Battle Of The Styles’

It’s known around these parts that Mr. Styles and I often battle over style. Be it interior, or clothing. I will give it to him…he has a great eye for clothing, and decorating. His love for all things old is not my style though. Don’t get me wrong. I love his ideas, and the things he brings home to work on. But my style is just a bit different. But he wants to move us to a farm so go figure. He loves everything old with meaning, and The OU Sooners. Also old door handles, doors, tins, signs, jars, period items that tell a story…things like that. If we go shopping, I would want to go to the mall. He would rather go to “Thrifty” or Lula B’s as seen here on his last trip. I have to turn something's down, because he gets to excited with project ideas. Its fun though. I enjoy the battle, and the laugh that we have over it. We even put our kids in the mix, and let them judge. Never a dull moment, but good fun over design. I love it.
He has a room that he is working on, and I have given him freewill to do his thing (he will probably laugh at this statement). No TAMARA involved at all in this space. It has been emptied, and ready to go.
Stay tuned for what he is doing, and a video shortly.
(NO NEED TO BE ALARMED. NO ONE WAS HARMED DURING THE TAKING OF THESE PHOTOS)

The Sister Sophisticate said...

That is adorable! I gave my husband the exterior and I have the interior. Both of us are stubborn because we do make sure the other hears our opinions whether its interior or exterior. I wish I could say all of our disagreements end like that.

That is so great! My husband has a passion for things with history too, specifically antique pulleys (which have become the bane of my existence...). I grin and bear it because it makes him so happy, I only laid down the law when he wanted to create some sort of elaborate light fixture using them for the dining room- ha!

The Rich Ant said...

Hey Tam I love the pics, you guys are a beautiful couple. But I was wondering something. Sounds to me like your husband's style is pretty cool. I think and eclectic mix of both of you all's style would be so neat and interesting. I see it over on AT a lot. I can't wait to see what he does with the room but I would most definitely love to see you guys collaborate the old with new on a room together one day. Anyway keep up the great work.
Peace and Blessings

Im guessing he's decorating his man cave. Still you is brave. If I let my hubby do the same I would come home to disaster.

Nuha said...

you are so cute!!!! And I couldn't help but laugh, your husband reminds me of myself! I'm overly ambitious when it comes to thrift stores. Anything old always has such character! But I've somehow given my husband full reign that one day when we buy a house the garage and playroom are his...all his. Whoops!
