We love exploring the world of Farmhouse Decor here at The Cottage Market ! So we certainly have to pay some attention to this amazing style that is now making a huge resurgence! What is Cottage Core Decor? Well picture yourself strolling along a Traditional English Countryside Road. Wild flowers swaying in the breeze, beautiful gardens, trellises with pink roses, passer byes wearing flowing linen dresses embellished with a touch of eyelet lace. Thatched Roofs adorn the Cottages and the doors are painted a lovely pastel shade with a simple wreath made of Baby’s Breath and Twigs are hung with love. You will get a whiff of Blackberry Jam and Scones as you get closer to the Cottages and all seems peaceful and beautiful. When you walk into the warm entry way of the Cottage to visit your friends or family you will be greeted with a gracious and welcoming atmosphere. Simple yet very charming. A space that encompasses a simpler time where sustainability was beautiful and nature was a prominent part of existence. Old furniture, vintage finds, flea market treasures are perfectly placed throughout the space. Fresh flowers, floral wallpaper, vintage stripe and check fabrics, handmade ceramics, vintage china and more will be the accessories that surround you. So, if you love a Cobble Stone Walk Way, a homey look and a 1800s Farmstead Vibe you are going to fall in love with Cottage Core.
So now that you have a good feel for what Cottagecore is all about… we are going to share some ways you can get the look in your own home. Some ideas may be traditional and some may put a fresh modern spin on the idea! Hope you enjoy them all.
Consider shopping Thrift Stores and Flea Markets for an Vintage Style Hutch the you can give a fabulous makeover to… maybe in an amazing soft pastel shade or your favorite wood tone. Then create a beautiful China Display! Use your imagination. Any size Hutch can be used. A small one, a corner Hutch, or a large one and everything in between. A great way to display your favorite china pieces, Grandma’s collection or start a new hunt in Thrift Stores for a fabulous eclectic look.
A simple white Hutch Top can work perfectly placed on a dresser… or you could use an older bookshelf the same way. Then fill it up with your favorite pieces. Improvise, you just might be pleasantly surprised with the results.
You can also fill your Hutch up with all kinds of vintage fabrics, linens and quilts and it is guaranteed to add the right amount of cozy.
