Who does most of the home decorating, men or women?

Hi, can anybody tell me whether they think that it's the men or women of the household that do most of the painting and decorating at home?
Any thoughts or opinions would be great,

my wife has a much bigger brush set than me - hairbrush, toothbrush, dustpan-and-brush.... unfortunately the closest she has to a paintbrush is the one she uses to paint her nails.

Its about 70/30 in our house... I do more because I'm at home with our daughter while my husband is working most days.

my sister does it all in her house and my dad does it all in their house.

I guess it depends who has a head for DIY.

I think it really depends on who's the more artistic ones. In our case, I do all the planning and the researching [url=http://www.schoolofinteriordesign.org/interior-design-ideas/2.html]interior design ideas[/url] while my wife does the execution and the decorating. It terms of painting, I do that with my kids.[/url]
