CIY: fluoro accents go pop

Our interns at ELLE DECORATION have been trying out a few things with fluoro and neon. On their travels, they also found these wonderful inspirational ideas (scroll down) on the beautiful blog of Harriet Goodall, a weaver of extraordinary objects.

 

We’re a heartbeat away from the arrival of spring, and feeling the need to call in some brightness. Big time.
