Today I will bring in a few cool ideas of Cottagecore bedrooms and bedding for enthusiasts of this lovely aesthetic. I have already written The Most Whimsical Cottagecore Room Decor Ideas: Kitchen, Bedroom, and Living Room, which is one the most accessed posts in this blog, and now I will focus on ideas of how to use creativity and romanticize your life bringing the wonders of woodland, farm life and shabby chic in the decoration of your sacred nest.

And again I will make a note here that what I love about aesthetics is that they are a visual shortcut to help romanticize life, which should not be reduced to “TikTok trends”.

I had a childhood where I couldn’t be authentic and creative, so it was hard to discover where I belonged.

Stumbling on all these authentic beautiful and symbolic aesthetic lifestyles on Pinterest and Instagram inspired me to create this magazine inspired by guiding women through the universe of aesthetics and helping them find and live their true selves through the visual stories that aesthetics can tell. It doesn’t matter if you are 16 or 40 years old. If your soul calls for it, do it.

For example, if you love playing chess and listening to classical music, embrace elements of dark academia aesthetics into your life, and you will have a more fulfilled soul. But, if what makes your heart sing like little birds is the idea of picking mushrooms in the woods and baking fresh homemade bread on a farm, it means that you can start incorporating the cottagecore lifestyle with the simple things, like bedroom decoration.

Romanticize your life with a cottagecore bedroom is about envisioning a place where you can enter barefoot, feel immersed in a whimsical fairytale nature landscape, and travel through worlds with a lovely vintage grandma-inspired reading nook, where you will serve yourself a cup of tea from a vintage letter, being always certain of how much you deserve that.

There are some people already rocking cottagecore bedroom decor and bedding sets on Instagram, and below are my favorites among such talents who mastered the art of creating the most inviting and magical bedrooms that are fit for Princess Aurora or Anne of Green Gables.


  • Floral accents: From the wallpaper to the bedding to the vase beside the bed. Florals are romantic and nature symbols that are key in any type of cottagecore decoration, from vintage to gothic, to modern and cute.
  • Install a board and batten is a cool way to add a vintage rustic charm and break the overdose of information you may have from a full wallpaper wall.
  • Checked, gingham, patchwork, and crochet patterns and textures reference Grandma’s charming table towels from the old days and an iconic print in the cottagecore aesthetic.
  • Embroidered details: The more handmade and manual things in the bedroom, the better. The calm and patience it takes to make an embroidered piece, plus the strong symbolic relation to femininity makes this a nice alternative, from embroidered framed pieces to cute pillows.
  • Bees, strawberries, honey, fox, mushroom, owl, ducks…just play with the moist whimsical elements and creatures of the farm and woods that will help you bring the natural world inside your dreamy sacred space.
  • Trow pillows overdose: Coziness is at the core of the cottagecore lifestyle and it is visually expressed by its aesthetics. Mix and match patterns, laces and frills with natural and cute color palettes in your bedroom.
  • Vintage nostalgic elements: Go treasure hunting on your grandmother’s stuff for little towers, antique vases, vintage frames or a collection of something to keep a real energy of travel time in the comfort of the old days more realistically and emotionally. Of course, you can just buy vintage things as well.

Now that we know the basic elements of cottagecore that will make the overall composition and look and feel of a bedroom, is time to see what type of cottagecore suits you better.

Is it a simple comfortable natural and vintage nest where Jane Austen would sleep or a cozy colorful place that resembles the comfort of being embraced by your grandmother’s warm hug but that is still modern?

Let us start with the trendiest: This colorful mix of vintage florals and gingham in muted, antique tones is a perfect representation of nostalgic grandmother energy with a hint of modern, mature vibes.

There are no cute animals or lovely mushrooms here, but a sober, earthy (mustards) yet feminine (dusty rose and dark red) and tranquilizing (muted blue) color palette, which makes this a favorite for millennial mature yet cool women who identify with the cottagecore aesthetic. The colors are sober but vivid. The florals are big, yet sophisticated and the vases add a touch of cuteness and modernity.

The linen sheets males all the difference to evoke a more sophisticated and slow vives to the bedding.

Same energy as the examples above. The modern vases and side lamps bring a hint of showy and modern vibes contrasting with the nostalgic bedding.

The options below are a very mature and vintage take on the cottagecore interior. These are the rooms where I picture Jane Austen’s characters cozying up to read a novel. Sober colors, earthy hues, beiges, and woods set the tone here.

The ideal way to make a perfect cottagecore bedroom is to live next to real nature and have large windows to merge with this nature. You donโ€™t need to live in a cabin in the forest, but a window with a view to a little garden, or backyard, or even a balcony full of plants, where the sun can come in, creates the perfect scenario you need to feel the cottagecore atmosphere.

This pretty bedroom is a mix of cottagecore and light academia. The wall gallery made only of vintage frames and prints mixed with the subtle delicate floral patterns of the wall and bedding creates a beautiful story of vintage romance.

@everlinet

The same wall, but a change in the bedding with more crochet, pinks and patterns creates more femininity.

In this example, one simple statement piece makes all the difference. She almost literally brought the trees from the woods to the bedroom on the bed and the side table.

Combined with a woodland bedsheet and fairy lights was enough for a first step on a simple and whimsical cottagecore-inspired bedroom decor. See also Fairy Lights in the Bedroom & Living Room: 10 Moods They Can Set in the Decor + Ideas.

So, I started this type of post with AI-generated inspiration here in my light academia kitchen ideas post, and now I will do the same thing here. I believe AI can be a very nice tool for creatives to expand possibilities and visual possibilities beyond what is common. As a professional designer, I do my best to do realistic options and to be transparent with what is AI and what is not.

Therefore, I made some bedding ideas stuff that are perfectly possible to replicate and not so common to find on trendy cottagecore profiles, so you can play with them and envision new options for a place that truly suits you. In the case of the cottagecore bedroom, the bedding makes the statement

Ok, I loved and adored this one so much. I wanted a whimsical, adult and chic dark cottagecore bedroom and it turned out so much more magical than I had envisioned.

Here we have a mix of luxurious dark blue velvet with whimsical woodland mushroom wallpaper and vintage details, such as the side lamp, the side table and the vintage floral print from the sheets.

The pink linen sheets smoothing the heavy and dark energy and transmitting a peaceful cottage balance to the environment was a happy surprise.
