Happy Friday, everyone! Here’s a little eye candy to get the weekend off to a good start.

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. ▽

Friday Favorites ▷ Ready For Fall

I’m so ready for fall right now. I’m over the 90+ degree weather, the Florida humidity and the bugs. I want to be able to go outside and actually enjoy it. Unfortunately, we won’t get the cooler weather for a while here. Until then, I can only dream. Here are some beautiful things for the home to get me in the mood…

Friday Favorites ▷ Handcrafted Modern

I love mid-century modern design, and I also have an appreciation for new designs which are inspired by pieces from this period. It takes a lot of time and effort to plan and construct these creations. Here are some incredible handcrafted pieces currently on Etsy.

Well I’d better start packing my actual bag, or I’ll be in a rush later. I’m about to go pick up Cadell from his last day of pre-school, and take him to his other grandparents. Then I’m going to pick up a few essentials and head back home to have some evening cocktails with my bff Danielle and Kelly. I’m really hoping we’ll find some goodies this weekend! I’ll give a full report on Monday. Have a great weekend, everyone!
