One of the design trends, I’ve seen popping up everywhere is the use of neon lights in interior design.
Whether it be a bedroom,an office, a restaurant, a patio, or a living room; there’s no limit to where you can place one.
I was reminded of this trend on a recent trip to San Francisco with my family. We visited the newly renovated San Francisco MOMA and one of the installations was by Bruce Nauman titled Life Death/Knows Doesn’t Know, it’s part of The Doris and Donald Fisher Collection at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and was created in 1983.
Here’s the piece in action:
1983, yet here we are in 2016 and neon is everywhere. Isn’t it interesting how trends always come back?
Why you should incorporate it into your home
What I love most about this trend it that it adds a touch of whimsy, color, and is a bold surprise to anyone that enters your abode. Whether the lights are on or off , they can add personality and fun to a space. I love that neon lights used to be outside and that we have brought them inside and given a twist to the status quo; and isn’t that what design is all about? Pushing boundaries, experimentation, and making a statement…
Words to live by
Your house should be a reflection of who you are, who you aspire to be,and what inspires you.
