If your idea of a great time is to pick wildflowers, bake bread, partake in needlecraft or imagine that Mr. Darcy will drop in for afternoon tea, cottagecore was made for you. The lifestyle trend has gained popularity in the past year, and it's an aesthetic nod to traditional English-country style. It's everything romantic and nostalgic that you love about every Jane Austen heroine. Cottagecore gives a whole new meaning to coziness when decorating your home, and you don't have to live in a cottage in the woods to achieve it. Here are some practical items you can add to your home to get you closer to the cottagecore designs of your dreams.
