Melissa Gorga was proud to give fans a glimpse of what's inside her new home, but many didn't like her choice of chandeliers.

Melissa and Joe have been building their dream house for over a year, and this week, they finally moved into their new mansion. She took to Instagram to give fans a glimpse of their foyer design.

"It's all about simple elegance this time. The ceiling design is so simple yet so important," she wrote in the caption. "@avenuelighting with these glam chandeliers @fuda_tile_king with the most gorgeous hi shine marble floors @elementflooringus with the wood flooring. Thank you @houseofstyle_design for helping along this journey #housedesign #foyerdecor."

Her fabric chandeliers got the attention of many fans. They received mixed responses, with many showing their disapproval of the items. Several said they were not a fan of her chandeliers.

"Beautiful home, not a fan of the chandeliers," one wrote. Another added, "These 'chandeliers' are not it."

"It's giving babadook in the Valentino rock stud shoes," a third person added.

"It's almost like Victoria's Secret isn't doing so well anymore, so they decided to repurpose their holiday lingerie pieces into light fixtures," a fourth user wrote.

Another netizen said that the chandeliers looked pretty "up close." However, from a distance, "it appears as though you covered your lights with three huge garbage bags." The user gave Melissa's chandeliers the benefit of a doubt by saying, "Perhaps pictures and angles are not doing them justice."

Several also raised concerns about the dust the fabric chandeliers would collect over time. One said they were "dust collectors" and "dust will be hanging from them."

While many gave Melissa's choice of chandlers a thumbs down, several also supported her decision to add the items to her home. According to them, she indeed has an "eye" for design.

"I would have never picked a light fixture like that, but I seriously love how it turned out! You have a great eye for design," one wrote. Another added, "Love! You have such an incredible eye for design."

"OMG WOW," a third person wrote.

"Always exuding elegance on all levels!!" another opined.

"Cannot wait for a tour of the completed inside of we'd be so lucky Melissa! It's all so gorgeous!" another follower wrote.

On Nov. 18, Melissa revealed that their family was finally moving into their new home. She shared a snap of her daughter Antonia Gorga standing next to several packed Roadway Moving boxes.

"New beginnings! It's all happening. It's finally moving day. You know I'm a pro at moving, and I never move without @roadwaymoving," she wrote. "Wish us luck! Can't wait to show you more of the house !!"

She also shared a video of their home to show off its finished exterior, which features dozens of windows, black trim, black doors and black decor pieces, including doormats and planters. However, the video also received mixed responses. While some found the house beautiful, some were not impressed due to the lack of symmetry.

"Omg, the windows not aligned, the peak not centered, ahhhhh it's killing my OCD," one wrote. Another echoed the same sentiment, "Omg, the asymmetry is making my OCD go through the roof."

Melissa and Gorga's "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" co-stars left sweet comments in the post. Tamra Judge and Gretchen Rossi wrote, "Congrats." Margaret Josephs said the house was "magnificent" and "perfection."
