To ask for some sort of consultation

Basically our curtain pole fell down the other day and to put the new one up we needed to fill the holes the old one made.
So today when I finish work, DP calls me to tell me he’s painted the bedroom (it was due a paint) so I ask which colour he tells me orange 😭 so I’m like WTF I hate the colour orange, so that pissed me off straight away. He then tells me that my sister helped him choose. I asked him why I wasn’t consulted. He just kept saying I tried to do something nice. I understand that but this is the 3rd time he’s done something like this without asking my opinion. He knows I’m very particular.
Then my sister calls me and tells me it’s actually yellow which is even worse....another colour I hate 😖 super pissed off at this point.
When I got home we went out to choose a colour together.

Before everyone says I’m selfish. I totally apprechiate the sentiment and love that he wanted to surprise me but I just feel that’s something we should have decided together Especially as he’s partly colourblind so I usually have to help him match certain things. I pay half the rent so am entitled to an opinion. The point is he wasn’t understanding the thing I was mad about which was him not consulting me not the fact he was trying to do something nice. But now he’s down £28 because we had to buy more paint 😒

YANBU. He is controlling things, under the guise of it being 'a nice suprise'.
