“Modern farmhouse” is the most popular interior design style, topping searches on Google in 32 states, according to a recent study.

The interior design studio Hovia analyzed Google Trends data with over 575 search terms relating to 25 interior design styles, revealing the most popular style in each state.

Modern farmhouse design — certainly a popular look in the Hamptons — surpassed any other interior design search. The style was particularly popular in Texas, where searches average 8,647 times per month, followed by Ohio with 3,717 searches and North Carolina with 3,497.

Hovia described modern farmhouses as being similar to country-style homes, though with “a cleaner and fresher aesthetic by including white or light colors accompanied by pottery, wooden furnishings, rattan baskets and earth-toned décor.”

“Feng Shui” was the second most popular interior design style in the U.S., predominantly in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada and New Mexico.

Rustic and coastal were the third most popular design styles. Montana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Wyoming seemed to favor rustic interiors, while Delaware, Florida, Rhode Island and South Carolina were partial to searching for coastal style.

Lastly, in the fourth position were several styles, starting with “mid-century modern,” which was most searched in Oregon, while Mississippi searchers favored “French country.” Also in fourth place was “industrial,” which was New York’s most popular design, and Arkansas residents searched a lot for “eclectic” style.

While New Yorkers overall may be searching most for industrial style, modern farmhouses in the Hamptons are quite common. Here are a few on the market right now:
