Man Sparks Debate Over Grey Velvet Living Room That's 'His Idea Of Hell'

For some, the idea of a grey and white velvet living room, adorned with rugs and cushions, might well sound like the absolute dream.

But there are some who are not only repulsed by the idea, but actually find it downright offensive.

Sharing a picture of a lounge with a massive white couch, fluffy throws and diamante chandelier, with a huge TV, blue mood lighting and a statement floor candle, one Twitter user wrote: "I'd just like to share with you my idea of hell x".

"Perfect, if you've got Elsa and the f*cking Abominable Snowman round for tea...," agreed one in reply, as the tweet was shared on an Instagram meme account.

"One glass of red wine and it's over," said another, as a third wrote: "Nothing a 3 year-old and a cup of vimto couldn't solve".

"Hunbelievable," someone else chimed in, rather mockingly, before a fellow social media questioned: "What in the live love laugh is this?"

However, others thought the critics were being unfair.

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

As another agreed: "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 bugger off xx"

"You must be extremely privileged if this is your 'hell,'" a third quipped.

We guess the jury is still out on this one...

Mary Rose Young, 61, bought her countryside cottage in the leafy Lydney, Gloucester, back in 1987 for just £30,000.

Ever since, the eccentric potter has been hand painting her home in colourful shades and patterns and decking it out in one-of-a-kind trinkets to match her eclectic style.

Mary Rose - who has a dream of opening a boutique hotel - put her home on the market in 2014, and estate agents encouragingly told her she should be able to fetch upwards of £250,000 for it.

However, ever since, property agents have only been able to lure one potential buyer to view the house, with no luck.

Despite her struggles selling, Mary refuses to paint over her colourful home-cum-pottery studio, which she lives in with her husband Phil Butcher, 62, a musician.

"I made this house around my own life and I wasn't thinking about it being sellable," said Mary Rose. "We're living like two children in a doll's house and in retrospect why would anybody else want to buy it?

"It's like a playhouse for adults. I just thought it might go to a mad collector of my work who might want to buy it, but no one was interested."

We guess home decor really is subjective. If they don't like it, they can lump it.
