You share your home with your husband, Joe. How did you combine your personal aesthetics and tastes to create a space you both love?
It’s an ongoing process, but our collaborative effort stems from respecting one another’s needs. When you live in a small home, that’s the only way to survive! Mostly, I’m careful to consider Joe’s comfort level . . . I want to make sure home feels like home. We try not to compromise comfort for aesthetics, though I’m not sure Joe agrees with this. I’m not one for feminine color palettes or florals, so the transition hasn’t been terribly hard. Joe is still learning the virtues of decor accents, and I am learning the virtues of an oversized sofa.
