Marriage is symbiotic with cohabitation, and it’s inevitable that style preferences will clash. Yet, photographer Pat Martires and wife Peachy have found a way to settle their design differences and come up with a creative compromise.

A self-proclaimed DIY dude, Pat decided to do away with professional interior designers and architects and independently transformed his formerly purely masculine condo unit to accommodate Peachy’s more feminine style before they said their “I dos.” Their space is predominantly black and white, with chrome and steel interspersed with floral and vintage touches. The Martires home is indeed proof that opposites not only attract, but can also lead to a creative collaboration.
