Decorating with Neon

{via}

There’s no denying that neon is back with a vengeance, both in fashion and home decorating. Although I’d never recommend investing too much into trends, you don’t need to break the bank to get on the neon décor train—a coat of paint or small throw pillow can easily make a huge impact. My favorite application of neon is paired with deep gray backdrops, since the duo is subdued and vibrant all at once (yet seems much more modern than the tacky neon of the 80’s).

Gray steers your eye in the direction of the other colors present, which in turn allows you to appreciate the secondary hues. Plus, when you eventually grow tired of neon, you can swap in virtually any other color!

“Unlike white, grey treats all colour with respect. White makes them strong and strident. Grey makes them beautiful. Grey is a hard worker, the silent partner, content to be in the background.”

~Janice Lindsay, All About Colour

Even if you’re not feeling the whole neon craze, the power of gray to showcase a color should not be overlooked. But if you dare, go ahead and bring a little neon décor into your life!
