You have the same problem as me! My hubby is very outdoorsy, and I am very…well…not. We had to mesh when we got married. A lot of our house is chocolate brown and tan because both match dead animals. ๐Ÿ™‚  I am also having a really hard time finding a duvet cover in light blue that’s not girlie.

I really like the Woolrich line at Target. http://www.target.com/b/ref=in_br_browse_box/601-4588220-5761719?ie=UTF8&node=14122231&frombrowse=1&rh=tgt%5F3%3AWoolrich it’s much better in stores however. It’s cabin-y but still cute, I think. Red might also work as well. Good luck and let me know how it goes!

The Woolrich stuff is great; Columbia also has a line of towels and bedding now too (at Fred Meyer here in the northwest – not sure where else) that is very nice.  The Columbia is less woodsy but still nice, rich but gender-neutral sorts of colors (eggplant, chocolate, burgundy, steel).  Our bedding is Ralph Lauren, and is actually a flowers and plants type pattern, but colors like the Columbia line (our extra sheets and our bathroom stuff is Columbia).

Mrshudson – try Target for the duvet.  I just saw some 450-ct sheets and duvet covers there the other day.  The pattern is a woven stripe, and they come in brown, sage, cream, and a sort of light grey-blue.  Very pretty, but not girly.  I bought a set for DH’s son’s room, as he is all about the blue.

We have found common ground with sage and browns – kind of the colors in camo, but not the pattern. We have a lot of oak leaf motifs ๐Ÿ˜‰ We also use brick red in a lot of things, and I keep all the walls a honey/butter color to lighten it up.

My advice is that if you are going to be living in this home then you should make sure you feel comfortable in it!  If any of the decor makes you uncomfortable you need to talk to him and let him know … I agree that you shouldnt change everything right away, but if there are sports figures all over the place and you’d like a flower here or there — go for it, just make sure you talk to him about it first. It’s a really important conversation to have — good luck and congrats!
