Decóraselo


Couldn’t “decorate it for yourself” also be a correct choice if the implied pronoun/antecedent is “usted?”

I can’t see why “usted” wouldn’t be as valid as “él/ella/ellos/ellas” for this construction.

Hola Jonathan

to refer to "usted" the pronoun would indeed be the same: "se", but the verb would need to be using the imperative for "usted", so you need:

"decóreselo"

I hope this clarified it.
