Get Glowing with Neons + Brights


From 80s fashion and roller rinks to glow sticks and the iconic blinking signage that started it all, neon hues have always been the life of the party. Today, neon is new again – the electric lime greens, hot pinks, fluorescent yellows, and ultra-bright blue shades are popping up all over the design world in everything from lighting and decor to candles and furniture. The bright, energizing shades bring instant fun, whimsy, and a pinch of dance party goodness to any spot in the house (which frankly we could all use more of!). And you needn’t turn your home into a makeshift night club to get your neon fix either, because there are plenty of ways to put the trend into practice in your space – read on for our favorites. For more bright and neon finds, visit the Design Milk Shop!

 

quiet town curtain

A space full of easy to swap accessories, the bathroom is an easy place to experiment with new design trends, and especially with neon. Quiet Town’s Sun Shower Orient Pool Shower Curtain has a simple, color blocked design featuring a green top and a hand-stitched panel of neon yellow at the bottom. Hand-sewn and accented with brass grommets and nickel finishes, the transparent, heavy vinyl lets the light pour into your shower as you bathe, without ever “sticking” to you while you do your thing. Use it as a liner alongside one of Quiet Town’s canvas curtains or on its own to brighten up your bathroom.
