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.
