This neon sign says ‘breathe’ in French. It’s in the perfect corner to take a breather too, with the gorgeous wallpaper and gold pouf and table. Without the neon, the room would look more bohemian but a lot less modern.
How is this for an inventive artwork? A wall hanging with a faded print and punchy neon letters – that’s a marvellous combination. Without the neon, the room would look rather moody; the letters give it a rock‘n’roll injection.
Of course, a real neon sign would be amazing on your walls also. Or, should you have one, by your pool. If not, just imagine how this picture will look in your house. Not the same, but pretty nice too.
What’s more festive than cocktails? Put your house in a permanent ‘it’s the weekend!’ mood with an image with that magic word
in neon. Sultansofswag.com sells the fabulous print, that will also look great next to your collection of spirits.
Not that we would be tempted to get into the bath fully clothed, but that print is pretty great. It transforms a basic monochrome bathroom into a glamorous place with a Miami vibe. Of course, the beautiful tropical plant helps too. The print is by Etsy shop onetwoprintme.
Have your home office greet you every day with a sign saying just how gorgeous you are. Good mood for the next 24 hours guaranteed. This fantastic combination of a palm leaf print and neon letters is by Wonder Walls Studio.
This image of the beach by Ruby and B is in itself delightful and relaxing to look at. But add ‘Relax’ in pink neon letters and it’s even better. The lovely lamp in the same shade of pink is a nice touch.
Amsterdam restaurant Betty Blue serves lovely breakfast, lunch and cake. And while you eat, it boosts your confidence with a neon sign that says ‘You are spectacular’. Thank you Betty! That is one inspiring interior.

Old entomology illustrations in poster sizes will look fabulous in an eclectic interior. Use them as a starting point for a colour scheme, as was done here. The colours of the insects are reflected in the wall paint and accessories.
Framed butterflies are the prettiest objects. Not too fond of the real thing? Prints will look just as good. Especially combined with antique paintings, vintage prints and – look at that! – framed plants.
Do you fear a room could look too girly? Stick a few monochrome posters of beetles on the wall. They will form a cool contrast to the softness of the pinks, birdcage and flowers.
An insect print will look cool in a little corner full of unique finds: cross-stitch roses, an ornate tea kettle and a pretty slipper. Assemble some interesting objects and try creating a similar set-up yourself.
What’s better than an old didactic school poster? Lots of them! Combine several insect prints with a collection of plant posters for a fabulous wall gallery
. These ones are by Dutch brand Sissy Boy.
Make nature the main theme for your interior, by not only having a wonderful array of potted plants but also a lovely collection of insect wall art. Choose natural materials for the furniture, floor and rugs as well.
Daredevils might want to go for an insect wallpaper, like this one by Onszelf. It’s an eye-catcher, that’s for sure. With walls full of shiny black crawlies, the rest of the room can be kept simple. These accessories in natural colours do the trick.
Phylliidae are insects that mimic the shapes of leaves. That’s pretty ingenious. Put a print of one of these crazy creatures on your wall (like this one by SlapDash Papery) and you’ll be able to study their amazing shape every day.
