AD. I was excited to take on the challenge when Frith rugs asked me to style up a Stranger Things style living room using one of their rugs.
I could have gone all dark and retro, like in the film, but I decided to put my own take on it.
Stranger Things is one our family’s favourite Netflix shows, set in the 1980s.
The 1980s was the era of the neon pop look and the colourful geometrics of the Memphis style movement. However, alongside these bold colours was also a trend for light pastel hues. I’ve decided to style my living room in the 1980s pastel look. I have kept the Stranger Things theme by recreating the alphabet wall with colourful lights seen in the show. To compliment my pastel theme, I have picked a pretty pink rug from Frith rugs.
It’s a 100% wool Indian lattice design rug. It comes in a variety of sizes. Frith rugs is a family owned business, since 1981. They sell a huge variety of rugs, handpicked and manufactured from their travels around the world.
You can find Persian rugs, to Afghan rugs, and classic styled rugs to contemporary rugs on their website. Basically there is a great collection to suit all tastes and budgets. When it comes to rugs from third world countries I always like to know if they are being sold ethically, and I’m pleased to find out that Frith rugs do this responsibly. I’ve had my pink Indian lattice design rug for a few weeks now, and can report that the quality is good. It’s soft, cosy and warm to walk on. There is no shedding or pilling of the carpet. It vacuums easily too. Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my take on a Stranger Things style living room.
I’ll be back soon with more posts in the New Year. Wishing you a wonderful 2020.
