I'm watching one of the vast swathe of home makeover shows, and I'm always mystified by this idea that things are "in" or "out" for decorating in the same way they are for clothes (and, for this particular post, let's not get me started on my fashion rant).

I have a house. I decorate my house because I like the paint or the floor or the cushions or the curtains. It never even crossed my mind to think "ohh, I wonder if I'm keeping up with current decorating trends?" - why would it? How many people will be coming to my house who will have a clue what's trendy? How many people who have a clue will give a shit?

Plus, what is the purpose of having trends in decorating? How many people repaint their walls every year, recover their sofas, update their curtains, etc, to keep up with whatever the mysterious 'they' is dictating is now "the look"? Who has the money? Who has the time?

Am I alone, here? It just seems to be mystifying.
