Our Style (alternate title: Wait...You Like THAT?!)

Have I ever told you that Mike and I have two totally different styles?  This became glaringly obvious one day while we were at The Peddler's Mall, and we each spotted a (different) piece of furniture that we liked in a booth.  Here's a glimpse into what our house would look like:

Because we disagree so much on what the house should look like, we've let the style of each room fall by the wayside.  We can agree on basics, like a couch or bedroom furniture, but we have yet to commit to a bedspread, curtains, artwork, pillows, etc.  We both wanted to include some artwork in Liam's room, but couldn't seem to agree on what it should look like -- he has some abstract art that a former student made, and I think it clashes horribly with the rest of the room.  I have a list of cute things I found on Etsy...he's not sold on any of them.  We're still debating what mirror to hang above his changing table...I want a plain one that I can hang a matching banner on...he wants something fun and whimsical.  You guessed it...his room currently contains no artwork and no mirror.

Granted, if this is our biggest point of contention, then we're incredibly fortunate.  But I see all sorts of cute spaces, and it just makes me wish that we could agree on something.

Too funny! I was laughing just at the post title. :-) Here's hoping you guys find the perfect things to agree upon.

ha! i dont even agree with myself on style sometimes so i cant imagine agreeing with someone else!!! (btw, love the mirror over the changing table idea!! the babe will LOVE that!... and just some small advice... i had some toys hanging over the changing table and it really helped with her learning to reach for things when she was little!)

Sounds like me and my boyfriend, although some mixes of styles do work good together.

Made me giggle!!!
