    The deadly tapestry + lights combo...

    7. "Millennials all have a tacky coffee table with some sort of gaming console on it. Oh, and a bong! There's also a hoodie on a hook at the bottom of the stairway, a hoodie in a heap on the floor, and a hoodie draped over a cheap thrift store recliner."

    9. "The 'Millennial Home Goods Quote Aesthetic' is genuinely nauseating. 'But first, coffee,' and sayings about how the house is a home, how family means xyz, or some corny sassy quote."

    12. "All gray or white walls, floors, cabinets, etc. Put some more color in there! Also windows that take up the whole wall, especially for bathrooms in some really expensive houses. Where's the privacy?"

    And lastly:

    14. "Millennials love to decorate their houses with these big collages of them and their friends. Like, pick a few pics, frame them, and hang them up. It's giving college dorm vibes..."
