That doesn’t sound fun.  Maybe you could work out a compromise with a trial period?  You get  to bring in the pieces of your furniture and art that you want, and have it up for 1 month.  Set a date to talk about it after the time limit, and anything he absolutly hates goes (with the understanding that the two of you will pick a new piece together to replace it), and the other things can stay.  Some people just aren’t good at visualizing things and need to actually see it.  (I had a boss like this.  We did event design and she just couldn’t picture a space without actually moving around tables chairs etc. It took twice as long to set up a space and drove me crazy because I would look at the area when we first saw it and say we should do it like _____.  Three hours of moving shit around later she would go “Oh you were right lets do it that way”. SOOOO aggrevating!)

If he likes it when you just do things without discussing it with him, then do that. 

When we combined our households, we pretty evenly kept pieces from what each of us owned. So we kept his sofa and recliner, but brought in one of my chairs, coffee table and antique parlor table that had been my grandmother’s. We kept his table lamps, but added two of my floor lamps. Darling Husband didn’t have any artwork, so we bought some and used some of mine.  

Since then we have replaced the sofa and recliner. Slowly it is startling to look less like a bachelor pad and more like a home.
