I bet the one of the first things you think of when you hear “polka dots” is a nursery or little kids room. That seems the obvious design choice. But polka dots are a super versatile pattern that can be very chic. After I did my hallway in a tone on tone polka dot pattern, I got on pinterest to find some more examples of polka dots used in a more “grown up” way.
I love mixing patterns. This room is a good example of mixing patterns with out it being too crazy or busy.

Whether it is a rug, curtains, a chair, pillow, art, headboard, beadspread or your walls, polka dot can be a fun and chic addition to a space.
