How to decorate your space when living with the in-laws?

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Oh I can see some of you cringing through the screen...others saying, what's the big deal? I lived this people and well..emotions can run high at times. Now can a little decorating solve all potential bollywood in law drama? Not a chance. But it sure can lift your spirits and change your focus. So a few tips from me for those folks living in this type of temporary (or maybe forever) situation. Over at masalamommas.com.
Surround your space with things your love - you know, to help with the days when you can't handle staring at your MIL's silk flowers anymore. One of my favourite curated corners by Emily Henderson Design.

oh, I've lived this! I decorated all common spaces the way I wanted to (because it was my house). And they were free to do whatever with their personal spaces.

I did have to close my mind to all comments on my taste. But I have to do that with my own mom, so it was not that bad :)

I think it gets messy when home ownership is shared. In my case it was easy. My house, my rules. So I had it (relatively) easy. Ha!

PS> also helps when husband shares your taste. Makes decorating a no brainer.

Silk flowers!?? HILARIOUS! Reminds me of my friend.. Want to know what her MIL has all over the walls in her living room? Team photos from a soccer team her husband played on in HS.So.. mostly pictures of other teenage boys. So weird.. But that's her decor.. Oy!

The story of my life! Thanks for posting this - interesting how this is not discussed more often, given how many people in India live with their in-laws.
