Not since my neon-themed slumber party in 1984 did I ever think fluorescent colors would enter my closet (much less my home) ever again. Flash forward a couple of decades and I find myself coveting many of spring's fashion trends — neon, pastels, mixed prints, color-blocking — for my apartment.
But while many of them hint at the decade when I grew up, they have a decidedly more refined look. It might be because they've been reintroduced with a little more subtlety: neon on a neutral surface pales in comparison (in a good way) to the stop-light-yellow, oversized sweatshirt I wore to that party. And while the mention of a lavender rug with pink pillows might sound as chic as the overalls-clad Easter Bunny, it looks pretty and elegant in the room above.
Take a peek and share what you think: are you inspired to capture these trends in your home? Executed with a wee bit of restraint, they could make a fresh, definitely not-boring statement in any room.
