Making, baking, taking the scenic route. We’ve all embraced a slower pace of life recently, looking to our homes to bring us cosiness and domestic bliss – featuring florals, nostalgia and the good kind of clutter. Countryside vibes, wherever you live – that’s cottagecore. Interested? Read on for our fan favourites.
Sage green accents paired with vintage pieces and plenty of autumnal trinkets (we’re loving those tiny pumpkins) create a calm, welcoming space made for concentration. The view could be anywhere, but @hellyeahruna’s on an escape to the country.
Books, bits and bobs, a freshly brewed tea – @weareherenow knows how to do inviting corners. The main event? That armchair. Just grab your slippers and sink in. We’ll pop another log on the fire.
Muted jewel tones and neutral textiles. Early nights and lazy mornings. @janeshomejournal’s space reminds us of a boutique hotel. We’re not mad at that unmade bed, either – we’d forgive anyone for diving back in.
Minimalism? No thanks. Note @donebymyselfblog’s florals – they all sit within the same colour palette, which stops the room from feeling too busy. Crisp white accents dilute the look and keep it fresh.
If you’re not cosy, you’re not doing it right. @instantsdedouceur_ goes back to basics with earthy tones, natural wood and plenty of texture. This is cottagecore, made contemporary.
Slow living = time for waffles and coffee. Is there anything better? Ceramic dinnerware sets this scene, alongside rattan placemats, candles and an über-autumnal dried flower bouquet. Pass the maple syrup, please.
