When describing your dream design or planning a room makeover, broad design terms are often thrown about in conversation: I’m going for a mid-century modern feel, or, eclectic-boho is kind of what I’m after. But, as argues, the details that make up those spaces—what they call “mini-trends”—can really set one space apart from the rest. 

So, what’s the best-loved mini-trend on Instagram at the moment? According to Instagram users in influential cities like London and New York, #LineArt is huge.

“On Instagram, the devil is in the details,” HouseholdQuotes notes in its study writeup. “An overarching design trend like #boho or #midcenturymodern may make you yearn to decorate, but it takes a specific detail like #crushedvelvet, #lineart, or #loveseat to seduce you into making the first move.”

And according to their findings, #LineArt is the most-tagged Instagram mini-trend with over 6.3 million posts in the United Kingdom alone.

“Simple #lineart illustrations feature on art prints, upholstery designs, wall murals— anywhere you can put a pattern or a picture (and without risking a color clash),” the site reads, noting that line art is timeless and has been on trend since the era of da Vinci. 

HouseholdQuotes continues, “Buy a print from a contemporary line artist, get printed cushion covers, or draw your own!” Because line art is so simplistic, you can easily put this trend to work in your own space free of charge. All you need is a blank piece of paper, a pen, and a little imagination.

Over on the HouseholdQuotes website, you can check out the virtual map the team created that shows which Instagram mini-trends are hot in different cities around the world. Bostonians love #GraniteCountertops, for example, whereas decor enthusiasts in Los Angeles love a good #Houseplants moment.

But with #LineArt at the forefront, you may just get inspired to put this minimalist art trend here, there, and everywhere after scrolling through the millions of Instagram tagged posts.
