Creative Space: Neon crazy

I've officially embraced my inner fluorescence.. just can't seem to get enough 
of this glaring garish colour. What is it about this?


I just love it - so fresh and fun and alive!


I'm certifiably neon crazy :) 
Hopefully these will all make it to the shop one day soon.


For more creative confessionals and inspiring spaces, pop over here.

(Just as a curio... the top photo is with my regular camera and the bottom two 
are Instagram shots... funny how the Insta captures the neon but the regular 
dulls it, yes...? Any clever-sticks out there know why?)

  1. yay for neon!
    about your question, is because there's a digital filter applied to the app? while in the regular digital shot you can work that out with photoshop to have more dept in the fluorescence I guess. But if you use an analog then you can use areal filter and have most probably the same effect.

  2. I am suffering similarly. I think I have a post even two years ago where I had caught the neon bug and it only intensifies (have you caught a peek into the Sass and Bide store? They do great displays with neons at the moment). I love what you are doing with it - looks fantastic with the neutrals. Is that circular one going to be a cushion??? Wish I had your talent!

    ps have thought Winona thing through - we shouldn't let it come between our friendship - how about you are Winona for the shoplifting and obscurity phase and I will be Winona for the Johnny Depp/Matt Damon phase? :)

    1. Thanks Jo :) Yes, I have already been eyeing the Sass and Bide goodies - the neon thing is seriously addictive!
      Yes, there are three cushions in the making there - a circular, an isometric and a fabric in the same colour tones.
      I have Cecil B deMille syndrome at the moment - making it look like I produce colourway collections! haha :)

      Okay, Winona olive branch humbly accepted... I can cope with being the obscure shoplifter ;)
      Cut about missing out on Johnny Depp but I'll cope by nimbly thieving something from Sass and Bide! ;)

  3. After some scary early 90's attire, I didn't think I'd ever like neon again. I have to say though, it's growing on me! Love the color combo you're working with.

    1. Haha! Thanks for this - I do understand... I feel the same way about 80s fashions (never going there again!) Kx

  4. Such a flash back!!! I remember wearing neon socks to my very first disco.
    It sure is a safety colour! I'm not sure how I feel about it... but this week I was sewing with neon orange thread which was super easy to clean up afterwards... even in the dark!!!

  7. Love, love the neon!
    And as to colours, I would blame differing camera colour profiles, too.

  14. I like it too, in certain applications. I'm a little afraid of reliving the 80s, but that fluoro sneaks into my heart sometimes. :)
