Clean neutrals

via design sponge I've been putting a lot of thought into how our home will look when Ry and I move in together at the end of the month. You guys know my taste, but Ryan definitely isn't one of those roll-over-and-give-up kind of guys when it comes to decorating. He has his own taste, sort of midcentury modern eco chic. Clean lines, concert posters lovingly framed, natural materials. And of course we'll have to find a way for his video games and my decorative objects to coexist.

For my inspiration, I've been taking a good long look at this apartment featured on design*sponge. Clean, neutrals, still decorated, but in a simple loving way.

How do you and your partner mesh styles? Do you have final say? Or does he have an opinion about that ikat chair?
