Kitchen (Vintage, Scandinavian, Traditional)
The most sought-after interior decor for the kitchen is vintage with a staggering 391,131 pins. A vintage kitchen can be easily infused with your own personality to make it distinctive, by tactically cluttering up the space with anything from aged kitchenware passed down through generations to great finds from flea markets. Falling 34.7% behind as the second most-loved kitchen theme is Scandinavian, with 255,235 pins, whilst a traditional style kitchen places third with 254,661 pins.
Living Room (Vintage, Coastal, Minimalist)
Pinned 259,021 times, vintage is once again the most popular interior design style for the living room area, with antique rugs and oversized couches emanating a warm, welcoming vibe. The second most wanted interior decor for the hub of our homes is coastal, with pins totalling 81,114 – 68.7% less than vintage. From turquoise to sea green, play with your favourite ocean hues to achieve that laid back beach vibe, and decorate with driftwood accessories to capture the essence of a relaxed coastal interior.
Bathroom (Contemporary, Vintage, Rustic)
The most desired interior decor for the bathroom is contemporary with 172,146 pins. Neutral accents, clean lines and a no-frills approach have clearly appealed to many, as contemporary themed bathrooms received around 50% more pins than both vintage (88,440 pins) and rustic (81,838 pins) themes, which finished in second and third place respectively.
Bedroom and Home Office
A shabby chic decor takes the lead for bedroom interiors with a total of 119,961 pins. Dress your room in your favourite prints – florals or polka dots – and pile your bed up high with ruffled pillows for a nostalgic touch and extra coziness to boot. 11% behind is the bohemian decor which received 106,793 pins in total.
For the home office, an industrial design style is most on-trend, with it being pinned 52,163 times by those that are seeking to spruce up their home workspace by adding a bold touch of wood and metal.
