When you can’t rely on the sun, brighten up your interior instead. Inspired by fluorescent lights, festival culture and all things bright and beautiful, neon is a brave choice for those looking to add a pop of colour to their space. Whether it’s atomic orange accessories or electric yellow furniture, peppering your home with neon nuances promises to inject life and break up the neutrals. And it’s easier to achieve than you think. Wave goodbye to bland and bring on the brights, these are our top neon interior design ideas…
Atomic Orange Accents
Floor-to-ceiling neon? It’s not for the fainthearted. Start simple and dip your toe into the trend with a few splashes of colour here and there. Orange is a passionate & vibrant colour with deep, warming undertones, and although it’s bright it’s incredibly welcoming. So it’s perfect for the bedroom. Break up the look with complementing hues (dark tones work best to offset the eye-catching orange) and introduce a variety of patterns and textures to create a positive environment you’ll love to wake up in.
Electric Yellow Furniture
The best seat in the house? It’s bright yellow and unashamedly bold. Furniture is one of the easiest ways to embrace the neon trend as it lets you play with colour and pattern without any long-term commitments. And this is especially true in the dining room. As one of the rooms in your home where you spend the least amount of time, the dining room is the perfect space to experiment with colours when you’re feeling brave. Bring the sunshine in with electric yellow dining chairs and offset their vibrancy with monochrome soft furnishings. Scatter pops of colour in the form of candles and dinnerware and complete the scheme with plenty of fresh greenery to bring tropical vibes, whatever the weather.
Your Cue to Clash
Highlighter yellow, shocking pink and lime green. These head-turning hues are special in their own ways, but splash them together and they’ll brighten up your home as well as your mood. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours in one space, this is an exercise in colour and pattern clashing and it can’t be ignored. Stripes, zigzags and tassel detailing bring structure and depth to even the most minimal of settings, but experiment with different geometrics to find a look that suits your space. However you clash, be bold and confident in your choices and you’ll create a look you love.
Get the Glow with Neon Lighting
The days of ‘90s neon kitsch are gone. Neon lighting is back with a bang and it’s highlighting our interiors in all the right ways. Whether it’s the home bar or the bedroom, make your favourite space a focal point with statement lighting that’s made to stand out.
