Is it just me or were those marble countertops a bit over the top?
Sure they were gorgeous but were they really necessary in a basement laundry room? I'm not knocking that she has the bucks (I don't) for such extravagances but I'm really disturbed by those countertops for some reason. And what was wrong with having to wait for custom ordered countertops? The instant grativation thing also irritated me. Maybe I'm just PMS'ing ;)
The flooring, well funnily enough she used the same marble as I did for my ensuite. But how did they leap from doing vinyl flooring to marble? Are vinyl flooring and laminate countertops the epitome of low classy these days? I guess I'm guilty of being low classy. Oh well.
At the end of the day it is her money to do with what she wishes but it's the not what's being said that is bothering me. I just feel that when people watch this kind of thing they come to expect it and if they've never priced out marble countertops like that they will never know how much they really cost. She's contributing to societies overly high expectations imo.
