Remember when chevron was the new big thing and it was everything? Well now it’s time for polka dots to make a long overdue comeback, which is obviously not a new pattern but it’s one that’s typically overlooked or considered childish. Switch up that mentality and embrace them!
If you don’t want to take the plunge and place polka dots all over your walls then take a more subtle approach and incorporate them into your home decor. An easy way to do this is by decorating a vase or a lamp, especially those bulbous ones that have a lot of surface. Coasters are extremely easy to do as well and a great touch to add to various tables around your home.
If you are feeling adventurous, which you all should be since it’s almost spring and we want to experience new things, you should decorate your walls and doors! Yes, I said walls AND doors. Don’t be scared to show off that hot red front door of yours by adding fun little polka dots or paint your back door blue with gold polka dots to make the back of your house stand out. An office space or your daughters room could be a great place for polka dots as well.
I know it’s probably scary to think about kitchenware such as dishes and spatulas having polka dots on them but just think how much less boring they would be! The pattern might even make your kids more excited to try new foods, who knows. White plates are ideal for this, just make sure you use the proper paint that won’t wash off in the dish washer. They’re also adorable on mugs!
Now it’s time for the extremely adventurous ones. Washer and dryer. That’s right, I want you to polka dot your appliances. This would be so cute in a single girl’s apartment and a great way to decorate if you’re not allowed to paint the walls. Polka dotting the back of shelves can bring new life to some old books and trinkets or polka dotting a canvas and hanging it up is a great way to decorate as well.
Do you have any polka dotted ideas?
