After reading a couple of comments
in our most recent open thread
, we noticed a few of our readers are dealing with a problem common to couples sharing a space: He
wants bachelor pad cool, with minimal furnishings, a big flat panel television, and neutral colours throughout. She
wants comforting and feminine, with colours that soothe and an assortment of pillows to sink into. Or he
won't give up the ratty recliner he's owned since his college days (too many great napping and Nintendo memories) and is okay with getting by with the bare necessities, while she
wants to create a home that's inviting and beautiful.
We've heard of too many couples who've fought for long stretches because of differences in decor, and we wanted to find out who in the relationship is making decor decisions amongst our readers.
