Have an open conversation about the best style that defines you as a couple. Are you modern, industrial, contemporary, romantic, traditional, or bohemian, to name a few? Does your interior design style conflict with your partners?
You can decide on one style that you feel best exemplifies who you are as a couple or you can attempt to mesh your two styles. Based on your decision, decide which colors and material elements you want to include in your design.
Be careful not to clutter your new space with unnecessary pieces. In addition, be sure to purchase a few items as a couple so that you will have an eclectic mix of his, your, and our items in your home design.
