You may have already heard the term 'cottagecore' but don't know it means or why people are talking about it! Well, you have come to the right place! In this post, we will breakdown the meaning of cottagecore and how you can create an inspired interior using our wall prints.
What is Cottagecore?
Cottagecore (also known as Farmcore and Countrycore) is a term derived from the two words composing the word: cottage and core. Cottagecore is a movement hearkening back to a simpler way of living inspired by agricultural/rural life. Local food, artisans, romantic gardens, flowers, animals and no technology. (Yes, we are aware of the irony of people reading an online article about no technology).
However, there’s so much more to Cottagecore, than just rare countryside scenery and nostalgic peasant clothing.
The concept of Cottagecore is centred around simple living in harmony with the nature surrounding you.
Ramona Jones, Social Media Influencer and author of the book 'Escape into Cottagecore' explains;
“Cottagecore embodies the idea of a sustainable lifestyle, in harmony with nature. Aesthetically, it’s a nod to the traditional, romantic, and nostalgic English countryside,“
