Forget pastels, neutrals, and any other kind of understated decor for that matter, it’s time to go bright, really bright – it’s time to go neon. Despite what you may think, neon colours aren’t just for 80s themed nightclubs, oh no, they’re so much more than that. Whether you use them sparingly or generously, they can energise a space and give it a fresh feel. Just take a look at these fantastic neon decorating ideas.
If your eyes can take it, there’s really no need to skimp on the neon love fest. It’s a bold option, and great if you’re wanting to create a fun, lively environment in your home.
From the yellow sofa, to the blue table, to the fluorescent pink geometric designs on the wall, the room above goes all out with a variety of neon colours.
Are you looking to inject just the smallest hint of neon into a space? Then some neon coloured washi tape wrapped around the legs of a chair or table should do the job.
In fact you can use washi tape pretty much anywhere in your home. It’s available in a variety of colours, and can really liven up a space when used on furniture or walls.
Neon colours, as with any bright or bold shade, are useful for breaking up the monotony of a space. Even a single item, like the simple frame bookshelf above, can be effective.
Neon colours work best and are at their most dramatic when combined with neutral shades. This approach gives the neon colour even more impact, much like the neon green door above, which really stands out against the grey background.
The decorating approach in this bedroom is quirky, but when you’re using an unconventional colour in a space, like neon yellow, you really don’t have to stick to the rules!
Do something unexpected with the neon colour of your choice – yes there’s always the option of an accent wall, but what about an accent floor instead?
As a statement colour, there’s no better choice than neon yellow, pink, blue, green, or any other neon colour for that matter. If you’re brave enough that is!
White bathrooms can look fantastic, but adding a pop of colour will give the space visual impact. The neon green bath above gives the room a whole other dimension.
This kitchen is proof that neon colours don’t have to be limited to modern or wacky spaces. The room is thoroughly vintage in it’s style, but the neon pink chairs give it a fresher feel.
Pick something in your home to paint neon – a wall, a door frame, a chair, a mirror frame, the skirting boards, anything really. It will make your room a lot more interesting.
