Cottagecore is an increasingly popular aesthetic inspired by rural and farm lifestyles. There’s also a touch of whimsy to cottagecore, drawing inspiration from fairies, gnomes, and witches of your favorite fairytales. Just because this style is trending on Instagram these days doesn’t exactly mean that people are ditching their tech and heading for the countryside.
When applied to home design, this style embraces a sustainable lifestyle that is in tune with nature, mimicking traditional English countryside dress and decor. To truly embrace the style and natural decadence of simpler times, you need stylish and exciting wallpaper to transform your home into the modern cottage of your dreams.
This peel-and-stick wallpaper is a great way to venture into the world of cottagecore, bringing in a cream and dark navy blue palette that’s neutral enough to pair with your existing furniture and decor. The peonies and birds are delicate enough to suit a nursery or powder room, but the two-toned design would make for an elegant feature wall in a dining room as well. This wallpaper is a great way to dip your toe into cottagecore design because, while it is very nature-inspired, it is not so country that you can’t pair it with modern accents.
