Finally, I can share! Over a month ago now, HGTV contacted me to share some of my photos from the Color-Blocked Neon Rope Basket that I was featured on Design*Sponge. We talked back and forth, and HGTV wanted more ideas on how to incorporate neon into home decor. It is the trend of the season! ;)
I wanted to make the most of the opportunity, so I brainstormed a bunch of ideas and asked a good friend of mine, Kate from Portland Flea, to see if I could do a little photo shoot at her house. We had a blast and I think the photos came out really well!
In the end, the "feature" was three photos included in a article entitled "20+Ways to Decorate Your Home with Neon", but I'm more than thrilled to have been a part of the process and I learned loads throughout this process. The article consists of 21 different ideas and photos, scroll through the slide show and you can find my three photos that I contributed.
Here's a few of the photos that didn't make it and a little more about the process.
I knew that I wanted to make something for this photo shoot, so I got to work at piecing together a little pillow. I chose a vibrant neon pink and some neutrals. and pieced together an improvisational log cabin block. The vase was a last minute idea. I had bought some knee highs from Target and I loved the look of them. I wanted to include them but at first I couldn't figure how... finally I tried out putting the sock on a vase and I loved the look! Cut off the foot of the sock, and viola!
Finally, here is a bigger shot of the dining room table set-up. This was my favorite part. I loved making the table decorations and setting the table. It made me what have dinner parties! Now if only I could get the cooking part down... ;)
