HOW TO DESIGN YOUR HOME FOR HIM & HER
You and your partner might agree with a lot of things…
But you might also have completely different tastes in others. And if interior design is one of those...
Well, there’s going to be a lot of arguments when it comes to decorating your home.
But it doesn’t have to be the most stressful situation of your life. If you follow these tips, you might actually enjoy decorating your home together and get through it in one piece.
#1. Mix and match
You prefer a traditional European style decor, while your partner loves the modern look.
Instead of sticking to one single design style for your entire home, why not mix and match?
Maybe you use the living room space more, while your partner prefers to relax in bed. Find what REALLY matters for you and your partner. Now make the decisions for the things that matter the most to you and let your partner make the decisions for what matters the most for them.
And if you have several things that both really matter to you…
Sometimes you just have to accept that things aren’t going to go your way. But that doesn’t mean nothing should.
Instead, you can take turns choosing what you want. Let your partner choose the appliances, while you choose the beds.
But sometimes it’s better to just…
#3. Play it safe
Instead of going crazy with design choices…
Sometimes playing it safe is the better option. This might mean neutral colours, minimalistic decor, and toned down accessory choices.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t put some personality into things.
Pick a few of your favourite items and let your partner pick some of theirs. You can both go crazy with these and make it just the way you like it.
The perfect home for him and her
In the end it might not be the perfect home for you. Or for your partner.
But if you follow the tips above and find a way to both be happy with your home…
It’s the perfect home for you as a couple.
And when you’re looking to design your home for him and her, that’s what you should be striving for, shouldn’t you?
