Matrimonial Design Clash

Dear Expert: My husband’s ideas and my ideas for our new home vary quite a bit. How do we agree on a design?

A: There seems to be a misconception that you have to choose a style or type of home and stick with it.  Architects can help homeowners focus on priorities, balance their choices in materials and design to keep it affordable, and think in new and different ways. A traditional farmhouse can have a contemporary feel, for example. Architects are experts in melding styles and ideas to create a cohesive, unique home that all can enjoy.
