Polka Dot Interiors: Product Round Up

Whether you decide to go all out or just want an accent of the polka-dot trend that graced runways for Fall 2011, I've rounded up fun interior products, from floor to ceiling and everything in between, to get the polka dot party started. Polka Music optional (and strongly discouraged).

Polka dots are a classic pattern that can work with any style; traditional, contemporary, or modern. Polka dots bring an interior to life by creating movement and adding a touch of whimsy. In subdued colors, polka dots can be soft. While contrasting colors pack a bold, graphic punch. Keep in mind dots on white backgrounds pop more than a dots on dark backgrounds.  And remember, polka dots aren't limited to pattern, it can also be a texture. When designing with polka dots, pay attention to scale and color. One false move and a sophisticated space becomes a child's room.
