I don't know why this week I have been on the search for all kinds of different neon signage and letterings. I find them absolutely beautiful and hypnotic like a pink sky. The amount of images you can find of all these interesting quotes in neon is endless (like I can be sitting in my bed for three hours). I found myself looking for the prettiest ones or the ones that I loved best (hence the three hours). I did not only find one sign that I liked best but a collection of images showing different lighting and feelings (yeah I got deep).
I find it mesmerizing how you can look at one of these and feel happy and another one can make you feel hopeful or distraught (it's like a rollercoaster of emotions that kept me up until 2 am). The best part of them are how pretty they look (yeah so what it's superficial) all in neon shades or monochromatic and elegant. I am actually obsessed (I want everything in neon lights from now on).
I don't blame myself either. I have always been known to almost drive my car onto the sidewalk whenever I saw big neon signs in front of buildings (New York City was an intense experience). I just want to take them all with me and live in an fluorescent illuminated space (not actually tho, remember Kramer and the chicken sign, no bueno). I know this may be a trend that has been popular for a while (like hello 2015) but I think we are getting into a more subdued neon look. More minimal and dual toned (which I like) and less busy (too much at once and it gives you a head ache).
So for now, enjoy my finds and let me know if you have one that you love so I can appease my obsession even more. I don't bite (hard).
Obsessed and confessed.
