Bedroom Update Help!
Maggie Hadden
July 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My husband and I are having a very difficult time agreeing on a new look for our bedroom. I like a more traditional look, while he is very into all things contemporary . What are some ways to combine the two styles, without it looking...well odd? I've never been much of an interior designer and have no eye for what goes with what.

Maybe you could each start an ideabook, add photos and see if you overlap on what you like. I used to joke that my house would be grey, black and chrome if my husband had his way, but he actually tends to like the more eclectic rooms I show him. One way we have married our styles so to speak is to mix more contemporary or modern furniture (clean lines) with more interesting accent pieces like antique mirrors or rugs.

You may also want to search the ideabooks for transitional style (a mix of modern and traditional) and see if you find some rooms you both like.
