In TLC’s new show Four Houses, contestants tour and judge each other’s unique homes based on style, originality, and livability. Each week, a contestant wins $10,000 and a chance to be featured in an upcoming issue of Better Homes and Gardens.
Four unique New Jersey homes were featured in the last episode with Carol Barth’s home taking first place. We had the opportunity to chat with Carol about her luxurious home.
How would you describe your homes aesthetic?
It’s traditional. Traditional cottage style with a European flair. My husband is from Europe so some of the decor in the house has European touch.
Which room do you spend the most time in?
I think downstairs. Our kitchen opens right to the great room so we spend most of the time just downstairs. It’s a very big and open space in my house.
What makes the home uniquely you?
It’s the type of home you never have to leave. We have everything here from a gym to recording studios, movie theaters. Everything’s here.
Do you have a favorite piece of furniture?
My chandeliers, for sure. They’re very big and over the top.
Aside from your own home, which house would you live in?
I really don’t think I could live in any of them. I thought Victoria, she lived on the boat. I thought that it was so different and it was outrageous but I really don’t think that I could live in any other. I love my own home.
What do you plan to do with the winnings?
It’s going right into our backyard. Our backyard has been under construction. My husband is making it similar to a country club. We have everything from Koi ponds to fire pits to pool houses, it’s going to be pretty outrageous.
