What is Cottagecore?

Cottagecore represents a back to basics simplicity with a wistful romantic look at rustic country.

So, I’ve been hearing a lot about cottagecore, so I thought we could explore this new terminology for cottage aesthetic here today!  Have you heard it yourself lately?

From Architectural Digest (Source),“As a concept, it embraces a simpler, sustainable existence that is more harmonious with nature. Aesthetically, it’s a nod to the traditional English countryside style, romantic and nostalgic,” says Davina Ogilvie, founder of Wovn Home.  

Cottagecore at its essence is coziness at home, gardening, homemade bread, and a lived in look for your home. I’m sure we can all agree that more time spent at home during the pandemic definitely influenced the way we use and view our home and style. Cottagecore inspires a whimsical and less complicated view of life. As a culture, we’ve turned to the past to soothe what is happening in the world today.
