I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Copenhagen recently (new favorite city?): While wandering through the shops I noticed an abundance of fluorescent colors, especially at Hay, which offers tea towels and linens by neon-happy Dutch designers Scholten & Baijings. Here's a roundup of some interiors featuring dashes of fluorescence:
