If you’ve been on the internet recently, you may have seen the term “cottagecore” appear. Cottagecore is an aesthetic that has recently become repopularized by Gen Z. The term was first brought on the scene in the 2010s and officially named 2018. The cottagecore aesthetic is a movement harkening back to a time when people lived simpler, rural, and rustic lives to create a feeling of “aspirational nostalgia.”
The aesthetic centers on traditional rural clothing, interior design, and crafts such as drawing, baking, and pottery. It’s no wonder this aesthetic reached its height during the pandemic when we were all at home trying to keep sourdough starters alive! If this ode to the simple life attracts you, this is how you can bring the cottagecore aesthetic into your home.
Cottagecore is all about appreciation for the beauty that nature has to offer. Try adding in some wooden accents around your house like our Bluff Oval Nightstand in Walnut for a down-to-earth feel in your bedroom. And, every dream cottagecore kitchen needs a sturdy set of wooden spoons. Our Serving Spoon Sethas been hand-cut and carved by local craftspeople, and you can’t get more cottagecore than that!
Plenty of Plants
Many key aspects of cottagecore stem from the image of a quaint countryside home. While you may not live in the middle of a grassy field, one easy way to bring a little nature into your home, no matter where you live, is with plants.
If the thought of keeping a plant alive is too daunting, a vase of dried flowers will bring similar natural elements into your home without having to remember to water them.
