Someone just commented on an old post that they let their husband pick out the fabric for their couch.
I was just thinking about a husband’s role in decorating the house.
Some husbands, like mine, DONT GIVE A CRAP.
I basically have three rules when buying things for the house:
1. Dont spend a lot of money.
2. Dont bother me.
3. The piece has to function properly.
But, I know some people whose husband’s are super involved in all the decisions. Sometimes they care more than the wife does! Admitedly, there are a blessed few husbands who have great taste… But if I left decor up to my husband we would be sitting in 2 Lazy-boys in front of a 60″ plasma, you know, the ones with the cup holders and beer fridge built in?
I actually WANTED my husband to come with me to sit on couches, since it does directly impact his comfort, but he said he trusted me.
I’ve also learned that taking him to a furniture store could be the fastest way into divorce court.
So how bout you?
Does your husband a) care about decor, b) bother you about what you do, or c) does he beg to be left out of it – like mine?
