For our latest Cottagecore campaign we got in touch with local interior designer, Fiona Wilson, to give some of her expert industry knowledge into this interior design trend. Continue on reading this blog post to find her thoughts on how you can incorporate some Cottagecore elements to your home.
Spring time is now upon us. The daffodils and snowdrops are in full flourish and just being outside is so appealing. With this in mind we want our homes to reflect this feeling of harmony and wellbeing that this season brings.
“Cottagecore” or the cosy “little women” inspired interiors are the now. We want our homes to reflect this contentment and we can achieve this by bringing the outside in with the use of floral prints, earthy natural colours and introducing textures such as linens, velvets, faded quilts and soft lighting. Mixing up the vintage with the new can successfully bring the trend of cottagecore to the fore.
Lockdown has encouraged many of us to take up traditional, homely crafts such as knitting, breadmaking and woodcrafting, all these things that contribute to creating a nostalgic, warm and cosy cottagecore aesthetic as well as benefitting our mental wellbeing.
Imagine a room filled with tactile throws, mix up of cushions, ditsy prints and reclaimed furniture and to finish it off the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through the air. The feel good factor that comes from the items you choose to put in your home that have been pre-loved or indeed created by you can be really satisfying.
Take for example this piece of furniture from Scaramanga is great for putting as a display on a coffee table or deep window sill filled with terracotta pots planted up with miniature daffodils and crocuses.
What a great bookshelf in your lounge or indeed in your kitchen as storage for vintage china.
This cabinet would fit right into a cottagecore inspired space, use it as a small larder in your kitchen or utility or as a storage cabinet for books and games in your family snug.
Great little rustic dishes for your hallway, perfect for putting your keys, loose change in.
Showing of a collection works great in a country interior, collecting some carefully chosen pebbles or shells from a family beach walk would look great presented in this wall mounted display.
Whatever your interior taste, cottagecore has a place in any home.
Such great advice from an interior expert. Be sure to tag @scaramangauk in all your home designs. We would love to see your take on the Cottagecore trend.
