Top 10 Design Trends Not Mid Century For Idaho

Once upon a time, I worked in the building materials industry when modern design first started making a come back. A tile company had done extensive studies and reported that only 10% of the population favored sleek modern building design, the rest preferred more of a traditional or transitional look.  For some reason, this always stood out in my mind, and whenever I see ultra-modern homes or interior design, I quietly wonder to myself, how many people actually want to live with that kind of style today? 

Recently, while touring a beautiful new construction home that had been staged with head-to-toe mid century modern furnishings, I overhead others commenting how “cool” it was, but they wouldn’t want it for their own home.  

Curious to see if today’s statistics were similar to the past, or if preferences have changed, I found some interesting facts: 

- In Idaho, the top 10 design trend searched for in 2017 was shabby chic!

- A huge number of people are looking for Victorian design nationwide.

- The second most searched for design trend in the U.S. was Bohemian.

Although there’s lots to love about modern design – sleek, space saving, and the beautiful mix of natural elements – I have to wonder if builders & designers are really appealing to the widest audience when they choose to decorate with a mid-century vibe.
