I would expect seeing something like exposed fluorescent lights on the ceiling, leopard and/or zebra skins for the sofa and carpet, fountain with gold plated statues in the living room, polka dot bean bags, posters of Rambo,Jean Claude Van Damme, and maybe Chuck Norris on the wall, rifles and dead animal heads hanging on the wall, large aquarium full of exotic marine animals, cavalier mixed colors for walls

I said : A BIT bad-taste – parvenu-ish and blinging (and masculine).
So what would you have expected if I had left out " a bit" ?

I think having a pool table in the sitting room is illustrating "a bit", and that the bad-taste combination of expensive furniture can be labelled "parvenu-ish" – not to forget the size of the house.
