Interior Trends: Cottagecore Edit

“Romanticism, nostalgia, a vase of dried flowers… the new aesthetic taking the interior world by storm”

Creativity is thriving in the interior’s world, as many Brits are swapping city life for the countryside. So appealing are the sights of country living that a new aesthetic has slowly filtered its way into our social media feeds and monthly magazine subscriptions – Cottagecore. A movement of agricultural celebration where the traditional English countryside, romanticism, and contemporary living meet, Cottagecore is the new interior craze embellishing our homes. Think sough dough starters, new world tablespace designs and neutral, cosy colour palettes. 


This is a house where natural, decorative features live. The outdoors moves in, as clean, contemporary lines combine with oak herringbone flooring, rattan baskets and linen accessories. Like any interior movement, Cottagecore is ever evolving as the wistfulness of past times transcend the contemporary landscape of 2021. As we settle into our new normal post pandemic, our at-home lifestyles have notably changed and so too has our desire for the perfect dwelling. Mixing old with new brings life and memory into a Cottagecore home, whilst flora inspired finishing touches fashion a sense of pristine calm. 

Our Inspiration 


From outdoor dinner parties to playful interior design and floral arrangements, these accounts have taken Cottagecore to the next level with their picturesque landscapes.
