If you’ve spent time scrolling TikTok, Instagram, or Pinterest recently, you’ve probably heard of the new nature-inspired trend that everyone, including me, is obsessing over. I mean, who wouldn’t be wild about a trend that’s focused on creating a more outdoor-focused space within your home? Perhaps as a plant parent, I'm tiny bit biased.

It's called forestcore and it blends muted (natural) colors, plush fabrics, a heck of a lot of plants, and plenty of natural textures. For anyone with a love of nature or who dreams of running away into the good ol' woodland, this decor style is guaranteed to make you feel more at home. 

While it should be said that some elements of forestcore decor are reminiscent of the cottagecore trend, forestcore aims to bring nature as a whole into your home. Forestcore also features a li'l moodier color palette, whereas cottagecore (and her cousin, fairycore) have a more springtime feel. 

Intrigued by the concept of bringing nature into your home with a forestcore-inspired space? I’ve rounded up six key buys that’ll help to get you started.

Hi! I’m Beth, and I’m a staff writer at Real Homes. I specialize in writing about small spaces (think teeny tiny apartments and dorm rooms), cleaning hacks (I'm low-key #CleanTok obsessed), and organizing. I also have an eye for pretty things (think: quirky wall prints, scalloped edge furniture, and decadent-looking tableware) and love nothing more than a bargain buy. I’m forever searching for items that will add style to my rather sterile rental property. I'm always on the lookout for eye-catching and on-trend pieces of decor that will add personality without damaging the paintwork, or old pieces of furniture that I can breathe new life into by restoring. When I’m not writing, you’ll usually find me baking brownies, camped out at my favorite coffee house with my Kindle, testing out new beauty products to write about, or exploring with my fiancé and our dog.
