I agree. DW and I typically do research and know the 'look' that we want for furniture and home decorations.
Once we were looking for a piece for a room for several months. Wandering through a Hobby Lobby while DW was buying her craft stuff, I happened to wander by the perfect piece. I went to DW and told her I'd found the right one. She was sceptical - until she saw it.
We bought it and took it home.
DW does NOT do redecorating - she thinks long and hard beforehand on what she really wants!
