A recent study from Compare My Move has gathered the latest Instagram data to rank the top interior design trends. The results have thrown a whole new light on what’s currently getting the most phone screen time.

Smashing to the top of the survey, by over a million posts, is the humble houseplant. It’s becoming increasingly important to connect with nature in our busy world, especially when recent studies from NASA have proven the huge beneficial impact nature can have on our health. They play a pivotal role in detoxifying the air around us and providing us with fresh oxygen.



Close behind at number four is a popularity for ‘upcycling’, again revealing the more sweeping documented consumer trend for more sustainable interior choices. Becoming environmentally friendly is transcending everyday purchases, and is becoming increasingly important in even life-long choices like renovation decisions.



Other top mentions are neon signs, which are often placed with an industrial backdrop – as they look especially good against exposed brick wall.

The top ten on the list are as follows:

  1. house plants
  2. gallery walls
  3. neon signs
  4. upcycled furniture
  5. shutters
  6. kitchen islands
  7. pallet furniture
  8. feature walls
  9. macramé plant hangers
  10. log burners
How many of the top ten are found in your home?
