. Use the natural light to beautifully display your crafts and other beautiful belongings. While the living room is bright and open, the bedrooms in this design style are cozy and dimly lit. If you do not have enough natural light to create a Cottagecore aesthetic you can always use artificial light, but try to work around your natural light as much as possible.

 

2. Flowers and Plants

Flowers and plants are perhaps the earliest decorative items in our homes, even back in the days when we used to live in the caves! From those days to the modern age now, flowers and the beautiful greenery of plants have an inherent power to bring us joy. Cottagecore aesthetic encourages everything flowers and floral. As a rather soothing and feminine aesthetic, it is good to stick to classic floral patterns and pastel colours in your soft furnishings and use indoor plants especially in places where the sun enters. This aesthetic is a romanticized version of agricultural life. Therefore, try to use as many fresh and real flowers and plants as decorative items as much as possible.

 

3. Rustic and Vintage Elements

Cottagecore aesthetic calls for furniture that have been around for a while, making memories and collecting stories. It does not include luxury or expensive furniture unless it has been something that is gifted to you or handed down in the family. You can hunt in antique shops, second-hand furniture shops, or thrift stores for your perfect piece of furniture or decorative element for your lovely Cottagecore home. There are also many online stores that sell exactly the kind of household items and furniture targeting this aesthetic. Another great way to make a piece of furniture match this aesthetic is to make it your own.

 

4. Forest Green Everything

The ideal Cottagecore residence is an actual wooden or clay cottage located near the forest and a flowing stream. Since we cannot practically achieve that in our urban apartments, that vibe is created by using beautiful shades of greens. Forest green is a deep olive green that is a flattering base for pinks, purples, and blush colours common in flowers and floral designs. You can use an off-white as a base and use different shades of colours including fern, emerald, sage, juniper, pine, and moss colours to create a pleasant variety and depth. When you select fabrics for upholstery, opt for deep greens in natural fabrics such as linen and cotton to stay closer to nature.

 

5. Whispering Wood

Wood has an inherent ability to make us feel at peace. They cool down the interiors and bring a sense of life and joy to any space. If there is one material that feels the closest to nature it is wood. In the authentic Cottagecore aesthetic, the house is entirely made of wood. You can achieve a similar vibe by using wallpapers and other furnishings with wood patterns. It is, however, ideal to get actual wooden items since they are natural, sustainable, and renewable materials. Contrary to popular belief, using wood leaves a lighter carbon footprint than using concrete or steel. You can go for wooden ceilings, flooring, furniture, decorative elements, and more.
