Trend: Polka Dots

Modern Decor

Has anyone else noticed how many darn polka dot patterns are showing up in fashion and interiors lately? It seems like a ton. We mean just everywhere. How to do it the cool way and not look like a school kid? Well it looks like in fashion if you’re gonna do small dots, keep the colors serious. If you want to have color, do a big dot pattern.

In interiors, color’s okay, but don’t be conventional with your dot pattern. As a matter of fact, don’t think of things in such a 2D way; find products that explore the idea of dots on a 3D scale, like mobiles, different-colored plates (notNeutral – Melamine Trays being a perfect example) on a table or even a molecule binding set. And of course, you don’t even have to have multiple dots: Perch’s Walker Pendant Light fits the trend just find and only sports one big dot.
