CHELSEA Houska has appeared in HGTV magazine to promote her new show and readers weren’t impressed with her interior finds.
The Teen Mom was featured in the magazine and had the opportunity to recommend some of her “favorite” finds.
Chelsea recommended three items to readers of the magazine: a throw blanket, a candle and a rug.
The candle she recommended can be found on homesick.com and costs $38. The scent is “Bonfire Nights”.
The throw blanket is a gold noir throw by Safavieh that retails for $64.50. It’s a fluffy blanket that looks like it’s made out of brown animal fur.
The most expensive item on the list was a rug in the shape and pattern of a cowhide.
It’s a faux leather rug by Ruggable and would cost $349 plus tax to buy the 4.5-by-6-foot rug.
One fan created a Reddit thread about Chelsea’s favorite home decor, and other users were outraged when they saw the item’s price tags.
One user said, “Who spends $38 on a candle? $350 for a rug?”
Another wrote, “$349 for a fake animal rug… like I’m glad it’s fake but holy shit that’s an expensive fake rug.”

A third said: “$350 for a *** rug girl wtf I’ll go to Marshalls and get a rug of equal or better quality. This show hasn’t aired yet and it’s already bugging me.”
Someone outside the US wrote: “£31.14 for a candle! £286 for a rug?!??!?!? Chelsea makes me Google talk rates.”
Someone else said, “A tiny candle that costs as much as most people to fill their gas tank?”
HERO OF THE LIVING ROOM?
Though she has a deal with HGTV for her new show Down Home Fab, some critics aren’t convinced of Chelsea’s she has what it takes to succeed in the renovation industry.
There was a lot of criticism when it came to her $750,000 South Dakota mansion and style.
In a trailer for the show, Chelsea said, “I would describe my design style as very glamorous in South Dakota.
Fans called the exterior of Chelsea’s house “ugly” because she painted it black.
The first episode of Down Home Fab premiered on HGTV on January 16, and there are five more hour-long episodes to come.
Chelsea will be responsible for each design and Cole will play the role of project manager.
