FAQ’s & What Your Man Wants

FAQ’s & What Your Man Wants

Just a little housekeeping blurb today…

I’m working on a couple of new posts, and I need your help.

The first one is about questions.  The first time I went to a blogger’s conference, I noticed there were a few sessions on emails and how to keep up with them.  I thought it was a little silly and not near as stressful as it was being made to sound until recently.

Here’s the thing, I LOVE reading your questions and answering them.  I read every one (eventually, ha), and I really enjoy the interaction with my readers.  I also really appreciate when people take the time to make comments on something I have written, and I try to answer every one.  But this takes so much time.  So. much. time.  I don’t want to stop answering emails  or questions or comments, but I’m wondering if a FAQ page on my site will cut down on some of this.  Therefore, I am constructing one, and was wondering if you had any thoughts or questions you had always wondered about, but never asked me.  I have a good list of FAQ’s going, but I thought it might be fun to send out a query for questions, silly or serious.  You can ask me anything!  Feel free to leave them in the comments or email them to submissions@astoriedstyle.com.

The second order of business is another post I’m writing on “elements your man wants in a room or for home decor and how to deal with it”.

Like this.


Look how happy these people are?!  This could be YOU!  Sipping your lemon water from the cupholder (who needs side tables anyway?!) of your overstuffed, bonded leather, double seater throne.  What better way to catch up on Elle Decor?

So…send me your questions and let me know what your man wants that you’re not sure how to deal with.  Again, you can leave this info in the comments or email it to me at submissions@astoriedstyle.com.

Have a great weekend!

    My husband really wants surround sound, but I don’t want the room to be full of wires and white boxes.

    I’ve recently stumbled upon your blog, and have really enjoyed reading your posts every morning. I absolutely love your home/decorating style. Not sure if this is an “FAQ” technically but I would love to see the rest of your house (even if not fully decorated) just to have an idea of what’s to come! Maybe a “house tour” link at the top of your blog?

      Jaime, thank you so much! I’m so happy you found the blog and enjoy reading! Yes, I have toyed with the idea of a Home Tour because I actually get this request a lot! I am working on it, and I so appreciate you taking the time to comment! G

    That is EXACTLY what my husband wants. Haha. Over my dead body! But it is his home too so I will definitely find a compromise…just not that!

    What about the furniture arrangement? As in, everything is turned toward the tv, forget the window or the fireplace?

      Melissa, so interesting! I have not thought about this, but I will add it! Thank you! G
