Get This: Neon

Raise your hand if neon colors bring on nostalgic memories of snap bracelets and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles water bottles. Well, the children of the '80s are all grown up now and so is neon. Chartreuse, magenta, acid green, and blinding yellow have made their mature comeback in fashion, and now they're migrating over to home furnishings, waking up tablescapes and living rooms with color—glorious color.

Since this is the first week of summer, what better time to celebrate all that's brilliant and blazing? Get your sunglasses out for this roundup of brightly hued products for you and your home.

  1. Acid green very cool! I like the Herschel brand I've got 2 bags from them, nice details to them. Very 80's!
