Neon Signs Are Making A Come Back!

 Lately, I've been noticing a trend of neon signs being used in interior design. At first I kind of thought they were tacky, but then they grew on me, and now I absolutely love them! But where did this trend start, and when?

"It has almost been a century since the first neon sign was imported in the U.S. from Paris, where the first neon sign was lit up. Neon signs became popular from 1920-1960. They were often associated with billboard lights that we see at night. They were usually used to advertise hotels, bars, casinos, and other places of entertainment." - Neon ific.  

Now, neon signs are used in restaurants and other establishments as part of their interior aesthetic. And more recently they have been appearing in interiors of businesses and homes. But why? As it turns out neon signs photograph beautifully, and in this instagram generation that means a lot. 

So get ready to scroll through for some killer neon sign inspiration!

This Flat was designed by my friend  Sarah Akwisombe . I love the bold colors she used, paired with the geometric patterned floor, and toped off with a dope neon sign that reads good vibes only.
