Dots, Dots, Dots!

Dots, dots, dots

Polka dots seem to be a trend that just will not go away — and for good reason! A little bit French, a little bit whimsical, this is a clean and simple print that any person (or home) can wear. I especially love this sweet pattern in shades of modern, yet classic black and white. Scale is super important to pulling off this trend, so be mindful of proportions. Tiny dots are great for an allover look, while a gradient of scales works for outfit details like socks.

Dots for the home

From abstract art to appliqued pillows and flat woven rugs, polka dots certainly have a place in the home, too. I love the idea of adding a polka dotted rug to a variety of rooms. This Spots rug by Genenieve Gorder is a great example. It can pair nicely with most environments, from kids bedroom to breakfast nook; I’d even love to see it in a home office. And because it’s a flat woven, the dots a bit ‘deconstructed’ looking, making this rug a modern statement piece. Dots can also grace the walls in the form of abstract art. Or this simple pattern is a great punch to add to sofas and armchairs. Just like in your wardrobe, stick to an understated, yet bold color palette to avoid a look that’s too sweet.
