Could This Pattern Be The Next Big Trend?
You see it on the runway all the time and if you’re a fan of Yayoi Kusama, you probably like this pattern already. Polka dots have been around for centuries and it’s about time we let this pattern in our homes. We know, polka dot is not the first thing that comes in mind, especially when you describe how your dream home would be. The notion of polka dots is that it’s too childish to make a space look sophisticated and classy. However, it’s all in a matter of choosing the right dot for the right spot (pun intended) of your home.
Polka dots are very quirky. It’s a very youthful and eclectic pattern that can add a playful personality in your space. Because of this, it’s perfect for kids’ or a teenager’s room. However, if you’re an eclectic soul with a penchant for eye-catching design, it can be for you too!
You can easily add polka dots to your space by cutting a round sponge, dipping it in paint, and patting it on your wall. Don’t worry about aligning each dot perfectly, randomly placed dots look just as nice and adds another whimsical touch.
You can also mix more than one color of dot for a happier space. Have a space painted solely in white and add different colored polka dot stickers or decals on different surfaces. This brings in a whimsical touch to a minimalist space. Brightly colored dots are very playful, pastel opes are very feminine, and metallic and monochrome polka dots are a bit more mature.
You can also opt to buy polka dot wallpaper for ease, and if you want polka dots with dots perfectly lined after each other. You can make the polka dot the main feature of your space by making all your furniture pieces neutral and simple. However, you can still add other patterns (like a textured rug, or a bold lamp) in the same color as your dots for a cohesive look.
