Special Nonexistent Furniture

Use polka dots to brighten a blank wall. Set in a grid or in a free-flowing pattern, wall decals are a quick and easy way to add interest to a kid’s room or hallway.
There aren’t a lot of opportunities to add pattern to a bathroom, so a polka dot shower curtain is great bang for your buck!
Mixing patterns is easy when you pair big polka dots with tiny polka dots. Keep it in the same color palette for a cohesive look.
Large polka dots have a contemporary feel. For a retro style, stick with smaller dots.
Polka dots add sass to even the smallest accessories, such as throw pillows or oven mitts.

We're seeing spots! Polka dots are the cheeriest
pattern, and we're thrilled they're trending this spring. Although polka dots are often a popular pattern for children's decor, white dots (particularly if they're small) on a solid background are a sophisticated-preppy look for decorators of any age. If you love color—or are looking for a way to add punch to your current decor—look for accents featuring dots in all colors of the rainbow. Don't be afraid to think beyond fabrics. Polka dots can also be found on everything from dinnerware to wall decals. If you'd like to try this trend with a little caution, look for dots that are part of a bigger pattern (see chair fabric, below).
