Understanding the Client's Design Aesthetic

Here's a question I've been thinking about as I just signed a client and encountered this situation.  How do you navigate the beginning of the concept & design process with a client who has almost zero reference points?  Who can't identify a style they like, doesn't have inspiration images, doesn't provide many answers on questionnaire, and house is essentially a blank slate?  Especially if this is an e-design client and you can't go through a laborious process of discovery?  I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.  

Thanks,
