Details and inspiration: Neon

I’m a child of the 80s, I remember fluoro colours the first time round, grew up watching Married with Children and Saved by the Bell, and I had a non-ironic legging collection. Maybe this is why my love of neon has resurfaced, in the form of a serious design crush on all things dayglo.

I’d been trying to think of a way to incorporate the trend in my own home but as my flat is currently a bit of a building site I’ve let the details slip in favour of exposed brick walls and raising ceilings. This morning I wanted to tie back my sheer curtains to let some of that glorious sunshine in and had to improvise…with a neon yellow narrow belt! How funky is this wee detail??

I’m loving the neon accent details in these rooms, especially when used in conjunction with strong neutrals like grey! Even the smallest details (check out the washi tape adorning simply mounted pictures and the white chairs edged with neon trim) look so fresh.
