Blake Lively may be known for her impeccable fashion choices, but she says it's really her husband Ryan Reynolds who has an eye for style—especially when it comes to home décor.

 "I'm very lucky to be with someone who has better taste than me," she says in a new interview in the September 2013 issue of Lucky magazine. "We influence each other in different ways."

Influence? Yes. Dictate? Not so much.

"I was recently asked how my style has changed since I got married, as if I was living under some sort of dictatorship," she jokes. "I should hope I dress differently at 25 than I did when I graduated high school. I hope I never stop changing."

Although the couple worked together on the 2011 flick Green Lantern, she says movie-making doesn't compare to creating a home together. "With film and TV, you don't see the results for months. Building a home, you get immediate gratification."  

Not that the former Gossip Girl is completely done with decorating the couple's New York home. In fact, since marrying the R.I.P.D. actor last September, she's been spending her time amassing furniture, selecting flooring and fixtures, and hunting for rugs and side tables.

"Work is important, but my greatest passion is my personal life," the 25-year-old explains.

And while Blake may be retreating from appearances on red carpets to spend more time at Home Depot, that doesn't mean she doesn't like to have, what she refers to as, a "princess day" every once in a while.

"That could call for wearing something totally inappropriate," the blond bombshell explains. "Like a beaded purse and a gorgeous pair of crystal heels just to go to the grocery store."
