On my mind: Neon home-interior

It’s official: the neon trend appear to be here to stay. Several seasons ago I recall hearing from someone in the industry that neon was a fad soon be gone. It could not have been more wrong; the neon palette with hot pink, flourocent yellow and orange at heart has migrated from garments to accessories, and from there to home-interior. Rather then being the centre of attention like it use to be in the 80 – neon colours has taken on a more humble role – being the perfect accent and partner in crime to to grey, nude and brown tones.

Sick of your old wooden chairs? Add a little bit of neon colour on the legs of the chairs and they will feel like new.
Don’t want to spend money on expensive wrapping paper? Take a brown paper bag and add a fluorescent ribbon to it and voila you have created a festive yet decorative present wrap. Below is bunch of inspiration how-to use neon in your home as well as DIY ideas that easily can be turned into reality.
