    presort your faves, and give him only three choices at one time. "this one, this one, or this one" will be easier for him than "ochre or mustard or earth clay? or maybe mint or seagrass or blue clover? or MAYBE ecru or eggshell or cream?" just 3.

    more work for you but less agony

    I do it all the time and he says.... whatever I don't care.... and then he gives his opinion once he sees it completely done....

    maybe ask him to decide on just one thing a day? he's probably overwhelmed if you're asking him stuff all the time.

    or maybe he has a hard time picturing how all the pieces will come together? i don't know, maybe organize swatches together on a sort of 'inspiration board' (jesus) so he gets a feel for how various looks might ultimately work. pictures etc.

    or, hire a designer, they know how to elicit decisions.

    (i'm so glad i don't have to do that sort of thing anymore; i've just gone for ecru & asked NO ONE :happy: Not advocating murder, at all, btw, or even divorce)

    I think we are married to the same man!! Mine says the exact same thing! He finally just said, he doesnt like making decision, and I can do whatever I want, he will complain either way. Geeeeez!

    So, now I say, no opinion, no complaints.

    i think we all married the same guy! mine also answers a question with another one.

    i say paint it pink... he'll have an opinion then :-)

    So, what I hear you saying is, you don't want to appreciate his opinion and you clearly have two different tastes in decor, so whatever he says you're not going to like. So, by saying, "whatever, don't care" he's actually saying, "Oh good grief woman, stop asking me questions, that, if I answer the way I want you'll tell me I'm wrong and want to 'discuss' why its wrong..so whatever, don't care is easier."

    sounds like he's like a lot of men and just likes big things. a big painting, a big tv, whatever. you never hear of a guy really digging his heels in for a vase.

    What if he worded it differently and said, "Oh my love, I don't mind. You choose. I want you to be happy and you have such a great eye for this kind of thing. I'll just let you know if I really object, but otherwise I love your choices!"

    Would that be better? Cuz that's probably what he means.

    Or he means he REALLY doesn't care at all what the inside of his house looks like. It's probably somewhere in between... more like, "Yeah mostly I don't care as long as my house kinda looks as presentable as every other house with a recent remodel. I'm sure you can make pretty decent decisions, after all, you married me, right?"

    Sounds about like my husband. His answer to just about everything is "I don't care." or "Whatever you want." then I get what I want and he complains about it.

    "But I don't want to eat this." Well, then you should of told me what you wanted when I asked instead of saying you don't care. :grumble:

    hubbies just dont care. when he says he doesnt like it when you put it up, then tell him "not my problem, i asked you." if he cares for you he would stop complaining. if not, get rid of him :glasses: :glasses: :smokin: :smokin: :grumble:

    My ex ALWAYS had opinions about décor. SO. MANY. OPINIONS! And feelings, too. I was the one that was all, "Oh man, just pick a sofa. Honestly, as long as it's long enough for me to lie down on, I'm good. Oh, maybe we should get a yellow one so the dog hair won't show...?" *lol* So, just a note to say that SOME men do care. Like, WAY too much. ;)
