His and Hers

When we first married, my decorating style was rustic country. Billy's was ornate traditional. Those two styles don't mix very well. Consequently, our decorating style became--nothing.

I think after 8 years we are finally coming up with things that work for both of us in our house. My style has grown a bit more sophisticated and neutral, and he has graciously conceded on a few points (like my great distaste for the color gold).

In our new kitchen we have almost no wall space, but next to the new bulletin board I hung our his and hers aprons. Mine is a cute retro half apron my sister made me. His (if you can't tell) is an LSU chef's apron. It represents us both, and says "our kitchen."

I just realized that his has purple and gold. Pretty funny! But in this context I am OK with it.

Show and Tell Friday hosted by Kelli.

(I have another show and tell at my craft blog!)

That must have been a difficult decorating dilemma!! There is some kind of show on HGTV that helps couples in that kind of fix, ha! I love aprons--like the cherries on yours, not saying much about HIS lol!

It's called compromise. What a good marriage is made of :o)

Thank you visiting me today and leaving a comment.

I enjoyed seeing your show and tell for today. I'm with you in that I don't like the color gold either. Just a little like is on his apron is okay with me but not bold gold color.
