Cottagecore mixes styles within a room, and much of the furnishings are second-hand finds. Simple window treatments pair with painted furniture.
In the kitchen, think sustainable surfaces, wooden spoons and bread boards, vintage crocks for storage, and glass canning jars.
Bathrooms are simpler without high-end finishes. Here, a vintage claw foot tub is the main centerpiece with a simple shelf, painted floor, and minimal décor.
Patterns color are pleasingly mixed and might remind you of your grandmother’s home – which is why cottagecore is sometimes called granny chic. My newly redecorated bedroom embraces a bit of this simple living movement.

I love the soft and colorful handmade quilts from Needle Eye India, like this small sampling. Quilts are a great way to use fabric scraps. You can also fashion scraps into pillows, small throws, or wall hangings. I used to quilt and I rather miss it. The best part was putting different colors and patters of fabric.
