Demi Moore has addressed her carpeted bathroom after fans criticised the “questionable” home decor choice.
Last week, the actress shared a glimpse of her bathroom turned office, where she recorded her new erotic podcast Dirty Diana, on Twitter.
In the photos, Moore can be seen sitting on a floral-printed couch in the middle of the wall-to-wall carpeted bathroom – prompting immediate reactions of confusion and horror on social media.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines
“I have seen a lot of questionable home decor in my short life, but nothing quite like Demi Moore’s bathroom,” one fan tweeted. “One word: CARPET.”
On Tuesday, during a virtual appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Ghost actress defended the home furnishing.
Calling in while sitting on the floral couch, Moore explained that the carpeting wasn’t actually her decision, but rather her ex-husband Bruce Willis’s.
“That originally was a Bruce Willis choice, not to put it off on him,” Moore said of the Idaho house where the couple raised their children.
The 57-year-old also acknowledged that climate played a part in the decision, telling Meyers: “We also live in the mountains where it gets very cold. So, it’s never bothered me, it’s actually quite good.”
“We put rugs in our bathroom!” she added.
Despite the criticism, Moore said she has enjoyed the public interest in her home decor choices.
“I appreciate the interest that has gone into all of my little oddities because this place definitely houses a lot of my treasures,” she said. “I have had some big laughs over the comments with my family.”
While the mother-of-three seemed to find the comments about her home decor choices amusing, she did point out that there was one detail she was “most disappointed” that people seemed to overlook – that the couch in question was actually a miniature couch.
Explaining that she couldn’t fit full-sized furniture into the bathroom, Moore said that she instead relied on the miniature couch she made “for my children long ago”.
“So I just whipped this baby in there,” she said.
As for why she decided to record her podcast in the bathroom in the first place, Moore revealed that the room had the “best sound”.
“We were doing this podcast, that we’re here to talk about, and we had to find the place for the best sound,” she said. “So I did a test in my closet, I did in various places. What came back is that the bathroom had the best sound.”
