Neon Glow

Neon’s are everywhere this season from fashion to home decor. It’s impossible not to notice everyone wearing colored jeans and celebrities at movie premiers in gorgeous neon dresses. I love this guide to “doing neon right”.

Just the other day, my husband asked me why I was still living in the 80′s…really, what do you even say to that?

{Casual evening neon}

{Street style neon}

These colors aren’t just in fashion, but home decor as well! Neons add a touch of vibrancy and are a fun way to liven up your home.

Here are a few ways to add a little neon to your life without going over the top-

This yellow bar stool from ABC Home is the perfect color to mix with grays, blacks, and whites. I also love the idea of this mixed with turquoise!

This dining room from House Beautiful mixes bold colors with classic black and whites. Johnathan Adler did a wonderful job mixing mid-century modern pieces with funky yellow Chinese Chippendale Chairs (and turquoise drapes to boot!)

This dramatic yellow mirror from Horchow would be perfect in an entryway.. Maybe with some gray and white striped wallpaper and a Lucite table underneath!

How funky and mod!  Orange wall clock from CB2

Pairing turquoise blue and bold orange is the perfect neon color palette. I love how they toned down all the neon by adding in neutrals like the black and white lamp and light taupe paint color (same rules as in fashion!) Houzz

A bright yellow sofa with funky eclectic pillows paired with dark gray walls creates an airy, perky atmosphere! Houzz

Don’t you just love these hot pink chairs paired with the dark wood table?

The rug in this space ties everything together. All the colors from the rug are spread throughout the bedroom and creates a cohesive look.  Notice the neon green chandelier!  Houzz

I’ve always been a big fan of Stray Dog Design’s Artichoke lamp..it comes in wild neon colors like pink, chartreuse, and turquoise!

 

And you thought colored bathtubs were so out of date in the 40′s…well they are back! This neon green tub screams for attention in this small white and black bathroom. Pinterest 

 

This movie pool sofa is perfect for the college student living in a small apartment looking to brighten up their space.

Now this is the literal meaning of neon! Back lighting a dark toned painting with neon colored light creates a new story for the painting to tell. Elle Decor

These beautimous bedside chests in lacquered orange paint from 1st Dibbs paired with brown leather drawers is a unique pop of color that would look perfect in a masculine bedroom.

This basement makeover from House Beautiful is so fun. There are so many wonderful colors that can brighten anyone’s mood.

 

So what do you say? Are you a neon lover yet?

Give your interior a unique look with home appliances and various home decor items. I would suggest you to keep one or two bar stools in your dining room or kitchen space and see what impact you can create in your guests’ mind.
