This Post is dedicated to the neon interior design trend. The most sucessful inspiration images I have uncovered use the trend sparingly, using small accessories or artwork to add an injection of colour into an otherwise neutral scheme. Of course there are exceptions, for example the eccentric home of Australian artist Damien Downey — reflective of his artwork, his interior design scheme pairs bold neons with softer pastels to great effect.
Here are a selection of inspiration images, some favourite neon products & “mood boards” to illustrate ways of creating the look @ home.
Today has been a lovely day spent antique hunting with my parents. My first time to the idyllic Gloucestershire town of Tetbury was certainly no disappointment, with a fab stock of antique shops, most of which had migrated from the beautiful georgian town of Bath, as the shop rental prices rocketed. Purchases today included three beautiful oversized glass jars filled with a wonderful selection of shells, a set of french blue glass tumblers & and a a small impressionist painting.
For Lunch we stopped at The Chefs Table, a beautiful bistro specialising in simple, rustic French dishes. We then drove home to Oxfordshire through the snow, just in time for my dad to watch the England V France rugby match.. and to do some online fantasy house hunting in the Tetbury area!

Apologies for the delay in posting, I’ve been busy celebrating my 22nd birthday & writing assignments for my final year at Cardiff Business school in Wales. Todays post has been inspired by the dire aesthetic surroundings I find myself in and is thanks to another days dreaming about moving to my own home and escaping the ghastly student lifestyle I have become accustomed to.
