Cottagecore decorating is one of those timeless decorating styles. Have you ever wondered what is cottagecore decorating? Are you finding you are attracted to a more cottagecore style? It’s a style so adaptable to almost any home. It tends to focus on simplicity, vintage, and finds beauty in the slightly worn and chipped, and embraces pretty florals and bringing the garden inside. While it changes names over time, from Cottage to Cottagecore, it always stays constant in creating a warm and inviting home.
Here are a few great examples of cottage decorating ideas. Cottagecore style starts with many foundational elements that are classic and timeless such as subway tile, board and batten and beadboard wall treatments. I love these wall options because they are so timeless they can lend themselves to many vintage and classic styles.
This vintage boys room at Alabaster Rose features the simple and clean look of a vintage bed with grainsack pillows and a chippy wardrobe.
Cottagecore also uses lots of colorful florals and vintage items such as gorgeous vases. You can find these inexpensively at the thrift stores, so there is no need to break the bank when decorating! Mixing and matching is always a great idea!

What are some key ways to bring in Cottagecore style? Bring in florals with pillows, drapery and fresh flowers. Add the rustic, chippy and worn. Use natural woods contrasted with painted pieces, and embrace the handmade, home baked, hand sewn and the idea of simpler living.

We love this fresh take on stenciled floral curtains in the dining room at The 2 Seasons. They feel cottagey and sweet! Floral curtains with either big, or small flowers on them can play a big part of cottagecore style.
As do handcrafts such as a crocheted or knitted blanket or quilt. These softer touches add to the cozy and warm feel.
This pretty mantel at The Gilded Junkyard has some of my favorite vintage and cottage elements! Vintage silver, mirrors and frames! Creating a collage wall in cottage style speaks to the eclectic and gathered feeling.
