There are many versions of Minecraft that let you play in huge fantasy worlds with meticulously detailed towns and terrain that look so real that the screenshots could be photographs. These Minecraft builds are awesome, sure, but sometimes I just want to explore something smaller and more comfortable. I want to spend my time in Minecraft decorating the interior of a house or quietly landscaping my vegetable garden – and it seems a lot of people feel the same way.
Looking at the list of the most downloaded constructions every month on Planet Minecraft, nestled among the best impossible block worlds, there are always at least two or three Minecraft cottages. These aesthetically pleasing constructions are always accompanied by gardens full of flowers, warm interior decoration and inviting woods surrounded. These healthy worlds are all quintessential cottagecore.
If you haven’t heard of housing care, it’s an internet-born visual aesthetic that focuses on cottages, flowers, gardening, sewing, baking – anything to do with living a life. humble life in harmony while being cute.
Media associated with cottagecore include The Moomins, Beatrix Potter, Hobbiton from Lord of the Rings, Fantasy Worlds from the Studio Ghibli films and Anne of Green Gables. In the land of video games, Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing are prime examples of the cottagecore aesthetic. It’s an airy and highly romanticized take on the “simple life” in the countryside.
Minecraft Cabin Buildings sums it up. Not only do they have ethereal exteriors, but many builds also offer fully decorated interiors, covered in potted plants and pastel color palettes galore.
I’ve listed a few of my favorites below, including a fae bakery and a house inspired by Kiki’s delivery service. You can check out other Minecraft cabin constructions on Minecraft Planet.
