Guest Picks: Neon Brights
I live in a loft in Brooklyn, a recent transplant to Greenpoint (love my neighborhood!). I work as a freelance writer, blogger, stylist, gilder, and crafter. I curate a daily personal lifestyle blog called the Haystack Needle (http://www.thehaystackneedleonline.com
). I'm also one half of the shop Cabin 7 (http://www.shopcabin7.com
) — a collection of gilded objects for the home. I started out in magazines, working in the home department of Real Simple magazine and later worked as the home editor of Redbook. I love to scout cool finds for the home — everything from an amazing loveseat to a green laundry detergent that really works. I'm a new mama to our baby girl, Juniper, who amazes me every day with her curiosity for life and big smiles.

Fluorescent colors used to make me think of homework — all those highlighted book passages that I needed to study. Thankfully, those school days are over and fluorescent colors aren't just for highlighter markers anymore. I'm a big fan of the home trend of neon bright accents — add a little electric pink, green, yellow or orange and you can really wake up a room.— Jen from The Haystack Needle
