The ebb and flow of style trends has gotten so much easier to manage, now that things like the Explore page on Instagram and Target hauls on TikTok exist. It's social media we have to thank for coming up with cottagecore, an aesthetic that's blossomed in this era of quarantine.
Cottagecore is basically the idea of living the simple life. Full of rustic, nostalgic and traditional elements, living the cottagecore life would have you sipping tea from a porch rocking chair in the mornings, picking and drying flowers every afternoon and sidling up to a fireplace with a piece of knitting or embroidery in your lap to end the day.
The cottagecore lifestyle really only exists in small bursts on the internet, but what if you really wanted to personify it? The first step is surrounding yourself in some of the artistry that cottagecore is founded in.
Here are a dozen or so pieces of home decor you can pop into your home to create your own personal cottagecore haven.
