Obsession with Polka Dots

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Aug 20, 2013 | No Comments | Category: Uncategorized

The polka dot.  It’s been around for years and apparently it’s one of this season’s biggest trends.  Has it ever gone out of trend?  I remember wearing polka dots as a kid and for the longest time I thought of them as playful and juvenile.  As an adult I went through my phases, a polka dot skirt here and a polka dot scarf there, but  it never quite phased me why I was choosing to wear these things or if they were trendy.  The polka dot was just there and available.  It’s a simple statement yet these days seems so sophisticated and fresh and apparently has lasting power.   Therefore, I have a new obsession with the polka dot.  Whether it’s in my wardrobe,  a fabric or a fun piece of art I find myself drawn in and wanting more.  Am I a victim of this trend or have I always loved the polka dot?

The polka dot is perfect with a pair of jeans but you can mix it with just about anything – especially a coordinating stripe or solid

This fabric would coordinate nicely with a larger floral or ethnic print

The perfect size table and chairs and enough room for the bar which makes your guests happy!

Plenty of options for styles, shapes and finishes

They’ve scaled down the sofas so you can still have the look while keeping everything in proportion.  Don’t be afraid to use oversized lamp shades, however.  They make a great statement!

As you can see there’s a lot you can work with to make your small space just as stylish as those who have extra square footage.  Time for that makeover you’ve been dreaming about.. and don’t forget to look at their art – they’ve got some game changers in that department :)
