If you’ve also been caught up in the Stranger Things phenomenon, you might be intrigued by the idea of doing a Stranger Things bedroom. You’ll get a quick kickstart with a new line of bedding that can serve as the basis for it.
The bedding includes a lot of black and gray with touches of red, which may or may not be the way you want to go, but the abundance of neutrals does make it easy to add other colors. I do like the way they’ve incorporated the whole concept of the Upside Down. On the comforter, what you first take to just be red lines actually are trees, the demagorgon and a running Will, the flip side of the kids riding their bicycles.
One quick and easy option for decorating the walls would be the Christmas light alphabet Joyce sets up to communicate with Will in the first series. It has the benefit of being large and dramatic, not to mention making the theme perfectly and instantly clear. I’m not entirely sure the bedding options outside of the blanket with the kids’ faces do that as well.
Other items that would work nicely to use in the decor for this theme but wouldn’t be explicitly released as Stranger Things decor (such as posters, etc.):
- 80s toys
- banana bicycle seat, bicycle wheels or handlebars
- Christmas lights
- morse code poster
- blanket fort
- Eggo waffle
- a sheriffs hat
