While summer television is le suck, I have turned to my other obsession and have been house focused lately. We are in the home stretch with only one room left to renovate and 100 little projects to complete. We just did another purge of unwanted items and "stuff" is finding a place to rest. I can't help but notice how divided by sex our items are.
For instance, in one corner of the mud room, there is a pair of girly rubber boots coordinated next to a chair with a box full of rainbow colored hats and mittens.
In the other corner is a collection of vintage climbing gear next to a bin of mud toned hats and black gloves.
I like to cut fresh flowers to have around the house.
My husband likes to hang sharp, scary "objets de art".
I'd like to think that our books are separated by topic, rather than by his and hers.
Perhaps the outdoor guide book shelf is more unisex, since my use of that shelf is frequented more so than Drew's use of the pottery reference books.
We share the bed together, but I'm always on the left and he's on the right. Our clothes hang together in the closet, but on opposite sides. We use the same roll of toilet paper, soap in the shower and don't have assigned mugs in the morning, so we're not all that separate. I'd like to think of us as a well balanced team that lives well together and yes, loves each other too.
Okay, enough of the OCD talk, does anyone else have an imaginary line of separate but equal happening in your home too?
