Cottage core, an aesthetic that celebrates simple living, still has a huge following and has remained popular for the last 3-4 years. This is most certainly not a new trend, but a revisit to life in times gone by in a new way.
Popularised in the 70s, with an idealistic lifestyle in mind of living off the land, and being self-sufficient, cottage core embraces artisan trades. This way of life has certainly grown in favour since lockdown. The simplistic aesthetics of this follow through into bathrooms – with the core idea of 1. naturalistic living in the countryside, and 2. that your personal space at home should be safe, welcoming, cozy and inviting, offering respite from the outside world – in essence your sanctuary, which is often the request we receive from clients when designing their bathrooms.
