As many married couples know, you don’t always see eye to eye on items in your home.
Marriage Decorating Compromise
To be honest, it never occurred to me that my husband would actually have an opinion on decorating. My mom always did what she wanted with the home, even moving a upright piano by herself. My dad didn’t seem to care one way or another. Well the Mister did have some opinions….
When we were first married I use to describe our decorating taste as:
Little House on the Prairie meets Star Trek
Guess which style was who’s.
We have come closer together over the years with a farmhouse industrial feel, or hubby is just being kind, not sure which.
With that being said, we have a couple of items in the house that we are not seeing eye to eye on.
WIFE VS. HUSBAND (wink)
This credenza/dresser (found at Goodwill that I want to turn into a TV Console)……..
and what’s left of our wrought iron in the living room…
I want to keep them both. Mister doesn’t want either.
So do you want to throw your two cents in? Love it or hate it? Vote now!

It’s a TIE!!!
Even though it can be a challenge to compromise on different elements, it’s good that we both have contributions to our home. Sure a wife wants to nest, but for the entire family a home is a haven away from the troubles of the world. It’s nice to BOTH feel comfortable.
Do you ever have marriage decorating differences?
