With its own cuisine, climate, and culture, every state across the country is unique. What immediately comes to mind you think about your state? Well, chances are you’ll find your answers illustrated on these state-themed wallpapers.

Home furnishing company Joybird asked Reddit users what items truly represent their state. Using the floods of user-generated responses of what’s iconic in each state across the country, the Joybird team designed unique state-themed wallpaper for all 50. The wallpapers mainly feature illustrations of food, animals, plants, weather, and activities. There are no overlapping themes in the wallpaper designs, proof of how unique every state is.

Since its biggest city is known as "The Big Apple," it’s not surprising that New York’s wallpaper has apples, along with yellow taxis and pizza. Encompassing the entire state, the California illustration features the Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood, palm trees, and In-N-Out Burger. Down south, drawings of footballs, peanuts, and barbecue cover the Alabama wallpaper.

“Our team is from all over the country and we love talking about the iconic things that our home states are known for,” the folks at Joybird wrote on its website. “The idea of creating state-themed wallpapers that encompass all of the quirks of local living made us smile, so we decided to make a project out of it!”

While the wallpaper isn’t available for purchase, you can find out what characterizes your state here. Want to customize your own wallpaper? Here’s how you can turn book pages and screenplays into DIY wallpaper.
