Couples Blending Two Homes Into One
Dated: May 16 2016
For couples setting up a new home together, it's a challenge. How to merge two sets of stuff and two decorating styles into one space they both love.
Emotions get really high when it comes to your belongings if the person you're choosing to spend the rest of your life with doesn't love what you love.
In our increasingly design-savvy world, many people come to coupledom with a clear idea of how their home should look.
Most of us just don't have room for two full households together. You have to make choices.
Each person probably has a few treasured pieces of furniture or art that he or she can't live without. Partners should agree to keep perhaps three or four pieces in their shared home.
There are no two styles that can't be combined to some degree.
Buying a few new pieces together can tie a couple's shared decor and help both partners feel at home. This includes accessories and artwork.
And if they really can't reach agreement, no shame in selling your furniture and going out together and buying new pieces as a couple.
