Hot neon island decor

Are we ready for 2001 Space Odyssey decor?

Thinking about the movie, “2001 Space Odyssey”, I can’t help but think of modern rooms….but our 21 century is so different than the movie portrayed, since most of us still want to display our collectables, art, and inherited items.  I created this board by merging space odyssey with our 2012 lifestyles.  Why not go with a bright kitchen island…surely nobody else will have one like yours.  To bring a modern island back down, I mixed earthy elements such as wood and floral decor.  I brought in turquoise to compliment the neon yellow.  Gold and silver lighting and accessories works in any home style, think of these two colors as neutrals.  No matter what your style is you can’t go wrong with modern art.  I say, bigger is better.  Don’t forget to add something living in your space, even if it’s fresh cut flowers from your yard.  Time to take a ride to the moon, oh only in the movies.

This Spring everyone needs a neon piece, big or little, neon is where it’s at.  I’ve been lusting after this yellow-green neon color for awhile until now.  This is the neon piece I want to wear as the cut is classic and the length isn’t too short or too long but perfect.  Not only does this color popping dress fit my fancy, I can actually see a lot of women wearing it.  To prove my point, I put two looks together that play with the spring trends of using ‘peach’

 

This Spring everyone needs a neon piece, big or little, neon is where it’s at.  I’ve been lusting after this yellow-green neon color for awhile until now.  This is the neon piece I want to wear as the cut is classic and the length isn’t too short or too long but perfect.  Not only does this color popping dress fit my fancy, I can actually see a lot of women wearing it.  To prove my point, I put two looks together that play with the spring trend of adding a pop color, I know the dress is the pop, but to balance the feeling of the dress, I added hot pink to the event night look and peach to the date night look.  What are you waiting for…. go get that neon piece and work it!

Hello Style

There are so many styles to add to your wardrobe this Spring…. where to start?  My suggestion, pick a couple new trends that you are drawn to and add them to your current clothing.

Spring Trends Breakdown:  Neons, florals, mix and match patterns, poplum, pencil skirt, wedge shoes, metallics, chunky colorful necklaces, mint and coral clothing, and pink lips.

If you just don’t know where to start, I suggest go with one new Neon item such as a belt and add it to your jeans, or around that dress or shirt.  You can do the same trick with Metallic shoes or belt.  Also, anyone call pull off wedge shoes.  There are no rules to these shoes, they can go with just about anything!

Stay away from trying mix and match patterns as it is a lot harder unless you go to the store and buy the entire outfit from the spring collection matchy match section.  Boring, but if you just have to do it, beware you may end up looking like you didn’t have your glasses on that morning.

If you are skinny or curvy and like to have your shirts tucked in, then go for that pencil skirt otherwise, run.  It’s all about elongating your lower half and keeping things up top simple, with a crisp button up shirt or with a tucked in T and a jean jacket that falls at the waits.  Keep the proportions up top either tucked in or short, otherwise this look can go wrong quickly!

My faithful spring go to items are, a trench coat, floral scarf, skinny belt and ballerina flats.  To stay on top of the trends, I added my mother-in-laws two tone blue chuncky plastic beaded necklace, a neon T, and wedge shoes.  I’m not a fan of mint clothing but I will paint my nails this springy green color.

Don’t forget to lighten your makeup colors.  Leave the smoky eyes out for awhile and go with pastels…eyeshadow, cheeks and lips!

Have fun with these spring trends and be quick, because just when you finally figure it out, it will be summer and we’ll have new trends to follow!
