It’s Just Bedding Right?

Andy and I have been married for a little over three years now, and for the most part, we have our life rhythm down. We have a budget and a mortgage, you know the big grown up stuff, but we still occasionally get tripped up on the silly smaller stuff. Our master bed room for instance is still undecorated. We painted when we moved in and purchased some really beautiful bedroom furniture, but for the most part, we’re exactly where we were a week after we closed on the house. This all came up again right around the holidays because we were looking at a house full of people and I wanted to be able to show them our entire house. Long story short, it didn’t happen, but the itch to decorate reignited when I saw these gorgeous bedding sets from the Zara spring collection.

I love them so much. They are colorful and oh so pretty, but not super masculine. Daisies don’t exactly scream “rugged and manly”. So my question to you other married folks out there is this: How do you find that happy middle when you have two very conflicting aesthetics? I know Andy would let me do whatever I wanted if I made a big deal out of it, but I want him to feel at home in our home. First world problems, right?
