A touch of neon…

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.

10 DIY / CRAFT PROJECTS to add charm, character and panache to your abode…

I must admit, I haven’t had time to try any of these projects and I won’t pretend I have. However I have spent many minutes thinking about doing them, and I will get round to it soon, so surely that deserves a few points. Anyway below are 10 of my favourites, including some copper (you know how I LOVE COPPER…), flowery chandeliers & also some organizational tricks (very practical). Now, some of them are just inspiration for something that I believe could be easily achievable with a few tools and the use of ones noggin, whilst others are full blown tutorials from some fabulous bloggers.

Enjoy!

Interior Design Trend : Leopard Accents

One Interior Design trend I simply can’t get enough of is leopard print. There are certain conditions or rules though…

1. Less is more – Leopard overload is a one way ticket from tasteful to tacky.

2. Subtle tone – a garish print or the wrong shade is a NO. My favourites tend to be muted and skewed towards brown and neutral tones (not orange and certainly not any brightly coloured variations)

3. Furry? – If your going for the faux fur look it has to be high quality, cheap faux fur is just wrong

Interior design trend: Crazy About Copper…

My latest Fixation has got to be copper home accessories. I Also have a new found cause of sorrow- my bedroom ceiling is too low for one of Tom Dixon’s beautiful spherical copper light fixtures.

Here are some of my favourite pinterest pics, along with a selection of copper products I wish I could afford.

Bonne Chance!

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.

All the Best, TATTY LACE
