Neon has been a big thing in the design world for months now, splashing it’s cheerful self all over the pages of lifestyle magazines. Being someone who prefers to tone things down in the colour department, it’s taken me some time to catch on to the trend. Until recently. Like a neon bright lightbulb going off in my head, the bold hue has nestled itself in my consciousness and made itself quite at home. While I can’t see myself lashing out on this electrifyingly bright trend, I do see the fun neon can bring to a space and have started loving neon pink in small doses. Here are some of my favourite neon finds.
Adding pops of neon pink to an existing home decor item might be all that’s needed to elevate the space and add some fun. I love how a few neon polkadots applied to an inexpensive rice paper lantern adds a completely different feel to the dining space featured above, and love the effect of washi tape applied to the base of a candle! Painting the legs of a table is also a great way to introduce neon into your colour palette.

Holly Becker of the beautiful blog Decor8 does neon to perfection, with tiny electric pink additions dotted throughout her studio. While I was in Hannover for a recent bogging workshop she gave in her home, I couldn’t help but notice the creative way Holly used neon to bring life to her tablescapes. Whether simply placing a few tealight candle holders on the table or crafting pretties from paper and fabric to string up on a fine neon thread, Holly’s got it just right.
I adore how the immensely creative Sania Pell applied a tiny neon pink edging applied to the above fresh flowers.
Ferm Living are right on top of the neon trend right now, and offer different wallpaper designs in neon pink, as well as gorgeous scatter cushions. I know I am on a neon pink rampage, but I do like the neon orange and grey combo!

If you're not quite bold enough to add neon tones to your home, try it out in the kids room! I love these neon bright kid’s beds, or a simple garland will already add some fun to any space. This one is from a shop called Nice Party on Etsy.
Have a neon bright weekend!
