@izziebear: I think a lot of guys just think they don’t care as much about design or are overwhelmed by the task…but when it actually comes to picking things out and spending money, they start to have an opinion!  For your situation, I think I’d start picking out things, maybe show him pics online of paintings/frames/decor.  Ask him do like item A or item B, so he gets to give his opinion, and not be overwhelmed by choice.  It sounds like you’re going to have to take the initiative, but that’s not a bad thing!

LOL good luck.. i think you should just give up and do whatever you want to the place.  Think of it this way, you have free reign to do whatever you want!!  Fiance and I just moved in together into our first house a few months ago and he has no interest in decorating or furniture or anything.  He thinks its fine the way it is and we dont need anything else.  He only has hand me down awful stuff from college, and I came with nothing.  It’s driving me nuts, and he’s perfectly fine with bare walls, no window treatments, an empty living room, empty dining room, not a single bookshelf or shelving of any kind…you get the idea. Most guys just don’t seem to care or notice these things… I feel your pain.
