How Do I Choose Color For My Home When He Likes One Thing and I Like Something Totally Different?

I have had several clients who start or restart their new lives together, but each has opposite tastes on the color wheel. How do you choose a color for the home when the people who live in it have very different styles?

People live under one roof but don’t always agree on the same things. Most of my clients settle on color choices for the home, and the husband, in most cases, says, “whatever she wants is fine with me.” They BOTH have their color input every now and then, and it makes for a challenging consult. How does this work?

A good designer always has backup plans, especially if it’s not their first rodeo. Since I’m a “person of insights” I rely heavily on body language and emotions of the people I’m choosing color for. It really tells a lot about a person and what they want or don’t want.

It’s essential to choose a color that they both like and a color that neither thought of. For example, let’s talk about the master bedroom. She wants green, and he wants blue. How do we fix this? We choose a color that nobody thought of, like a muted purple or a spicy orange. It’s important not to choose sides, so everyone feels like a winner. Adults can act like kids sometimes, and I find myself chucking but humor, sure does help out a lot.
