5 Happy Inspirations: Neon & Fun


Last month I was basically drowning in inspiration when I visited the imm Cologne and Maison & Objet design fairs. Pastel hues were one of the major trends. But vibrant colours such as neons were trending, too. In order to brighten up this snowy hump day here in Munich and all over the world, I've picked five happy neon finds that would add fun and joy to any home, don't you agree? 

What is your stance on neon hues? Do you actually have something neon coloured at home? I bought the NUD pendant light in a flashy pink for my hallway. I will add a cool Plumen bulb and my hallway will hopefully be happily welcoming new guests. Now I only have to fix it to the ceiling. But that is another story...

Happy hump day, friends!

  3. No neon for me! But liking your Plumen bulb in the hall welcome. Definitely my favourite bulb and perfect to show off with a great drop cap such as the NUD shown or Plumen's own - http://www.nest.co.uk/product/plumen-drop-cap-pendant-set.

  5. Hmmm not so sure. It's pretty difficult (imo) to use neon in a complementary way with any decor. Except other neon. And too much neon is no better than neon that clashes.

    Feel free to show me some images that prove I'm wrong though! I'd be interested to see how neon decor being used well.....

    1. I know it's not everyone's taste, but color lovers will definitely enjoy it. Here's a cool example: http://style-files.com/2011/09/23/trend-vibrant-colors

  6. You have the coolest lighting in Europe - we don't get those neon cords here for some reason....would be cool in a hallway!

  7. I love neon! I think it's a tad unfair to take an Ikea Frosta stool (http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/24286205/) paint it and then charge £50 for it though. Still, I am rather inspired to get a tin of neon paint and DIY now...
