Norwegian ceramicist Silje Aune Eriksen is drawn to, as she puts it, "things that shout a little louder." This is patently obvious when you take a look at her kitchen.

Featured in the March issue of Elle Decor Norway, Eriksen's sunny loft apartment is highlighted with fluorescent orange. In her interiors, clothing, and ceramics, Eriksen likes to "keep it simple…but when it comes to color, I like it bright." We particularly like Eriksen's kitchen, which has inflicted us with a kind of fluoro-fever and sent us on the hunt for neon details.
