Nordic pastels and neons

For those of you with IKEA furniture (err, anyone out there who doesn't own a piece?!) you'll be as excited as I am about Swedish store Bemz and their latest Collection: Nordic Pastels. Bemz promises to give your IKEA sofa, chairs, cushions etc a new lease of life with custom made textiles in the latest spring colours, just add a lick of neon paint! Bemz actually makes me want to go out and buy an IKEA sofa just so I can cover it in apricot fabric and paint the legs neon yellow, what?


How about painting your bed / sofa / chair legs in hot neon for a super cool, super quick make-over?

It's a bank holiday here today so I'm off to enjoy the sunshine with my family, I'm tempted to run passed the paint shop too....:)

A white, wood and neon loft space

Back in Scandinavia I thought I'd go all out white and wood today. But with a twist. Neon lighting. YAAAAY! This fab loft space in Canada belongs to fashion blogger and stylist Katharine Horsman and was photographed by Janis Nicolay for House and Home. I'm still drooling over the natural wood kitchen table. And of course the neon lighting over the bed - very very cool.

Can't get a proper idea just how fab it is from the pics? Well, guess what - there's a video of this home too!

Have a lovely evening!

Illuminate me here - are you a 'neon forever' type? Or is it more something you'd love to someone elses home?!
