Look What's Trending Now!

I thought I was on a spring break vacation last week -wow! It was a hot one! I think I only was only inside to sleep. I knew this week was going to be chilly so I put off my kitchen remodel work and allowed myself a week of working my butt off pruning, raking, mulching and getting so sunburned that I couldn't sleep at night- when will I ever learn!

Back to the title of today's post: "Look What's trending Now"

Neons

If you are wondering how to change up your decor a bit for spring it's easy! Add a splash of neon color. What I've noticed this year, that is different from previous years, is that the neons are not highlighter marker neon- they are classier than that. They are tangerines and jewel tones like amethyst and turquoise. They are the perfect compliment to the more refined old meets new style that is emerging.

 A little bling mixed in with natural materials and textures is "the look" 
and it really is fun!


 
Notice the small details- a brightly colored frame, lime green matted prints 
and of course fresh flowers to finish the vignette.

Simply adding a couple of brightly colored pillows transforms the look but it's that little Greek key border on the pink pillow that connects both bright pillows with the rest of the space.

Add a brightly colored book or some neon candies in a cut crystal bowl to a "tablescape" and that will do the trick.

Gray, oh beautiful gray, my favorite neutral, is the perfect backdrop for this new neon trend and if you ever wanted to use orange as part of your decorating scheme- now is the time!

  4. About as far as I can go with neon is orange, my favorite color! Like you we were hot last week up near eighty degrees, this week it's freezing and this morning its been icing...nice! Dylan dog's hair is covered in ice and when it shook it off it sounded like bells so not all bad!

    Enjoy your day!
