In the clip shared to TikTok (@chartarahome), Char shares the three things she says can make your interior look cheap rather than expensive.
First up on her list of things to avoid are over door hooks.
Offering an alternative to replace them with, she says: “Hidden storage – the reason I put them in the video was purely because it can create clutter.”
Next up, Char emphasises the importance of having things matching and urges people to never opt for uncoordinated kitchen cupboards.
Finally, and perhaps the most controversial, Char says that crushed velvet – whether it’s a sofa, cushions or bedding – is a big no.
The video has since gone viral, racking up a whopping 2.5 million views and several comments – with very mixed responses.
