Every home is unique in its own way, especially when it comes to interior design. Homeowners often choose design styles that are influenced by what is popular in their part of the world. Joybird took a look at the styles most searched by state using Google Trends.

The most popular design choice across the country is the industrial aesthetic. As the dominant design trend in Illinois, this style takes influence from old factories and other industrial spaces with features like weathered wood, exposed brick, metal appliances, and concrete flooring. Industrial chic incorporates the open layouts of cities and lofts so homeowners can achieve a “warehouse” feel with a modern twist.

Traditional was the next most checked style and is largely popular in Texas. With the objective of creating an atmosphere of antiquity, this style is old fashioned and romantic, according to Small Design Ideas. It requires natural items like wood and fabrics as well as artificially aged furniture and decor to reflect the fashion of decades past.

The shabby chic design is big in Bay State and places emphasis on the appearance of an aged space with distressed furniture and mismatched decor. It can also feature natural elements like plants and clay or stone accessories, according to Freshome.com.

Homeowners in Georgia gravitate toward the traditional interior design style which is characterized as a rough, elderly and casual aesthetic based on natural inspirations according to a Housebeautiful.com article. Materials like unfinished wood as well as stones and burlap fabrics characterize this particular style that aims to use organic materials in their most natural state.

California’s beaches inspire the coastal design that’s the most popular trend in the state. In this particular aesthetic, normal light and soothing colors create a natural and relaxed atmosphere. A simplistic layout, blend of different textures, and abundance of cushions put the completing touches on this seaside theme.
