  1. PainterwithCats on May 2, 2023 at 11:14 am

    Yes! Please make a video about designing with someone who doesn’t share your style. My husband and I are super opinionated about what we like in design, but we usually like opposite things

  2. GTTTO on May 2, 2023 at 11:14 am

    ❤️❤️ this is one of THE best videos you’ve published yet. The tips, the chemistry, the flow, photography, your interaction w the camera & even your hair looked perfect!

    Re: the tips – totally agree w/them all & use these w/my staging. I remember decades ago I worked in a tile showroom where couples would come in to select tile, show me their architectural diagrams, carpet and paint samples, etc. It was a real eye opener to me who studied design in college, to see how different couples approached these decisions….some were similar, some just the wife was engaged, some where the husband was more engaged, and very few where the h&w were on the same page and work through the process. It was a lesson in psychology as well as design! 😊

  3. Pat Wilkinson on May 2, 2023 at 11:14 am

    Love this video. Such an educational video. Helps make you think about the choices you make. Also, love watching you both together. So much chemistry

  4. Cynthia McFarland on May 2, 2023 at 11:14 am

    Would you share how you do an interior design board or the creative process tools you use?

  5. Escape the Ordinary on May 2, 2023 at 11:15 am

    I would love a video on mixing my husband and my styles! He is super contemporary and I am not but I’m certainly not traditional. It’s tricky! I love your videos!

  6. Enlightenment Barbie - Artist Gillian Keller on May 2, 2023 at 11:15 am

    This is the best advice ever and I’m only like 1/3 the way through the video!

  7. Freestyle on May 2, 2023 at 11:15 am

    What great tips! A sight line is so important! It is like when I create a photo or a piece of art. For an artist a focal point or where you lead the eye is so important. Sight lines are similar. Does it flow… Does it make sense. Are you creating an obstacle course or a comfortable easy flow… Is it too busy or does it make sense… 😊

  8. Vicky Taylor on May 2, 2023 at 11:18 am

    Love your videos! Have learnt so so much! Thank you. Please do a video on how to design and plan with two different styles in mind. Thank you. 😘

  9. Tina Miller on May 2, 2023 at 11:18 am

    Oh yes please for the video. Hubby and I are moving into a new house and we’d like to update our furniture (a lot of it is what we could afford when the kids were young and hasn’t aged well). I love clean lines, and printed fabrics and he loves chunky 70’s wooden furniture and pain fabrics!

  10. Dominique Jones on May 2, 2023 at 11:18 am

    Yes yes yes on the video for couples who aren’t on the same page.. we have concrete floors, huge windows and butcher block countertops leather couches, he loves MODERN and cold and hates clutter.. basically Batman’s lair.. we both LOVE plants.
    I love antique, modern, light natural wood, leather, terra cotta pots, pottery and SCANDINAVIAN … we need to blend without chaos 😄

  11. Beliyoga Sfeti on May 2, 2023 at 11:18 am

    Sei fantastica

  12. Kimberly Paddock on May 2, 2023 at 11:19 am

    I’m sitting here watching this with my black and white cup of coffee, only mine has a”K” on it☺☕❤

  13. Joanne Nepia on May 2, 2023 at 11:20 am

    Your home is incredibly beautiful. Love from new Zealand.

  14. MaryJane Traponese on May 2, 2023 at 11:22 am

    I am learning so much and you are also validating some of my eclectic ideas. My question today pertains to flow. I have a living room that has sliders out to a small porch that has a wide water view of a lake. In order to take advantage of the view, I turned my sectional so the room would orient towards the view. But this may have lessened the flow into that room by having the back of the sectional facing you as you approach the room. Prior to that, I had the shorter part of the sectional blocking the view of the water. Would you address placements of furniture in tough spots? Maybe it’s a case of the "lesser of two evils". Thanks again for sharing your skills and relationship with us all!

  15. Claudete Machado on May 2, 2023 at 11:23 am

    I adore jack ❤😂

  16. Tagrafa on May 2, 2023 at 11:25 am

    Question: Is it okay to use velvet pillows in summer? Right now I have red wool boucle pillows but thinking ahead. Boucle is wintery me, but so is cotton velvet. Is silk my only option? I have a white leather L-shaped sofa. Thanks in advance.

  17. Tagrafa on May 2, 2023 at 11:28 am

    Yes, yes, yes on mixing styles. I have an L-shaped modern sofa, an antique kidney desk with a high-back Taylor King chair, and a matte black Asian armoire (among other things 😁) all in the same room. LOL!

  18. Jenny Godbolt-Hoffman on May 2, 2023 at 11:28 am

    Please do a video with different styles..

  19. Doreen Trusty on May 2, 2023 at 11:28 am

    How do you know what your style is??????

  20. vincentvangogodancer on May 2, 2023 at 11:30 am

    That Jack of yours is weird but he’s definitely a keeper

  21. RH on May 2, 2023 at 11:32 am

    Half of this stuff I had never thought about, so thanks for blowing up my mind 😅🤯

  22. The Beauty Minimalist on May 2, 2023 at 11:34 am

    Yes please to a video on how to design for a space with another person! I feel like this is an important topic for every couple 😂 amazing video, thank you 💜💜

  23. Patricia Kelly on May 2, 2023 at 11:34 am

    I would like a video that takes in different styles of each partner. X thank you. Xx

  24. Mlle.Brezil on May 2, 2023 at 11:35 am

    Yes on the video of how to design with somebody that doesnt’ share your same design style! I would love it! Thanks

  25. Natasha York on May 2, 2023 at 11:37 am

    Yes, I would like a video trying to decorate with someone who doesn’t share your style.

  26. Christina Morales on May 2, 2023 at 11:37 am

    Yes please give us ways to combine styles! My husband and I have different styles, trying to combine and make it look right is hard

  27. Carmen Rosario on May 2, 2023 at 11:38 am

    Valentina, where can I get the black planter with spikes, the one Jack got you as a surprise? THANK you guys, you are a treasure!! Just pray you guys do videos DAILY! You are soooo missed between videos!!!

  28. Carmen Rosario on May 2, 2023 at 11:39 am

    Any recommendations on of very affordable ceiling lamps and faux branches? THANK YOU ALL!!!

  29. Natalie B on May 2, 2023 at 11:39 am

    Love this video, I found your tips super helpful. I’m loving your format lately V, really like the mix of your solo videos and those with Jack. You even get ‘mix’ into your videos! 🤣

  30. Marta Haro on May 2, 2023 at 11:41 am

    Yes, yes, yes for that video of how to design if you and your spouse have different design styles. ❤️👏

  31. Sarah Tomaszewski on May 2, 2023 at 11:43 am

    I see something here within this relationship of their’s. In the beginning he tells his wife she is hot and often when you have been together for awhile or even this happens within a womens spirit that they stop believing these words so they almost don’t want to hear it. You are hot! You look amazing try to embrace it to believe it within yourself! The way this man looks at you is evident of admiration and love for you. I see this with clients and try to remind them of this as well. Loved the video!

  32. Kimberly walker on May 2, 2023 at 11:45 am

    Thank you I really enjoy the flow from every direction 💕😎

  33. Rita Rushing on May 2, 2023 at 11:47 am

    Thank you so much for opening your hearts and voices to your audience. Sharing your spirit is so restorative.

  34. K Sizemore on May 2, 2023 at 11:47 am

    Omg… He’s enthralled; and I love it. 💝

  35. John Davidson on May 2, 2023 at 11:47 am

    yes I would love a video on combining styles.

  36. Monica Estes on May 2, 2023 at 11:49 am

    Yes, please do a video on differences in design style. My husband and I can butt heads most on decor and design. Please give us pointers!

  37. Kitty Elenbaas on May 2, 2023 at 11:50 am

    Great content! If you repaint what color would you paint after black?

  38. Monica Hartman on May 2, 2023 at 11:55 am

    Omg y’all are freaking adorable! Love your dynamic ❤️

  39. Robin Gennarelli on May 2, 2023 at 11:55 am

    I love listening to you guys talk! The laughter is the best part. I learn a lot, but have lots of fun listening to your banter..it’s so affectionate and respectful, kind and funny.

  40. irisJane_Depp on May 2, 2023 at 11:57 am

    I love watching both of you and I get a lot of ideas.

  41. J Laurelle on May 2, 2023 at 11:57 am

    Y’all are so cute! He clearly adores you 🥰

  42. Lara Korik on May 2, 2023 at 12:00 pm

  44. C Barker on May 2, 2023 at 12:01 pm

    Yes! Please do that video of how to design with a husband that has a completely different style then I do.
    And this video was actually really awesome. So much of what you said should be obvious, and and very basic and yet it wasn’t, for me at least, until you articulated it. So thank you for that!

  45. Carole Buckle on May 2, 2023 at 12:01 pm

    Loved these tips guys, love you guys 🥰🇬🇧xxx

  46. Sarai Raia on May 2, 2023 at 12:02 pm

    Can you please do a video on how to style built in shelves. I have two with a fire place and so much space don’t know how to fill it in without it being cluttered

  47. Beth H on May 2, 2023 at 12:02 pm

  48. Karla Pinkman on May 2, 2023 at 12:10 pm

  49. Valli S on May 2, 2023 at 12:11 pm

    Style choices…wow, now that’s a great question. Traditional mixed with a touch of exquisite luxury and homey. Hum, that’s a challenge! HA Thank you for the video.

  50. Erika Pillsbury on May 2, 2023 at 12:12 pm
