I love my architect, but we generally have a difference in opinion when it comes to finish out. We always seem to be on the opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to selecting colors, fixtures, tile, etc. He always acquiesces to my choices (um, I pay the bills so it's not like he has much choice), but I always get the feeling that he's thinking, "that's not what I would have done." Which, really, is fine, since a lot of his finish out choices I would have not done -- we just have different tastes. Mine being superior, of course ;-) It's ironic because we completely see eye to eye on actual house design, and I love his work in that respect.
Well, I just got an email from him. His company has an upcoming project, and they wanted me to consult on color selection, and if I'm interested, selection of fixtures, etc. as well. And they'll compensate me for my time!
Seriously, I'll do it for free if I can hear, "Why, yes, Vy, you're right! That is the perfect color!"
