De "Interior design trends"

Have you already read Annaleena Leino Karlsson's last post? She discusses the difficulty of giving an answer to people asking  what is trendy right now in Interior design.  
Annaleena's considerations made me wonder how much interior trends affect  my decision to pick objects and patterns for my home (or just select them for my wish list). Sometimes I almost feel overwhelmed by all those beautiful images, pins and posts: there are so many "trendy ideas" it made me hard to pick one. Today copper and concrete + pink/dark grey shades are the must-do/must-have and I love the shades and the design proposals but ... are they really me? 
Yes and not. 
Like most of you out there, I'm inspired by new stylings and I adore to discover new, unpredictable ways to arrange things. But, at the same time, I need to let everything decants for a while in order to be able to pick MY choice and not simply consume that idea. That's why I love Annaleena's house: it has got that timeless atmosphere, a place that just her can call home. It's an expression of the real life of someone. So,I would say that, more than a trend, I'm searching for my timeless reality to call home.

What about you? How much do trends affect your approach to your home?
