Behind the Design of the Cozy Cottage Trend


The Promise of Simpler Living and Pastoral Comforts

The Cozy Cottage trend experienced a revival in interest during the pandemic, especially in urban environments where people with small spaces were stuck indoors. It is a mainstream interior design trend that is rooted in slower times and simpler living. At a time when everyone was spending their days at home, Cozy Cottage provided a design aesthetic that satisfied a desire for open spaces while bringing much-needed comfort and tranquility to the home.

A very important element of this design is how it invites you in and makes you feel at home. Fond memories like old pictures, family heirlooms or antiques are used to bring personality and familiarity to the space. It’s thoughtful touches that evoke comfort while still maintaining a clean, modern and lived-in aesthetic.

Essential Cozy Cottage Design Elements

Creating a carefree, airy interior with nostalgic charm is the spirit of Cozy Cottage. While there is no set rule book for this specific design trend, there are popular elements often found in Cozy Cottage interiors.

  • Wood plank/shiplap walls
  • Built-ins
  • Pastel colors
  • Open shelving
  • Warm, textured wood flooring
  • Vintage-looking hardware
  • Interior shutters
  • Neutral and floral fabrics
  • Wood or wicker furniture

What is the Secret to Making a Home Feel Cozy?

Home should be a place where you feel at peace and tucked away from the hectic pace of the outside world — it should feel comfortable and inviting. Cozy Cottage is all about warm, intimate spaces (hence the word “cozy” in the name) that allow you to take a deep breath and relax.

There are a few easy ways you can bring coziness into your home:

  1. Throws or blankets
  2. Deep pile rugs
  3. Potted plants
  4. Books on display
  5. Candles
  6. Botanical prints
  7. Soft shades or curtains
  8. Muted throw pillows
  9. Dimmable lights or Edison bulbs

How Important is the Flooring in Cozy Cottage Interior?

There is something to be said about the feeling beneath your feet when you walk on the beach or across a wood floor. The texture and warmth under your toes remind you of a simpler time and can transport you back to childhood or a distant memory.

The type of flooring you choose for your home should complement the interior design of the room it’s in. When piecing together the perfect Cozy Cottage design, don’t forget to think about the flooring.

Here at Metroflor, we have a collection of luxury vinyl plank designs that instill an earthy, natural aesthetic to complete your Cozy Cottage interior. Several of Metroflor’s spring design releases are inspired by the Cozy Cottage trend including:
