When it comes to home decor trends, what’s old is new (yet) again.

Many of us have been searching for vintage furniture rather than buying brand-new: Art deco-style furniture has returned from the 1920s to 2020, and the matte black look is back because of the rise of industrial and minimalist styles.

In 2019, farmhouse architecture and decor was the most searched home trend on Google. But a new year hasn’t made farmhouse go away — in fact, far from it. The trend has just gotten a modern makeover.

That’s all thanks to cottagecore, an aesthetic all about cultivating the rustic farm aesthetic for modern day.

For a real rustic look, farmhouse traditionally means turning to things like gingham, plaid, wicker and wood to decorate around the (farm)house. In fact, 2019′s version of farmhouse included elements such as reclaimed wood, metals with antique finishes and barn doors.

The cottagecore trend has added whimsical touches to the decor style — think mushroom pillows, pressed flower jewelry boxes and strawberry embroidery hoops.

Consider adding gingham, plaid, wicker and wood to get the cottagecore style.

Even Anthropologie’s latest home collection was inspired by farmhouse style, with painted earthenware and distressed leather chairs. Etsy’s list of top home decor trends for 2020 had hints of the country with “redefined resin,” burl wood and bee motifs all in this year. Target, too, has a dedicated farmhouse section to shop through.

So if you’re looking to go farmhouse, you’ll find that there’s lots of rustic and rural-looking home decor to add to your cart (or basket). From incense holders shaped like little critters to a wood-and-metal blanket ladder that doubles as a bookcase, we picked out farmhouse and cottagecore home decor you’ll love if you appreciate the look of the countryside.
