Does Sex Matter?

Yes it does!  Men and women look at home remodeling and even choosing paint colors from two very different places. Men are usually concerned more with the general structure and practicality of the space, while women are more in line with how the space will feel emotionally. In addition women are more vocal about how they want the space to look from the color stand point.

I have a general rule that in one of the very first design meetings I meet with both the husband and wife at the same time.  It's of course important for me to hear what both want and how they visualize the project space. But really the more important result is in them hearing each other describe what the other wants.  

In a casual setting, over the dining room or kitchen table clients will open up to me and it really gets the ball rolling in a productive way. In the end the process produces a home that both husband and wife feel proud of and connected to.
