Farmhouse with a 316% increase in search volume
The classic farmhouse aesthetic brings a sense of warmth and is all about neutral hues, wood accents and combining new furniture with old.
“It’s easy to replicate, and people are incorporating the trend with a modern approach throughout the home, with minimalist elements that resemble Scandinavian design,” said Wethrift trend expert, Nick Drewe. “Trying to strike the right balance between rustic and modern living, with contemporary aspects that reflect today’s ideal home.”
Nature-inspired with a 227% increase in search volume
“One way to bring a touch of nature into your home is by adding skylights, or different types of materials and sheer drapes,” Drewe said. “Doing this will allow the natural light to shine through your home. Natural materials like wood, rattan, bamboo and stone are another great feature to incorporate into your space.”
Nature-inspired trends in the home are really all about reducing stress and creating a serene space for one’s physical and mental well-being.
Bold patterns with a 217% increase in search volume
Adding to that touch of unique personality that so many people look to create in their space can come in small forms and bold patterns. It can be as simple as the fabric choice for curtains, blinds, bedding and even wallpaper.
Maximalist interior with a 212% increase in search volume
The maximalist interior trend plays with layering many different patterns, textures, colors, prints, accessories and art, going hand in hand with the bold patterns trend.
“For years we have seen the interior scene saturated with beige colors and minimalist living spaces, but now we are seeing interior lovers creating homes that are a statement of their personality.”
Contemporary with a 154% increase in search volume
This style showcases space rather than items and creates a subtle and sophisticated look within the home. Nickel, steel, chrome and toned-down materials are often incorporated throughout the interior, avoiding bold and bright designs.
“It’s the opposite of maximalist interior and is more for an individual wanting minimalist space,” Drewe noted. “Think of a neutral palette, clean lines and organic silhouettes that create a more modern and current style. Open spaces are a popular feature. For example, you might add an open dining space or living space instead of an enclosed area.”
Retro style with a 97% increase in search volume

Ceramic plates with a 95% increase in search volume
“As we wave goodbye to BBQs and start to bring the outdoor celebrations inside, more people are looking to upgrade their tableware,” Drewe said. “Having matching dinner plates, bowls and serving plates goes a long way to making your table setting feel more cohesive. Stylish ceramic dinnerware has the ability to elevate even the most modest meals.”
‘70s interior with a 88% increase in search volume
The ’70s trend is all about blending earthy tones like hunter green, mustard yellow and blues with materials such as rattan and bamboo. Searches for rattan have actually shot up by 77% on Pinterest.
