Copycat Neighbors


What do you say to the neighbors with more money but no design sense to stop copying everything you do in your home. I’ve stopped inviting them over. Unfortunately our renovations moved outside. All it took was them hanging out their top floor window and so the copying has continued…..literally a few days after we’d finished. I completely understand the difference between design inspiration and blatant copying. What took us a year to conceptualise, save for, design…. taking a risk, sometimes thinking on our feet, shopping non stop to find the perfect item was copied in 3 days. The joy has been sucked right out of my work and all I want to do now is rip it out again. My husband reckons I should be flattered. Unfortunately all I feel is that my privacy has been violated. Anyone else have this problem?
