neon & neutral

Alright kids- so you have realized that neon is here to stay for awhile, right? Well if not, it's time to get on board. And this is my oh so favorite way to do it- neon & neutral! You see especially for some of us, uh-hem, past a certain age, we don't want to revisit the follies of our youth. (nor should you! Bad eighties, bad!) Let's not call Neon's past a mistake, let's call it an unfortunate overuse. For now we've learned restraint. And we know a little goes a looooong way (don't we.) Leave the head to toe lime green, and fuchsia painted room to the 14 and 15 year olds. They need something to look back on and regret too, mmmkay?

You see, neon works best when it surprises, not shouts. Pair it with cool brown and grey neutrals. Simple linens and craft paper. When used with classic unfussy silhouettes, it's divine.

And if you are ever looking for a super neon fix, just check out this. Mesmerizing.
