How to Decorate Your Home With the Cottagecore Aesthetic

The Cottagecore trend has taken over the Internet, especially on TikTok and Instagram. In reality, the aesthetic is nothing new. This style has been popular in magazines like Country Living for decades. However, the spirit of cottagecore is that young people are choosing to focus on nostalgia, rather than new technology. They want to feel connected to nature, and live a simple life. It’s a soothing escape to the stress of everyday reality. Basically, the whole vibe is going back in time to live out the dream life in a cottage in the woods. So, how does one transform their house into paradise? Here at Home Addict, we’re here to go over some of the ways you can incorporate Cottagecore into your home.

30. Buy Fresh Flowers For Your Table

One of the best ways to freshen up your home is with a bouquet of flowers. These smell great, look beautiful, and make people smile. In a lot of cottagecore posts, you’ll see people either picking flowers, or showing them off in the background of photos. A lot of times, people associate fresh flowers with luxury, because they’re seen as an extra expense. This is a huge misconception, because they don’t have to be fancy. In fact, in the real countryside, flowers are everywhere. You could pick wild flowers from your own backyard for free, or find a cheap bouquet from a local farmer’s market. Even if you live in the city, most grocery stores  sell bouquets for around $10. They last for at least a week or two, and they really do make a big difference in brightening up the home.
