Congratulations! That magical 4-word, relationship altering question has been asked. No, “Will you marry me” isn’t what we’re referencing, although that’s no doubt the holy grail of initiatives. “Want to move in?” is what’s on our mind, which is a step that we can all agree is equal parts exciting and nerve wrecking. 

With cohabitation involving the combination of your lives & stuff, it’s no wonder why those nerves are front and center. Big decisions are at stake. Does he really need that old collection of baseball cards? Exactly how many shoes do you have? Will he give up his bachelor pad, and will you give up your dream of hot pink walls? It’s time to find common ground and decide on decor that fits both of your styles.

To begin, we have a few pieces of decor advice that are great places to start. Focus on neutral colors, but play with patterns and textures to give the room a comfortable ‘lived-in’ feeling. Bring in pops of color, but skip out on the overly feminine patterns. If you can’t totally ditch florals or leopard, try to find versions in subdued colors or balance it out with some darker colors to fit his style. Try mixing in a few industrial pieces for a touch of masculinity, too!

Wondering how these little tips are practically applied? We’ve got a fabulous round up to start you on your cohabitation adventure. These 9 stunning bedrooms totally nail the mix of his and hers style.

I found the hardest part of moving in with my husband 1 yr ago was meshing our styles together. I am the bright, colorful, Lilly wearing southern girl while he from France favoring moody blues, blacks, and shades of gray. It became fun finding a way to mesh pattern/color together while also appealing to both of our styles. You have some awesome examples here that will definitely help keep my creative juices flowing when we move this fall! I think he will loveeee the room with the navy wall and the one with the black geometric design carpet. Spot on!

Happy Designing!
