When shopping for new carpet take along a sample of the dirt from the yard.  

Make sure it blends well.

Just let her pick it. It’s not worth the struggle.

When you're looking at carpet...

Her: Do you like this?

You:  What do you think?

Her: I kind of like it.

You: I like it too.


------ or ------

You: Do you like this one?

Her: I don't think that goes with what we have.

You: I think you're right.  I'll put it back.


Yes

When my employer decided to re-carpet my office, I got to choose the color.  I picked the color that best matched black coffee to better hide spills.  I found that relaxing.

Reds and yellows are not relaxing.

Blues and greens are relaxing.

Emerald green also hides dirt well, but it is not an on-trend color currently.  Mint green walls have a larger calming effect than does the green floors.  

Here is an article on the psychology of color:

Blue colors tend to be soothing, like other earth colors—this is the color of the sky. Blues make people feel calm. It’s also a cool color, so it will bring your perceived temperature down.

As another earth color, green is also calming—think grassy lawns and trees with their summer leaves. It’s also the symbol of money, so it might make your heart beat a little faster. You’ll see a lot of greens in hospitals and healthcare, as well as blues. A light green, like in the bedroom below, makes for a relaxing space.


Benjamin Moore has declared Agean Teal the color of the year for 2021:  https://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/colo...-year-2021

Each paint company has its own color of the year and here is a list of those colors.

However the most calming color is the one that makes your wife happiest.  But note that the idea of white carpet is more attractive than ownership of white carpet.  It will get dirty and often.  Shampooing makes it worse as the shampoo residue seems to be a dirt magnet.  It looks great in magazines, but much less so in your home.

If you're a psycho, orange or purple carpet will relax you.

If you're a golfer or outdoors type, green will sooth you.

If you have kids or animals, you'll be relaxed if you have brown or black carpet.

If you're a mass murderer or nut case, stick with red to blend in and relax.

 If you like to see plumbers and electricians and HVAC guys sweat it out and go nuts, get white carpet.

There is a color for everyone. Yes

Everyone has their own preferences. Accordingly, the color options for the carpet will be exactly as many as the answers.
