  • No to me that's just too much of one thing.

  • When the towels are hung up, they need to match. Silverware needs to match otherwise it looks like a tacky hodge podge. I have 2 sets of dishes that I don't mind mixing and matching, so I'm not that bad I guess.

  • I like everything to coordinate (same styles), but nothing actually matches.

  • Yes, they have to match.

  • Stuff has to match! Has to! My kitchen is blue, silver, and black. All my dishes and whatnot are dark blue, the sapphire collection from avon. Appliances and fixtures are black & silver, and all my towels and dishcloths are blue. I was even going to paint the walls sapphire blue...but it wound up looking too dark against the cabinets, so I have to figure something else out.

    I'm in the process of redoing our bathroom because since we got a new king size bed and new bedding, the color scheme in the bathroom no longer matches the bedroom! LOL. Yes, I'm a bit OCD. I was surprised my hubby even agreed with me...I was like..."Really? I didn't think you'd care." he says "Well...I really just want new towels. I don't like my towels anymore." LOL.

  • It would be an Act of God if everything I had matched ...

  • Oh good Lord no. If all my stuff had 2 match I wouldn't have anything. I have somethings that match but most of its a mix. I luv it!

  • I have matching dishes, silverware and glasses. But I also have extra cups and dishes that I've collected.

    My bath towels don't match, just a collection of towels that we've gotten over the years. but if we're ever able to afford it, I totally want to replace all of my towels with matching sets.
