Decorating Our Home Now that We Are Married
Maybe you missed the news, not sure, pero estoy casada ahorita ( but, I am married now). Married life is different but a magnificently good different. Of course, with marriage two becomes one in so many ways and the most apparent is in home life. Daniel and I are moving in together and buying a home together and I am worried. Not worried about us doing well living together--not at all. More so, about decorating!!!! How can I express two cultures appropriately in our home that will be our sacred space? How will I balance feminine and masculine details in our home? Can't overload my husband with pink and girlie things. After browsing through Pinterest, I finally nailed down the "look and feel" of our home.--BOHEMIAN CHIC.
Color, Color, Color matched with organic material like wood and a lot of texture is what I am going for. With Daniel being Mexican and I being black, we have endless options of expressing the richness of both of our cultures in our home. I also feel really good about adding more luxe details in light fixtures and accessories like vases for the plethora of house plants we'll have.
I know for sure when deciding on the color of the couch, he will not go for a wild pink. No bueno! But, I do think he'll be open to colors in the blue family like rich navy or even teal if I tone down other decors with neutrals. One other element is small quaint little sitting areas like ottomans and day beds. We have kids who want to just lounge around on their phones and even I like to lay around with a book. Maximizing the spaces to fit our lifestyle is super important for us but making sure it's pretty is even more important to me.
Newlyweds or married couples, how do you compromise on decor? Have any ideas or suggestions for us?
