Reader Question

“You were my original inspiration for my house almost 6 years ago. I found you on Pinterest. What is a good time frame for redecorating?”

Hi Friend! Thanks for your question on Instagram (if you are not following me on Insta meet me there at Blueeggbrownnest and find me on Pinterest too! They have a lot of new features).

I love this question.

The small, less-pricey items like pillows/pillow covers and accessories like books and planters, rugs you can easily replace without breaking the bank. There are so many places to shop now. I probably do this every 2-3 years.

A step up from that is counter stools, coffee tables, lamps and chairs I replace or reupholster around 5 years.

The big, expensive items like couches is about 10 years.

And when you are stuck in your house being safe from COVID, after 10 months, I give you permission to change all of it! Kidding, but I know it’s hard being indoors and staring at the same furniture.

I thought it would be fun to do a little trip down blog memory lane. So many of these furnishings have been sold or replace mine the bigger items. Pix start from 2009
