  • I gave up on the rest of my house and centered my attention on my bathroom. I threw my DH in with the boys, so they can have a boys only bathroom. My bathroom is now white and pink and very feminine, they all refuse to go near it, YES, just as I planned. It's the one room in the house where I can escape the testosterone

  • My DH is the interior decorator in our He has a superb eye & decorates our house much better than i ever could. I always tell DH that he should have went to school for either interior decorating, or fashion design because he has a wonderful eye for both. I manly of him..LOL! He is actually very masculine despite his good fashion/design taste. He just has an eye for beauty & from what i understand, that is typical of Libra men.

  • nope, he honestly doesn't care. As long as its clean and not super girly, he's good.

  • my DH has his shop next door, and that's where he takes all his '(man (stupid) stuff'...LOL Seriously, he's got these 4ft speakers in the office because he can't part with them--they must be 25yrs old! He loves the our home, and I have a pink/white flowery bathroom, too! Doesn't keep anyone out, though. He has actually picked out our bedroom and living room furniture, and I love it! But, I do all the rest of the decorating.

  • The man has got to have a place that he feels comfortable with. I would not go and try to change it without consulting him, for that would be disrespectful to him. If you have the rest of the house done your way, it would not hurt to let him have his way in this one thing.

  • I have a very basic taste. Simple and comfortable. As does my husband, so we don't really have much to battle on as far as style. The only room that is completely his say is the garage. That is his "Man Den" and he can have that any way that he wants. My room is our laundry room, which is also my craft room. However, we still ask for one another's imput and discuss things. We haven't come to anything where we're like "NOOO! DON'T TOUCH!" .. Yet.

  • I get to decorate the house how I want...BUT I want my DH's thoughts and input and he doesn't really ever say anything. I don't really like the pinks and flowers so i don't know what he would say. I like earth tones or very right colors just depends on the day...our bathroom is almost neon orange but EVERYONE loves it!. We have yet to disagree on our home improvements =o)

  • NOPE!! I have complete run of our house! He has a "man cave" and our children have a "boy cave" in the basement. They are all very happy down there, and I get to keep the rest of my house spotless and clutter free--the way I like it!! :o)

    However, my husband likes my decorating style...traditional with colonial style accents....nice but not overly feminine.

  • He has a study which I am not allowed to do anything in except vacuum. Any of his books and papers left anywhere else in the house are also ' untouchable ' and it is no good my complaining as he says a room without books is like a day without sunshine.
