This interior design style takes its inspiration from English country cottages, combining pastel tones, Victorian furniture and plain fabrics with minimalist décor.
Taking its place as one of lockdown’s most popular trends, cottagecore is not just about interior design…it’s so much more. It's a lifestyle that takes a romantic view of English countryside traditions (hence the enthusiasm for restoring antique furniture, cooking homemade bread or sewing your own clothes) and champions pairing pastel colours, floral wallpaper and hardwood furniture with ultra-modern décor.

How to decorate a cottagecore kitchen
Natural decorations, chairs upholstered in neutral tones, dried flowers, plants, aged wooden tables and porcelain vases are some elements key to getting the cottagecore kitchen look.
To link these design ideas together you could opt for wood inspired ceramic floor or wall tiles, such as those from the Par-ker® range (Porcelanosa's ceramic parquet flooring), or the Bottega series (cement texture).

A cottagecore living room with serious style
To get this sense of countryside cottage calm in your living room, you could go for wall wiles in white or beige with collections such as Marmi China or the Durango mosaic by Porcelanosa, with accents like wicker or glass lighting, unpolished wooden dressers, sofas with white textiles, classic cupboards or Victorian style tables.

Blue, white, beige or sand tones are perfect for cottagecore bathrooms. To complete the look, you could introduce a freestanding bath to the middle of the room, such as Noken Antic Duo or Unique by Krion, and frame it with wall tiles such as Malaga White or Matt by Porcelanosa. A great way of adding a more natural look would be to have plants or dried flowers in the washbasin area or a round mirror over it.

If you want to achieve the cottagecore look in your bedroom, think about your headboard, the layout of your furniture and the type of textiles to use on your bed. We recommend decorating your walls in earthy tones, combined with linen or cotton sheets, an artistic ornament and garland of lights over the bed.
