Cottagecore is a new interior and lifestyle trend that is characterised by reverting back to traditional values and simpler times. With cottage in the title, the trends aesthetic is very similar to country-style interiors with a contemporary edge in mind.
How to incorporate it into your home
There are certain characteristics that are instantly recognisable with the cottagecore trend. For example, natural materials including wood and plants which merge your interiors with the outside world is a design tip that will work really well in any space.
Traditionally, cottage-style interiors have a very muted or neutral colour palette – this still stands with cottagecore but as it's brought into a more contemporary setting you can experiment with colour a bit more to suit your own personal style.
