left | My boyfriend recently picked up these Ernie Ball strings for his new guitar – love the retro font, really awesome packaging! These strings come in a whole spectrum of neon colours. They look so good altogether on display in the music shop.
right | I’ve always loved neon. There’s something about thrilling, electrifying hues that really get my heart racing. I especially love the contrast when paired with black, which makes for a very bold design (so the item above is exactly my cup of tea). And I’ve been really inspired by it lately. I mean, it’s everywhere, and you can’t really ignore it. So I’ve definitely embraced it again, and used it in some small paintings that I’m currently working on. A neon series, in fact. These will be available in my Etsy shop today. This one pictured, is about the size of a postcard.
So rev up the excitement factor in your life + inject a little neon fun! Be inspired by some of my favourite finds below (I’m dying over that rug, totally on my NEED list!). However, you must be warned: be prepared for some serious head-turning!
