I’m an interior designer, things to largely avoid in your home – and the carpet that’s so tacky

NO ONE wants their home to look dated or out of fashion – but an interior designer has warned it will if you have one of four things in your home.

Home expert Amy, who can be found on her TikTok profile @emeraldandblush, revealed that there are big design issues in her expert eyes – from reclining sofas to mirrored drawers.

Posting a video to her social media account where she lifted the lid on the errors, Amy explained, “Here are some home decor pieces that I think you should avoid.

“I’m not here to offend, I’m just here to inform.”

Amy then started with one of her biggest design pet peeves – reclining sofas.

She said: “First of all, it’s the reclining sofas. I know they feel amazing, but they just aren’t cute.

“I’m so sorry but there are other ways to get your feet up and be comfortable.

“If you’re looking for a design-driven space, I don’t like that.”

Second on the list of design sins was any type of shaggy rug – especially ones with a bright tone running through it.

Amy continued, “There are other ways to make your space look glamorous.”

Mirrored furniture and gray crushed velvet sofas also made their way to the no-goes, as Amy described their downfalls.

She said: “I know these are such a big trend and some people love them, but there are much better and more timeless ways to make your home glam.”

Amy also said her mission is to take people’s attention away from the following interior trends and instead focus on what they really love.

She said: “I’m an interior designer who specializes in finding your own personal style so you can stop following trends and create a timeless, eclectic home.”

Mirrored furniture is at the top of the list
