Spring is the perfect time for adding few fresh new patterns to your decor scheme! Check out these 5 ways to update your space using playful polka dots:
1. Polka Dots on the Floor
An area rug (large or small!) with polka dots add movement and interest to any room. A rug with large polka dots, like the Concepts Circle Rug by Surya below, are great for giving rooms a bold modern look. Rugs with smaller circles, like this gray and blue Alto Steps Norther Lights Landing Rug by Liza Phillips Design, are great for adding a little subtle pattern to a space for a more sophisticated look.
2. Wall Polka Dots
If you want to give your room a really fun and playful look, try using a polka dot pattern on the walls! You could use a polka dot patterned wallpaper or go the easier route and paint your walls. Just take a circular wall stencil and paint dots where you like, either in a pattern or randomly across the wall. We love the gold wall polka dots in this dining room:
3. Polka Dots on the Sofa
The easiest and quickest way to add any new color or pattern to a living room is through small accessories. Try giving your sofa a fresh new look with a polka dot throw blanket or pillow. We love this modern Brown Dotscape Throw Pillow by Chooty & Co. and this soft neutral Thermosoft Top Spots Woven Throw Blanket by Bocasa.
4. Polka Dots in the Bedroom
Bedding is perfect for adding a little pattern to your home. You could use pattern as a bold focal point by using a polka dot bedspread or duvet cover or just add a little flirty touch of spots on sheets and pillowcases. India Rose has a selection of feminine and fun polka dot patterned bedding complete with spring colors and frills.
5. Dining on Dots
Add some fun flavor to your dining room by bringing polka dots to the dinner table. We love the colorful polka dot placemats and table runners from ecoaccents — they add a playful burst of color and pattern to mealtime. The best thing about placemats is how easy they are to switch out — you can change up your dining room’s look as often as you like!
