Are Your Neighbors Copycats?
Seventy percent of homeowners admit that they’ve copied their next-door neighbor’s decor. The most common similarity was to their neighbor’s indoor furniture, according to a new international survey from the U.K. of 2,275 homeowners from My Job Quote, a job network resource.
And while imitation can be the sincerest form of flattery, most homeowners say—65%–say that they’re uncomfortable when they learn a neighbor has copied them. Yet, when homeowners were asked whether they’ve ever imitated aspects of their neighbor’s house, 70% admit yes.
