Oh my brethren, I feel your pain!
DIY was my last choice. If you take those colorful walls away, the furniture looks pretty generic, like Ikea styles. That table is huge and actually looks like a sewing table (which tends to also be huge unless it's foldable.) Seriously, that room just looks like a sewing room. Do Knitters ever use a table like that? I've never knit anything so I truly don't know. But I do sew and that type of table is used for spreading out large bolts or lengths of fabric for ease of use.
I'm guessing that part of the reason this one won is because it looks the most like a younger, modern day craft room similar to the styles of today. (Full of solid light colors, straight lines, and cheerful practicality.) But I'm really just not a fan of modern styles in general. They're kind of... boring and plasticky looking. I prefer the curves and and eccentricities of older designs and antiques, they all look like they have their own stories and can make a room look curious, magical, or quirky.
I also wonder if the word "granny" in Granny Chic turned off the younger generations of players. 😒 If they had called it something random like Kitten Crafts, I wonder if more people would have voted on it? There's actually some marketing influence in a name.
And the worst of it all? I'm not getting my Cuckoo Clock! By witness of the Gods, I'd have bought the pack just to have that clock! Oh sorry day!
*Lip trembles. Eyes well up.*

Did the younger generations (I'm a young adult, BTW) have anything against vintage styles?

I like to build cottages so I was very disappointed that the Granny Chic didn't win. We would have had some farm items in our game finally. I loved the hanging plants and the cuckoo clock especially. DYI looks like everything we already have in the game. I hope we don't have to use that crafting table to knit. I want a rocking chair too so my sims can sit in it and knit. Even the other one would have been better than the DIY. SIGH. Oh well I guess, at least it will fit in with what we already have. When they ask us what we want in the game we should try to at least get the clock and plants in. I really hope we still get the rocking chair.

This style is not at all knitting vibes and more young adult-ikea-modern-sewing vibes.
