Cottagecore interior trend

How to style a cottagecore interior - find inspiration on Pinterest

During lockdown, did you find yourself yearning for simpler times? Wanting to escape to the countryside, immerse yourself in nature and find joy in the little things?

That’s what cottagecore is all about. It’s an aesthetic that celebrates rural life and brings it into full bloom with a palette of neutrals paired with chalky pastels, floral accents and vintage inspired accessories.

What does cottagecore look like?

Think shabby chic but less shabby and more vintage elegance. Pair classic neutrals with chalky pastels and floral prints for a palette that is reminiscent of the English countryside.

It’s a carefree, eclectic mix of old and new. It’s comfortable, relaxing, natural and pretty.

Sofas from The Lounge Co. Are perfect for the cottagecore trend – they're all handcrafted, with love, by expert craftsmen right here in the UK. Find out more about our quality and craftsmanship.

What makes a cottagecore sofa?

To get that cottagecore look, choose shapes that are classically elegant and fabrics that are soft and muted. It makes sense to opt for a neutral sofa and accessorise with an accent chair, cushions or a throw in a more colourful shade. Take a look at our gorgeous selection of fabrics; you can choose up to 6 and get samples delivered free.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours, patterns and textures – as long as they’ve got a laid-back, vintage vibe they’ll work.
