I'm an elegance coach – the three common mistakes making your home look TACKY and how to avoid them | The Sun

AN elegance coach has detailed three common décor mistakes that make your home look tacky.

Shruti Advani, who talks fashion, finance, and feminism on her TikTok account, detailed her tips for an elegant home in a recent post.

In a recent video, Shruti said: "Your home is your castle and you should do in it as you please, but just be aware that if you are doing any of these things, you're screaming tack."

Her first rule was to avoid plastic, which she called "the worst offender."

"Plastic home plants, they're not fooling anyone. Plastic flowers … just go outside and pick some real ones," Shruti said.

Even if you are trying to preserve something with plastic, like your dining room table or living room furniture, it's not worth it, according to Shruti.

Shruti is also not a fan of life-sized wedding portraits.

The last mistake is leaving old magazines around your home.

Shruti said: "Don't leave books and newspapers lying around on your coffee table unless you know you have the discipline to remove them regularly."
