When you decorate your house is there a man in your life that participates in decision making? Or does your man have few opinions? There are a lot of opinions swirling around our place. Every couple things I suggest buying for our condo, ends up getting nixed. I appreciate that he has opinions, and offers input but when he doesnt like some very important design components, it sort of makes me want to cry. For example...
We need new sofas for our family room, and I fell in love with this Room and Board Sofa. Immediately, a big fat NO. Not comfy enough...
I wanted to use this Rubie Green Leopard fabric on a bench. NO WAY.
Wanted this chandelier for our dining room. NOPE.
Am I the only one with these struggles? Does he deserve a kick in the pants or should I feel lucky he cares...? I switch between these two feelings on a daily basis.
I'm not sure I would want a room thats this girly...
but I would want one like this... and the real question is, would I it be shot down? The silvery tufting and floral wallpaper might push him over the edge.
Luckily, we have found a lot of middle ground. I have opened his mind to upholstered headboards (something he thought he hated). Floral artwork (I win, I win). Wallpaper in the bathroom, done and done. And even have fought and won the battle of pink.
So... the real question, what do you do? I've seen some of you houses and can tell you've won the battle. How about the rest of you?
