Friday Cabins #46: Cottagecore Is Back Again
Looking back at the under-appreciated Deep Dive, an early Cabins Etc send on the internet-made aesthetic trend
Happy Friday everyone! It’s the most wonderful time of the week—time for your Friday Cabins newsletter, our weekly look into cabin inspiration from across the globe, curated from the pages of the internet’s most trusted source at the intersection of design and the outdoors Field Mag.
Twenty Twenty-Two, the birth year of Cabins Etc, is miraculously coming to a close, so we figured we’d take a brief look back at a few of our favorite Deep Dive topics, including the beloved and under-appreciated. These feature-length, research-heavy sends explore a specific topic to a much greater extent than our more usual easy, breezy, Friday Cabins.
As a token of our appreciation and a small holiday offering to our readers, we’re making two of these original, longer reads available to both free subscribers and paying supporters until the end of the year. Perfect material while taking a break from work now and family get-togethers later!
You’ll have to wait till next Friday to see our second topic of celebration. As for today, we’re breathing new life into the internet aesthetic that blew up during the 2020 pandemic: Cottagecore. The movement takes #cabinporn to the next level, complete with pastel hues, adorable baked goods, and a heaping dose of escapism—something we’re familiar with here at Cabins Etc.
It could be said Cottagecore is the cabin movement’s younger, Gen Z cousin, at the family function to challenge societal norms while also serving a fully conceptualized look. Whether familiar or not, click through below and dive in deep.
Enjoy! Happy almost-end-of-the-year :) See you next week
