Welcome to the glorious world of neon acrylic box lights.  Gaining in popularity and originating from commercial premises before finally entering our homes, they aim to surprise and delight. Fun, quirky and often surprising, they bring a sense of the unorthodox into our homes.  From wording to imagery, you can’t beat a neon acrylic light for bringing the playfulness into your décor.

We all need some fun, and possibly some shock tactics in our styling, for that extra bit of uniqueness, and there’s no quicker way than lighting up your room in neon glowing colour.  And we love the awesome pink glow from our Lips Neon Acrylic Box Light.  We also love to see what our customers do with our products, and how they style them, so we’ve brought you our Lips Neon Acrylic Box Light styled 9 ways –  7 from our fabulous customer photos and 2 of our own.

Pink and teal eclectic living room with geometric wallpaper and velvet furniture

If you love pink and teal, splashes of bright colour and lashings of gold, then you’re going to love this house. A fabulously daring home that effortlessly mixes colour and pattern. Cara lives in Wolverhampton with her husband Andy, who is a builder. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to have a builder in the family! A willing builder of course, then all your dreams could come true – well house dreams anyway.

Cara and Andy have transformed this tired 1930’s house into a warm, welcoming home, and it’s all documented on Cara’s blog Caradise, and there are some great ideas on there to give you inspiration. It’s always interesting to see the before and after’s of a home renovation. The possibilities are endless – if you know a good builder!

DIY gravel patio to create the feel of a Mediterranean courtyard, with colourful garden furniture and outdoor rug

My courtyard garden is the perfect size for 2 non-gardeners, but it was so depressing and uninspiring.  When we first moved in 2 years ago it was overgrown and tired, but we’ve completely transformed it with our DIY gravel patio.  

The first step was to call in Henry (my brother, the gardener) for a quick makeover, so we could at least have some patio to sit on.  He trimmed back all the evergreens on the right-hand side and cleared out all the remaining greenery to make the space bigger. So, we had a bigger space, but not much of it usable.

Contemporary kitchen design with navy blue cupboards and brass handles

We love house tours – who doesn’t want to see into other peoples homes? For all us interior’s geeks it’s a chance to spark up some inspiration for our own homes, from colour, to styling, to practical solutions. Colour is the biggest issue for most of us – what colours make us feel happy and cosseted? Well, Angie, an interiors stylist from the north west of England loves navy blue interiors! The whole house is a homage to blue in its varying tones, with amazing pops of colour and pattern to liven up the mix.

Today we bring you 10 unusual painted wall ideas with inspirational pics of ways to transform a room in a more affordable way.  I was vaguely aware of this trend for painting shapes on walls to create visual interest, but not being a user of social media, I hadn’t quite realised the fabulous affects you can achieve.  Luckily for us Amelia is in the throes of house renovation and has trawled the web for ideas.

Oh I do love Amelia’s vibrant mood boards, and today she has put together 3 living room colour schemes to give your home the wow factor. If you’re not a fan of pink look away now. Being a massive fan of pink I’m in my element. I did try to move away from pink for a few years (and over to the dark side), but I’m not happy and so I am also moving swiftly on, back to my default setting of pink. Let’s start with the fullest of full on pink to get you in the mood.

Pink & teal tropical bathroom inspiration - with monochrome vinyl flooring, pink tiles, tropical wallpaper and lush house plants.

At last, another room about to be completed in my house, our tropical bathroom.  If you read my previous blog you will know this is my first house (a small Victorian terrace), with my boyfriend Tom, and I’m so exciting to finally be able to bring together all my ideas.  And to be styling rooms, as opposed to room sets for Audenza, and of course, to be able to bring home lots of Audenza goodies!

We have a really nice big bathroom, but it’s very bland and the shower is quite old and grimy!  Not quite the luxury retreat I envisaged for our first bathroom.  I find mood boards really helpful, so I put one together for our bathroom renovation.  An extravagant, tropical bathroom in pink and teal, with black accents to make it more striking.

I love a gallery wall but, ooh I do find it difficult.  I have a small one in my bedroom above a turquoise chest of drawers that I love, but I had a particularly disastrous one in my garden room a few years ago that I think put me off attempting it again on a large wall.   On analysing the ones that I’m drawn to they are a mixture of artwork, photo’s, and objects such as plates, mirrors, wall sconces and greenery.  I like the contrasts.

So, for those of you out there, who like me are struggling, we bring you our top 10 gallery walls inspiration.  And even if you have nailed it, it’s always intriguing to see what others have done.  We have also included some tips on how to achieve the look from the owners of gallery walls that we love.
