Home accent and upholstery in neon is a good experiment and the pop of color is absolutely fun. Love it! hope you are as inspired :o)

An easy makeover for old furniture with surface damages. Paint them a bright color and it will get the deserved attention. Mid century design was never looked funkier!


Modern color palette of Gray with pops of neon. Using bright colors for accent on a neutral base makes for interesting points of attention. Buy Ikea furniture and consider customizing them. Good value :)


The cuteness of these stools aside love the delicate setup! Neon is so eye catching that even hints of it can transform any corner. You don't have to go big to bring some neon into your lives.


So colorful! Bright and comfortable, this is the perfect relaxing nook. It looks fabulous against the stark white backdrop and instantly warms up the place. Must for those white winters for me :)


Neon colors don't always have to be in the face. Sometimes a piped down version is really attractive. Coral and soothing brown bedding is super stylish. It adds an edgy flair to the bedroom decor.


Hopelessly smitten by mid-century modern. Intense use of turquoise, and yet its coral red that makes all the difference. Gorgeous Pyrex and Catherine Holm enamelware must be feeling right at home!


Accent wall with eye popping colors! Wonderful combination of blue and apple green, so unusual and very striking. If you have it in you, go for a transformation, reupholster and rejuvenate.


Modern contemporary kitchen design with hints of neon yellow. An alternative for those looking for a urban chic inspiration. Gray and yellow combination has featured here before.


Splash of so many colors! This living room is so gorgeous, it radiates cheer. Perfect for those who don't shy away from colors and love to experiment. This surely is fabulous!


As always, try experimenting with small decorative stuff before committing money and time on a larger project. Neon is a still quite in trend. Do consider!
