Dots are everywhere at the moment, both in fashion, decor and interiors.

Polka dots have been trendy for quite some time now. This pattern isn’t new and it comes & goes, but there’s still something timeless and classic about a good polka dot print.

It doesn’t have to be limited to nurseries and kids rooms either.  When used in the right way in the right scale, polka dots can add a whimsical touch without making a space feel too “young”.  Interiors are incorporating the polka dot pattern in a more sophisticated way now.  There is indeed a way to make this fun pattern part of your decor while still keeping things somewhat “grown-up.”


Rugs are a great way to introduce the pattern into your decor.  A neutral colour anchors the space and doesn’t make it too busy
