Spring has arrived, at long last, and with the world around us suddenly coming into bloom I’ve got flowers on my mind. The Cottagecore aesthetic is a trend that has seen a lot of growth over the last year. Though it’s not a look I’m naturally drawn to, I love bringing all forms of nature into the home. I see this trend as a slightly more folksy version of maximalism, and whist I’m not going to be falling for it hook line and sinker, I may just add one or two selected curated pieces, possibly in blush and rust tones, to my home this year.
So today I thought I’d share the pieces which have caught my attention lately. From new classic prints by Liberty and House of Hackney, to silhouetted modern shapes through warm hues my edit is full of variety. There’s a small part of me that would love to have a really pattern-layered vintage room in our home, and I have included some which would be perfect for this, think blousy Cecil Beaton drawings and painterly set designs. Which is your favourite style and piece? I’d love to know in the comments below.
