Working with Mom; My Most Challenging Client

When people ask me about clients that I’ve found challenging my Mom is the first person who come to mind. I love her, but for most of our lives the expert balance has been tipped in her favor (she really did know better than me when I was 16, but don’t tell her that). So now that I have acquired knowledge in an area outside of her expertise I think it’s hard for her to trust that I’m right. When I answer her decorating questions, she always gets a second opinion to test if I’m right. She was shocked when she went into her local Benjamin Moore store and they repeated the same advice I had given her!

Now she is redecorating her bedroom and has asked for my advice. I advised her to go shopping for some inspirational bedding. When re-designing your bedroom, it’s always best to start with the bedding. It’s easier to match the thousands of paint colours to your bedding than it is to choose a paint colour and then force it to work with the linen options in the stores. Trust me, I’ve tried!

Happy Shopping Mom!
