Wedding Wednesday - Mixing Styles

Let's talk about mixing decorating styles. Kacey and I got the townhouse we applied for! We don't currently live together, I know it's pretty rare these days but what can I say - we're old school. I absolutely can't wait to move out of an apartment (and away from my stupid downstairs neighbors) and into our new place, but we have a slight problem. See my decorating style is like this:


And Kacey's style is this:


So, uh what do we do? I don't fancy living in a log cabin (unless it was an actual cabin up north in the woods, but our town house is in the middle of a suburb) and Kacey doesn't want to live in a world of pastels. So for those of you who live with husbands/boyfriends/fiances how do you balance masculine and feminine decorating styles? I don't mind having rustic bones of a room, as long as all the cushions/blankets/textiles are pretty and fluffy and cozy. I've been looking at Scandinavian interiors, I feel like they have a nice minimalistic masculine vibe with some quirky and feminine touches without being overly girly. Any advice on how to make sure we don't end up in either a bachelor pad or a pretty pretty princess palace?

  1. You could have rustic wood furniture and accessorize it with pretty pastels and sparkly things...
