Home Inspiration ▷ Neon

Overall, I kind of stick to neutral colors in my home and wardrobe. I love color, but I have specific favorites and they have to be the perfect shade/hue, etc.

Color can be powerful, and trigger strong emotions. I have to surround myself with things that bring me peace and happiness. Neon, or fluorescent colors evoke good feelings for me. I was first introduced in the 80s, when every kid was wearing neon socks and Frankie Goes to Hollywood/Relax t-shirts. My mother would laugh and tell me that they actually wore those colors in the 50s. Then I watched it re-emerge a few years back when I was working in the surf industry. I was a surf/swimwear buyer and it was so much fun to choose all of the great colors for the shop. So for me, fluorescent/neon colors = fun.

I love neon colors, but only touches of it. I wouldn’t want to have it scattered all over my house, but a few little bright surprises here and there would be nice.

Here are some great examples. ▽
