I might be generalizing, but it’s often assumed that design decisions at home will be taken by the lady. However, what happens when your spouse has an opinion too? My wife and I had our first argument at an upholstery shop while choosing curtains. She had a sense of aesthetics that clashed with mine – I argued that I have a degree in design studies. Wrong move! While we got past the curtains, it took us 4 years to decide on personalized stationery – thank you cards. We have come to an understanding now, but I’d love to know how you and your spouse deal with such situations. Is there a gender role at play or a compromise of a sort?
