If you and your sweetheart can't agree on a design scheme for your home, you're not alone. Venus and Mars rarely have the same tastes when it comes to decorating. Women love color, men prefer white or beige. Men have to have a comfortable chair, even if it looks horrible. Women are willing to forgo function for form. But there are ways to compromise.
Number one is to talk about expectations for a room, how it will be used and who will use it more. Look through magazines and see what catches your eye, then see how your sweetie responds to the same photos. If all else fails, learn to say "okay honey, whatever you think is best" and save disagreements for another topic!
