This relatively new living trend, Cafécore, brings the warmth, coziness and style of your favorite coffee bar to your own living space. This trend, inspired by the unique charm of truly authentic, small lunchrooms, creates an inviting and inspiring atmosphere that fits perfectly with a relaxed interior. Read here exactly what Cafécore means and how you can apply this style in your own home.

What is Cafécore?

Cafécore is an interior design style that mimics the cozy, artistic and slightly eclectic vibe of coffee houses. This trend encourages the use of natural materials, warm lighting, and a mix of vintage and modern furnishings to create a space that is both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. It's not just about the pretty picture; Cafécore is mainly about creating a relaxed and creative atmosphere.

Cafécore living trend

How do you create a Cafécore living space?

Natural materials and textures

Start by introducing natural materials such as wood, leather and natural stone. A wooden coffee table, leather chairs or marble side tables can instantly give your space a café-like atmosphere. Add texture with woven rugs, linen curtains and knitted throws.

Warm light and cozy corners

Lighting plays a crucial role in the Cafécore style. Choose warm, dim lighting with floor lamps, table lamps and candles to create an inviting atmosphere. Create cozy corners with comfortable chairs and a small table, perfect for reading a book or enjoying a cup of coffee.

Eclectic furnishings and decor

Combine vintage finds with modern pieces. An antique armoire combined with a modern sofa can add an interesting dynamic to your living space. Cafécore is all about personality, such as displaying unique works of art, books and plants that tell your story. The Dopamine living trend is a great mix with this one.

Coffee corner

What is a Cafécore house without a special place for coffee? Set up a small part of your kitchen or living room as a coffee corner. A compact coffee station with a stylish (N)espresso machine, your favorite mugs and a selection of coffee beans or colored coffee cups is not only functional, but also makes a beautifully styled place.

Open shelves and artistic elements

Fill open shelves with beautiful books, plants and art to create a relaxed, bohemian atmosphere. Add artistic elements, wall decor such as abstract paintings, vintage posters or handmade ceramics to give your space personality and depth.

Add a personal touch

The most important element of Cafécore is that it reflects your own unique taste. Combine items that you love and that have meaning to you. This can range from heirlooms to travel souvenirs or handmade items that you have made yourself. Your home should tell your story, and every item should contribute to the warm, inviting atmosphere that characterizes Cafécore.

Long story short: Cafécore

Cafécore is more than a trend; it's a way to bring the coziness and inspiration of your favorite coffee house into your daily life. It's all about creating a space where you can relax, recharge and enjoy the little things. With a few simple adjustments you can introduce the Cafécore style into your own home and enjoy the warmth and coziness it brings. And don't forget, the key to a successful Cafécore interior is combining styles and elements that appeal to you personally. Your house, your rules.
