They say opposites attract, but we bet you can name at least a few major things you and your significant other share in common. For starters, you probably moved beyond the first date because you both love doing certain things together. If you live in the same apartment, this similarity is even more obvious. On nights when you order Chinese take-out, what's the one hobby that you both bond over?
That might be the key to choosing decor items you both love. Compromise works perfectly well when it comes to choosing what to keep and what to toss but purchasing new items can be trickier. When choosing new decor objects, think outside the box and reach for fun accents that show off your personalities. Do you both love math? Typography? Animals? Here are a few unique, standout accents that you can both agree on:

Your friends might not understand, but you two will.

You will have solved at least one decor dilemma: now you both agree on what your dishes should look like.
Music has the power to bring together huge crowds of strangers and the effect is no less strong when it comes to uniting couples. For the especially music-savvy lovebirds, these items are essential. Why have a normal storage bin or paperweight when you can buy one that shows your love of good tunes?
