Cozy & Popular Farmhouse Décor
Whether moving or ready to refresh, this #1 decorating trend is easy to achieve
In 2019, farmhouse décor was the most searched-for interior decorating style, with 318,950 Google searches per month – more than the second and third styles, rustic and Scandinavian, combined. Some designers have heralded the demise of the trend, but its popularity remains strong. Perhaps this longevity comes from variations within the style – modern (more minimalistic), French (romantic) and industrial (adding metals to the mix) – or from its similarity to country, primitive and rustic styles.
Or perhaps the connection between the perceived peace of rural living, nestled close to nature, helps to keep the style alive. As Oliver Wendell Douglas said, “Farm living is the life for me! Land spreading out so far and wide.”
So keep Manhattan and get you some countryside!
