I even showed him the start of this board below and asked his opinion...I was just pairing things together with "guy" in mind.
He liked what I expected he would like, the wide stripe and the textured blue/beige blend fabric. You just never know - every person is so different with their preferences and opinions, which is why some of the pairings are quite unexpected but that's what makes design fun.
Have you had many male clients? Do you have any male clients in your own home with strong opinions or are they give or take? I'd like to think that guys get a small say in design decisions when it comes to the home, but I'm pretty sure it would probably be 80/20, maybe even 90/10? What do you think? Can you tell this topic has been on my mind recently?
