Everyone has one. A husband who really wants to be involved in decorating your home. Whether it's for functional (I wants me a Lazyboy, honey) or recreational (I like silver...A LOT!) purposes, men can create havoc for our retro modern living rooms or french country bedrooms. In which case, it might be time to get creative.
Anthony likes dining room chairs with "arms" (help me, please). He also likes reclining everything. He also likes glass... Lots and lots of glass. Hi, Husband, I'm your SUPER clumsy wife, have we met? At this point, we agree on very little. Except maybe, price. It's a battlefield in our home threatening my clean minimalist approach for the living room. I haven't decided on the kitchen, but tacky 70's furniture is definitely out. I really wanted to go for a Gastro-Pub motif, but I am not so sure that's going to happen. What does a woman have to do to get her way these days?
Does equal opportunity mean equal decorating opportunity? Because if so? I, for one will personally accept an apron and bake from scratch to have my decorating dictatorship restored. However, I completely and totally support other women's right to choose the marital path that works for them. Dirty old recliners have no place in my home. Money is better spent on a Dyson in my opinion.
For now, my tactics are pretty clear. Buy as much furniture I can without the husband present then shower him with affection so he's sees that my happiness is his happiness. Should ugly furniture come through my door, he'll see what an angry wife gets him. Of course being the rational person I am, I will accept his ugly piece of errant furniture because I am a good person. Then, when he's at work, I will paint or reupholster it to fit my interior design WILL! Ha!
