It’s amazing what you can find in an afternoon of playing with Google Trends. The site hosts a wealth of information if you know what to look for — even the most popular design style by state, according to what people are searching for.
What design styles are in — and out?
The most popular design style this year is bohemian chic. Eclectic, exotic and vibrant describe it perfectly — and 14 states are smitten. Scandinavian design (11 states) and farmhouse style (10 states) follow in popularity.
Victorian design is out, falling completely off the map, and Kansas is the only state keeping minimalism alive. It looks like Americans want a casual design style with a maxi vibe, reinforcing boho chic’s popularity.
Surprisingly, while mid-century modern is popular, it doesn’t top any state’s most-searched list; most states opt for Scandinavian or modern instead.
