    Yep everything has to match. If I get given a mug, I donate it to charity. If I get a 4 pack of mugs, I keep them but won't use them if there are more than 4 people having a hot drink. I bought 2 of my dinner set then MIL got the same one, then decided she didn't like it so I actually have 16x everything in my dinner set. All my timber furniture is the exact same shade.
    I don't match my bra with my undies though!

    I'd love to be fully matchy but my family does their own thing.

    I do always make sure that the sheets/pillows match in the individual beds.

    My ensuite has perfectly matching towels, bath mats and accessories. Then dh comes home and insists on using his daggy mismatched towel.

    The kids bathroom has again matching bath mats, towels etc but the kids refuse to use the new towels. Sigh.

    Fancy dinnerware is all Maxwell and Williams in white. I have 3x sets so we are good for dinner parties. I pull out the matching cutlery for that but we use random ones on a daily basis.

    Underwear. I used to always have my undies and bra match. Then I got pregnant and maternity stuff is boring.

    The furniture in our house is kinda matchy. The formal areas are perfectly coordinated as is our room and the guest room. The playroom is Ikea central and the kids have random assortment of stuff.

    Coffee cups are all random as we get so many as gifts.

    Def a matchy person. Everything from the colours in our house to accessories, towels etc are coordinated. My clothes and accessories are also coordinated when I dress as are the boys clothes. Uncoordinated and odd things bother me

    I like things co-ordinated. overly matchy matchy is really contrived and daggy looking. but I expected all my decor to adhere to one cohesive style. I'd never buy a matching TV unit and buffet/side board for instance, but the two items which I've purchased are of the same style and the overall look works.

    I'm definitely not one to sacrifice style for utility. the idea of opening up a cupboard and having a mish mash of unmatched cups and saucers and mugs drives me potty.

    Some things match and some don't. It doesn't bother me at all. Much bigger/more important things in life to put my time and energy into.

    We are very random in our house.
    I choose to say we have eclectic tastes!

    I confess that when I hang clothes on the line my pegs have to match. Absolutely frigging crazy. I can't hang out a shirt with one red one blue peg. They both have to be the same.

    I can't think of any other instance where I am so anal!
