Design Sleuth: A Blush-Colored Neon Tube Light

February 12, 2016

It wasn’t until we visited Dosa designer Christina Kim’s downtown LA loft that we collectively developed an intense longing for all things salmon pink. From dish sponges to linens, Kim carefully accents the concrete space with blush tones.

Her bathroom, for example, is lit by pink fluorescent tube lights designed with hardware parts by architect Lindon Schultz. A few of us at Remodelista have had “build pink tube lamp” jotted on our to-do lists ever since, and earlier this week, we stumbled across a tempting ready-made version for under $200.
