Neon

I love color- really vivid, juicy color. That’s why I have taken such a liking to the neon trend. Neons can be too wild but they don’t have to be. Many associate neon with the ’80’s but now neon is being used in a whole new way.  A bright cocktail ring can jazz up a simple dress or a neon belt can make a sophisticated pair of slacks and blouse fun. Using it in small doses creates the best effect. Painting a small piece of furniture (such as a desk or chair) a bright or neon color can give it new life. Pair with softer cordinating colors or neutrals for a polished feel. If you’re afraid of painting a piece of furniture start off with items on your desk such as a hot pink paper organizer. Some of my favorite brights are below. Please tell me what your favorite way to use neon is! Thanks. -J
