We have pretty similar styles, but maybe because he’s pretty indifferent.  He pretty much goes along with anything I like.  It makes things easy.  🙂

Thankfully yes!

He of course doesn’t care quite as much BUT we still always find a middle agreement of things we both like. Haven’t had to make a “full” compromise yet. *knock on wood*

He likes more contemporary looking things and I like more rustic or traditional things. He would definitely go for a more modern kitchen with unique twists and angles to it, whereas I want the more  Southern Living type of space with lots of hardwood floors and wrap around porches.


Ironically though, when it comes to personal style he is much more traditional and I am the trendy one… so we are all over the place!

We definitely have very similar styles. I noticed this from the beginning when we started dating, because my ex was sooo different from me (but also kind of indifferent). We both have a rustic style, although I prefer more of an eclectic style and he kinda bugs me with his “themes” for each room…it’s kinda fun though!

I have such a variety of styles I like. I enjoy the exteriors of tudors but love the interiors of modern homes. I too like color but only pops or in certain rooms with an overriding monochromatic tone (grayscale).

My SO rarely talks to me about his home style and I have picked out 95% of the stuff in our apartment, he hates my monochromatic style and like bright bold colors everywhere.

We both like the contemporary minimalist aesthetic.  Like a lot of the clean, modern looking stuff from Ikea and CB2

We have somewhat similar styles. I have definitely convinced him that my way is better! LOL

We have different styles, for sure. But there are places where our styles intersect, and we try to capitalize on those intersections as much as possible. when it comes to home design we use the same approach that worked for us during wedding planning. I do all of the legwork to come up with inspiration and options (because it’s fun to me!), I narrow it down to 3 options that I am fond of, and then Mr. LK picks his favorite of the 3 options. Mr. LK is free to reject all 3 options, at which time it becomes his responsibility to find new inspiration and options, which we will discuss. Let’s just say that he VERY rarely rejects my options. 😉
