When we bought our first house together, my wife and I were so happy. We had been renting for years, and this was long overdue. We were excited because we were not allowed to do much at our rental home. I was looking forward to finally being able to have rooms in the colors that we prefer rather than someone else’s choice. My wife was also able to have a home office for the first time, and she was looking forward to decorating that too. I already knew that she wanted to paint it and put up wall stickers, and I was anxious to help her with it.
She chose a very soft pink color for the room color. While I painted, she got busy with buying curtains and the office furniture she would need.
