We’ve yet to see the end of the neon trend, but lately we’ve been particularly inspired by projects that contrast bold neon with calm, classic materials. Think reclaimed wood or subtle gray walls with fun neon accents and you’ve got the right idea. This is a great combination for a kid’s room, where you want the decor to be current but not trendy- a pop of neon or two can add energy and a sense of fun.

And if you’d like neon in smaller doses, consider our wooden neon blocks or these adorable neon dipped plant pots. Both projects are simple enough for kids to make.

Low-commitment neon! A vinyl sticker in a vibrant color makes neon an accent color, not an overwhelming statement.

Neon tape shapes (via Charlotte Love)
What a great idea – using neon tape to make outlines on the wall. This designer made a house, but imagine a big neon sailboat or rocket ship on the wall… so fun.

This neon and gray “big girl” bedroom is full of delightful details, but the bright pillows are especially great- a good use of neon and a great example of pattern mixing.
