Haha, I like how you said he’d figure out how great your ideas were later!  I do ask Darling Husband about the decor, but we both have an agreement that I know more about decor and that it’s my thing.  He’s allowed to veto things if they’re far fetched or he just really hates it though.

Darling Husband doesn’t really “get” decorating… So he gives me free reign as long as I’m not spending an arm and a leg. I really believe that guys can’t visualize an item or two in a catalogue actually IN your house. As long as the place has a good return policy, I say go for it!

We tend to talk about things before purchasing. If he explicitly did not like something I wouldn’t go ahead and purchase it though. If you really think it would work out and he will eventually warm to it I would at least convince him of that before just buying it.

We have similar tastes so most times he’ll just be like go ahead unless it’s something wild and far out there. 😀

ETA: I lurve West Elm! So expensive though. 🙁

We have similar tastes so we tend to agree on most house stuff. He doesn’t care about things like curtains though, so I have free reign to do what I want. If he really hates something though, I wouldn’t buy it.

I’m into very girly things, so I always make sure to ask my husband before buying. If I did it by myself, our house would look like a Laura Ashley store, all pink and flowers. I want him to feel comfortable in our home too, and I know he’s not a pink flowery kind of guy.

I usually give him options of things that I like. We just bought a new comforter, and I showed him two that I love. He picked the less girly of the two.
