Polka dots add whimsy and charm, but they also have a sophisticated side. COUTUREcolorado’s recent post on polka dot interiors had everything from big polka dots to polka dot wallpaper to polka dot cushions and sheets. What’s there not to love?
Subtle tonal variations, particularly with shades of gray, make for polka dots that intrigue instead of overwhelm in the home. There’s also the question of spacing: spaced-out dots whisper more than shout.
Mixed with other patterns, polka dots are a definite favorite for home design aficionados for all rooms of the home. Gold polka dot pillows add causal elegance.
Polka dot wall art creates visual interest. Or just add polka dots to your existing walls with decals (no mess, no fuss?).
And polka dot desk accessories? Major win.
Of course, some of my favorites remain polka dot dishes. How else could you bring the dot joy to your table? Polka dot bowls dress up party snacks or your daily breakfast cereal.
Personally, I’m in love with the mix of dots on Richard Esteban’s handmade plates. Layering dots with stripes and solid pieces feels lush and sophisticated; these are definitely ideal for mix and match fans.
And another of my favorite French artists, Sylvie Duriez, loves to incorporate colorful polka dots into her subtle work on plates and pitchers.
