You can't have it all ... sorry

"You can have it done well, quickly, or cheaply, but you can only pick two." 

This quote is from 'Todd and Nicole' whose renovated home was featured in "Apartment Therapy" and was their response when asked what advice they would like to give others. I often see clients and friends faced with this dilemma, and while there is no easy answer it is nice to know that there is no point trying to get three out of three for this! Taken on board this should save a lot of time and stress.
