5 Ways to Put Pretty Polka Dots All Around the House

Home & Garden 5

Polka dots aren't just for nurseries and kids' rooms anymore. These days you'll find them scattered throughout the house. Not quite sure how to incorporate polka dots into your home furnishings? Start easy with a few throw pillows!

You can't go wrong with a polka dot shower curtain in a white bathroom like this. 

Don't be afraid of patterns clashing: you can incorporate more than one pattern with ease! Look at these polka dot footstools paired with that geometric rug and paisley window cushion. Bright and beautiful! 

I love a good polka dot tile pattern. Isn't this fantastic?

Still feeling nervous? A polka dot tablecloth is about a basic as it gets. Set a pretty table with style!

So what do you think -- can you get on board with the polka dot trend or is it too girly and youthful for you?

I love dots and I love mixing patterns. I just got rid of my dotty pillows when I tossed my sofa. The new sofa and pillows are a mix of various suzani, ikat, sari, Polynesian, Uzbek, and Guatemalan prints, with a colonial American print thrown in, too. It's amazing that they all blend so beautifully. Fine design translates from one ethnicity to the next. My new dotty fabric is an ikat. Love!

It's not too girly or youthful for me, it's too trendy and I'm just not into polka dots so much.

I can't imagine doing polka dot tile! In a few years when it's not so trendy any more, you'd be stuck with something fairly permanent, KWIM? Of course, it could be changed, but not quickly / easily / inexpensively.
