Modern Cottagecore Kitchen Ideas

Cottagecore is a popular and evolving aesthetic, both for the home as well as for style in general. Akin to Provençal  or shabby chic, cottagecore naturally suits the kitchen and dining spaces, celebrating a simplistic and earthy lifestyle aligned with organic foods, home cooking, and slow living. Here, I’m sharing some beautiful modern cottagecore kitchen finds, from useful kitchen gadgets to decorative pieces!

Highlighting casual livability, the modern cottagecore kitchen highlights natural fibers and earth-tone dyes. With organic, simple shapes, this aesthetic is all but the embodiment of the slow living movement. Overall, this style brings uncomplicated design to a much-used area of the home.

Useful Tools Made Lovely

One of my favorite things about a cottagecore kitchen vibe is how simple things are made lovely through texture, pattern, and small design changes. For example, cloth napkins and dish cloths are a great tangible, tactile swap for disposable paper towels and rags. Besides being more sustainable than single-use alternatives, they also offer an opportunity to add color and character to the kitchen. In my kitchen, I like to keep a mix of dishcloths and tea towels or cloth napkins. The former I use for cleaning and drying dishes, while the latter I use for meals.

Pro tip: for cloth dishtowels and nice fabric napkins, be sure to check the sale sections. I keep an eye on stores like Anthropologie, Crate & Barrel, West Elm, and Williams Sonoma. I have found some of my favorite sets of these cloth towels in this way!

Each of the serving pieces here offer both form and function. They are easy to use when preparing a meal but also act as lovely modern cottagecore kitchen decor when not in use. I think this is particularly true of the pretty pie plate and small dishes above, or the engraved cutting board below. Each of these could be displayed with a simple stand like this between uses.
