This Is the Dream Home of 2016, According to Pinterest

Updated 04/25/17

Considering the number of Pinterest boards dedicated to visualizing the "dream home," it's no surprise that the popular social media site is widely regarded as an authority on the subject. Pinterest recently shared its most viral home décor pins with Tech Insider, whose resulting compilation unfolds like an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition reveal. In tapping into users' décor tastes, Pinterest was able to fashion its very own digital dream home for 2016, one that is both classically American as well as effortlessly striking.

The results are fascinating: While the style tends to shift ever so slightly from room to room, a "winning formula" definitely emerges. High ceilings, eclectic accessories, and a cool color palette serve as the connecting threads, as well as the use of greenery and statement light fixtures as accent pieces.

Users chose a more vintage-inspired, mismatched look with DIY touches for the dining room and bathroom while the living room and master bedroom achieve a more practical and modern look. Rustic wooden floors punctuate the kitchen, creating an eye-catching contrast against the farmhouse-style white cabinets and brick-inspired backsplash. Finally, the closet adds a surprisingly innovative touch, ending the home tour on an uncharacteristically urban note.
