Modern Expectations in a Traditional World

How do you know when you're on the same page with your collaborators (architect, contractors, subs)?

For some things, where you can say "I want the Kohler faucet #12345 in Satin Nickel", you're done.

Try doing this with concrete. For this house, much of the exterior wall is unfinished concrete, as mentioned previously. Concrete is a wonderful material, but it's not like picking out a faucet. How do you agree on what "light, warm gray, but no brown or beige tones, natural-looking, without too many defects" looks like?

You can't.
