What is Cottagecore Aesthetic?
Cottagecore is an aesthetic that draws inspiration from medieval English
villages and the quiet, idyllic life of the countryside. This aesthetic
appeared around 2010 but has recently gained significant popularity
thanks to social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. It is
based on the idea of living in harmony with nature and is part of a larger trend of Nature-Based aesthetics, such as Naturecore and Fairycore.

How to make your room look Cottagecore?
if you're reading this, most of the work has already been done!
To create a cottagecore aesthetic room, you can incorporate elements of Nature-Based Aesthetics, such as tapestries and posters with mushroom and floral motifs. Posters with natural colors will also add atmosphere to your room. Consider adding objects such as artificial mushrooms and ivy to add freshness to your aesthetic room.
Lighting is also an important component of an Cottagecore Aesthetic Room. The main rule is never to use a big light, use different garlands, lamps
or even candles! light should be warm to create a feeling of coziness. Unfortunately the cold light will not work at all and will only kill the vibe. Additionally, you can use CD discs and vinyl records as wall decor.
When choosing bedding, consider sets with natural patterns, such as cow spots or floral pattern.
