I love bright – the brighter the better, the more colours and patterns the more my heart sings! I am aware, however that for others that might sound like a migraine in the making, so here are some beautiful interiors where a smidgen of neon goes a long way. How to add so day-glow pizzaz to your happy home..
Pair neon with muted shades, softened grey and natural woven fabrics.
Go with the greats, Farrow and Ball have beautiful classic paints in their collection, but their new range certainly has that neon wow.
Start perhaps with some cushions, easy to change if they are too brave! I love these textiles, a definite eighties vibe.
Pair with delicate pastel shades for a subtle and soft room. Metallic notes and Modern furniture help to keep the space current.
Neon notes can be achieved on any surface, think walls with art, washi tape, posters. Or layer textiles, jewellery and books. (I have that yellow Patterns book in the foreground – lovely flock cover!) I like how acid these colours are but because they are used a shots, little bursts with natural accents, I think it works.
Consider some neon wire furniture – all the zing but with a light and delicate structure. Imagine these beauties in a dark painted room, sparsely lit and cosy with plenty of books and traditional woollen textiles.
Go bold with your very own installation! A little crazy perhaps but fun to do and you would make quite an impact. Reminds me of that childhood game cats-craddle!
For the nervous, hint at your liking for neon with sensible, grown-up black lampshades with a cheeky flash of pink inside.
I just love this chair – so very very yellow! Pairing it with this calming black-cherry-yogurt-colour works a charm.
Painting woodwork, especially a door I think is a great idea. I flash of occasional colour. This green is what you would call a wake up shade, very day-glow.
For some high glow glam this beautiful table marries natural wood and neon pink gloss.
And finally, a little bit of silliness. Floral wallpaper (not sure if it is purchased this way or a creative child has neatly coloured them in) with a white dresser and neon yellow sheep handles. Yep.
