Colour blind

Neutral is out and bold, bright and daring colour is in.  

When it comes to being that bit more daring with your d├ęcor, start small and   build up.  For example, start with a really out there accessory like one of our exclusive Vibrance rugs and then select one or two others accessories that match a couple of colours in the rug.

In this striped rug for example, you could choose red as your accent colour – a throw, a red glass lamp and perhaps one red wall, would look great.  Using the spot themed rug you could not only select a colour that you like but also find other big round colourful accessories, such as round cushions or a pouffe. It’s  easy to create your own artwork too – how difficult can it be to paint a red dot in the colour of your choice and then put it in  frame?

The Ella Claire Vibrance range is only available at FrithRugs and has been especially commissioned to celebrate colour!

Nautical and nice

We are an island nation and so have a natural affinity with the water and perhaps that’s why we also love all things #nautical when it comes to #interior #design.

Up until a few years ago, we confined our nautical touches to the bathroom but now we are getting bolder with our nautical touches which we recognise can work really well in most rooms.   All you need are a few clever touches here and there but as with all themes – don’t go over-board (sorry we couldn’t resist!) as less is more.

First you need to introduce your main colour – which in this case really needs to be blue – choose any shade.  The blue could be on one wall or perhaps on one of your main accessories such as a rug and then select a few more fabrics and accessories such as a blinds or cushions.

Now just add in a few other well chosen pieces to complement the blue. These could be shells displayed in glass vases or in picture frames,

ropes used to display wall art, a lighthouse, framed maps, bowls of sand, lanterns, or some bunting.

We think nautical works particularly well in the bedroom and in a den or conservatory.  It’s great to bring the seaside in all year round and blue is a very calming colour.

We’ve got a great selection of rugs which would suit your nautical theme.
