Man blasts velvet grey interior trend as his ‘idea of hell’ – but gets savaged for being ‘bitter’


HOW you decorate your home is a completely personal preference - but we're the first to admit that we're forever getting swept up in interior trends.

Although we originally became obsessed with Mrs Hinch for her quick and easy cleaning hacks, the Essex mum is pretty much the poster woman for all things grey and velvet - but not everyone is a fan.

Earlier this year, a man went viral on Twitter when he blasted a bang-on trend living room he'd spotted online.

He wrote: "I'd just like to share with you my idea of hell x"

Along with an inviting white corner sofa, the lucky owner of the room has a flat-screen TV mounted on the wall and some fluffy throws and velvet cushions.

Finishing off the look, the homeowner had added some crystal chandeliers and displayed a Chanel logo trinket on top of their glass cabinet.

Needless to say, the tweet sparked fierce debate among users - and people felt the criticism was unfair.

"It's a roof over their head & they've made it how they want it," one replied. "People are so bitter."

Another added: "You must be extremely privileged if this is your 'hell'."

Meanwhile, a third said: "Might not be everyone's cup of tea but it's not ya gaff so mind ya business. They've obviously worked hard to get it how they want so b***** off."

Highlighting that it's maybe not the most practical living space, a fourth joked: "One glass of red wine and it's over!"
