Communicating Design Ideas to Men

When prepping to paint the living room, IĀ  was inspired to try a new way of communicating my ideas to Ryan.

It worked.

He said yes.

Great success.

    That is so cute. If I’m going to explain something to my husband, I have to ask about one thing at a time (paint color, then each piece of furniture or art placement separately) AND I have to have an exact example of what I’m thinking. Visualizing is not his thing at all. Unless he hates something, though, I typically get free reign šŸ™‚

      That is EXACTLY how Ryan is, too! I kept asking questions about art, and
      he’d say “let’s wait until we paint, so I can see how things will look.”
      Mood boards work well with him – even though he’s mocked the idea of a “mood
      board” once or twice. šŸ™‚
