Neon On my Mind

May 2, 2012 at 5:34 AM 3 comments

For Christmas, my sister-in-law gave Graham a pair of tickets to Coldplay.  This was an awesome gift idea as he has loved Coldplay ever since he saw them while studying abroad in Copenhagen; he saw them in a small gym, before they are who they are now.  I was happy that Graham was thrilled with the gift.  But, I’ve got to be honest that my feelings were only slightly elevated from dread to go.  I know, I know, poor me, I had to “suffer” through a Coldplay concert.

But, I have to admit as those tickets sat magnetized to our refrigerator, I would shudder a little when my eyes would happen upon them as I opened the freezer for ice-cream.  Concerts aren’t really my thing.  I enjoyed them in high school and college but that wasn’t exactly for the music.  As this Saturday rolled around, it was time to put my game face on and go fake a good time with my hubby.

When we arrived at the San Jose arena, we were given a neon wristband and were told to wear it as it was part of the show.  The neon addition to my outfit was perking me up for sure.  We then got some beer and popcorn (major plus) and headed to our seats.  After the two, not so enjoyable, first acts, the arena went dark and the crowd started cheering.  All of sudden, the entire arena’s neon wrist bands lit up.  It was pure magic to watch a sea of neon pink, green and yellow.  I was in color heaven.  Coldplay came onstage and played their hearts out.  I never sat down, I never stopped singing, and I never stopped smiling.  It was amazing!!  A true spectacle of a show and the best concert I have ever been to.

The neon got me to thinking of interiors; here are some places I’m thinking Coldplay would be into…

I can’t say that I’ll be suggesting neon to any clients but the rooms do have a lot of vibrant energy to them, as did the concert.  Could you do neon in your home?

    Neon is so in right now, I think the colors look great in the rooms. I’m sure you’d grow tired of it though. But it is definitely a fun trend!
