North Carolina, get your paintbrushes ready – inspiration is on the way. This is the most popular trend in our state. We also included the other top trends of home decorating in the country.

  • Modern: 32 States

    Modern design leads the way, and by quite a margin.

Across the country, it is the most popular look, with states including California (61,080 searches), Illinois (14,060 searches), and New York (29,920 searches) all helping to propel it to the top.

  • Farm House: North Carolina and 13 more states

    Second place goes to the farmhouse look. A farmhouse home is characterized by a more relaxed style, rustic furnishings, natural materials, and real comfort. Farmhouse design can take you right to the heart of the countryside, no matter where you live. It is most popular in Alabama (4,630 searches), Indiana (4,760 searches), Mississippi (2,230 searches), and North Carolina (10,450 searches).
