Contrasting Home Design

An image from my wife's pintrest versus my pintrest

Its tricky combining different tastes in home and interior design. My wife likes a more contemporary and ornate look. I really like a clean modern look. She likes dark hardwood to give a warm feeling. I like concrete floors. There's going to be a lot of give and take for what we both like during the design of the laneway house. It's going to take longer to combine our visions but at the end the laneway house will be something that we both gave a great deal of time to consider all the details. 

I really wanted our laneway house to have a flat roof and a modern design. My wife wanted something with a gable roof and a more contemporary look. At the end we got a flat / shed roof combination. Which we both loved. Still a more modern take but I assured her that our choices in cladding (which hasn't been finalized yet) will be more rustic then sterile. 

Another part of the project I was pretty sure on was the back splash. I knew I wanted a clean glass back splash but Shima our interior designer recommended an over shaped tile instead to bring our my wife's taste in the kitchen. At the end I don't think this would have been something that me or my wife would have thought of but we both loved the idea of it. 
We still have a lot more decisions to make, the house isn't what me or my wife envisioned but it's going to be a good meld of our two styles.
