With summer heating up New York, neon fashions are hitting the sidewalks — but can neon be used to accent a home? Would DayGlo décor fit my pre-war brownstone? A dose of bold neon can turn an ordinary setting into a work of art. Suddenly my traditional living room looks like it belongs on display at the New Museum. Or at the very least, like I belong in Williamsburg. Check out these bright ideas...
