Way to pass the buck Karr Bick
Stopped watching when I heard she “only” has a $100,000 budget. Geesh! I
She had a stressful time?Well here in Lancashire,England,we were stupid
enough to buy and renovate a Grade II listed house,even more stupidly we
picked up an interior designer with a worldwide reputation and a leading
architect firm-all with the right accent and right social cache.What
enfolded has been a disaster,a taupe house with poorly executed products
and finishes and a very irate English Heritage.We have been told repeated
its our fault,but how do you pick an interior designer,architect builders
and landscapers if they all come with gushing reviews in periodicals such
as Country Life and Elle Decor.We have no talent for home making yet we
also know when we have been duped-a lot!We run businesses and employ a lot
of people yet we fell for the faeces that was establishment directives.So
how do you really choose a designer,architect,landscaper and more to
produce a home you can be proud of?
A profesional designer, profesional landscapers, a built in refridgerator,
granite countertops: these are the things that eat a $100k budget quickly.
I don’t understand why people hire professional decorators. They just tell
you what’s cool basically. You couldn’t look up some pics on the net and
chose from for free!
She had too many expectations for such a small budget
you could buy a whole new house with $100,000 budget xDDD
A $100,000 can go a very long way…if you don’t spend it on high end
finishes. I’m in my 50’s and we have moved 4 times in our 33 year
marriage. I still don’t have most of the upgrade “must haves” that are in
this home. I also don’t understand why the woman wasn’t advised by the
design team to get a written contract and why the design person wasn’t
overseeing the original contractor closer.
I`ve yet to see an interior designer, on any show I have watched, that I
would like to hire to finish a room for me….sorry, they all sound the
same and have the same ideas…they focus on what is fashionable at the
time. I`m not interested.
This seems like an example of someone trying to keep up with the joneses
trying to live above their means without proper budget thinking or
planning…disaster waiting to happen
if she didn’t hire you then the $100,000 would have finished the house.
that contractor got $20,000 to do a crappy job. she could have done the
reno herself and saved $20,000.
(What channel does this come on??) O_O

Looks great but the dining area is too dark for my taste.
Love the choices of wallpaper. Everthing looks wonderful and well put
together. Great job.
