Sounds pretty familiar. My boyfriend wants me to get him a print of David Bowie’s mugshot to hang ABOVE OUR BED for Christmas. Um, no.  Not above my bed, or anywhere else in the apartment either, love. Just, no.  I think you win, though. Push comes to shove, I’d rather a mugshot than a photo of a man burning to death. Good luck with that!

We had a major discussion over a battle scence picture my husband had. No thank you, not over my fireplace, maybe in his office.  It was the Battle of Grunwald. (middle ages).

Oh my God! That’s a horrible photo to hang! That does make me feel better about the two video game posters Fiance has hung in his apartment, though :).

Hahahaha! That’s hilarious. Nothing says tasteful decor like a burning monk. 😛

My SO has mentioned several times that he’d like an entire room to work on “projects” and that he’d like it rustic/hunting themed. He wants to put his guns on racks as well. He mentioned that he’d like camo netting as well.

Since it’s only a two bedroom house, I don’t think grandma wants to sleep in the room with bambi stuffed on the wall. Unbelievably, we’ve had tons of debates over this!! It’s a ridiculous argument and he thinks people don’t need a guest bedroom.

HAHAH wow, chalk it up to being a guy. that’s the most ridiculous thing i’ve ever heard as far as decorating goes. i thought my husband’s decorating was lacking when he still had the college club photo collages hanging up.

In our medium green/dark sage nursery Darling Husband wanted to put up navy blue plaid curtains.

This cracked me up!! I can relate. Fiance bought a house last year. We won’t be living together until after our wedding, so that means he has pretty much free reign over the decor -for now. So there’s a HUGE Spiderman poster (FRAMED) in the master bathroom. It definitely won’t be there after May 14th!!

THankfully FH’s taste is similar to mine (simple, clean) but i did have an interesting experience at a guy-friends house. This friend has a huge, expensive house and i was sorta being nosey/using his master bathroom during a super bowl party and i almost peed myself b/c when i flipped on the bathroom light, there was a dead stuffed raccoon perched on the edge of the huge bathtub. It was creepy looking. And who puts a dead animal on the edge of their jacuzzi sized bathtub? Um what? lol

My SO has some pretty interesting design tastes as well.  Computer room decor?  Oh, a Patrick Stewart for Literacy and Libraries poster that says “Discover the feeling.  Learn to read.”  Patrick Stewart is currently holding a book of Shakespear, staring at me.  Just staring…

He did frame this poster, which I had to give him credit for.  But he does not understanding matting, it seems, because there is about an inch of cardboard all the way around.

Living room?  Creepy dragon type thing… looks sort of dragon-skeleton-ish, made from wood.  That he stole from a bar bathroom during his crazy college band days when a gig shorted the band.  And the thing creeps. me. out.
