Spotting a Trend: Polka Dots
We've been seeing spots everywhere lately. From the kitchen to the bathroom, polka dot accessories are a trendy pattern for fall. Maybe it's because the tiny dots remind us of falling snowflakes. Or maybe they're just fun! Whatever the reason, here are some elegant ways to include dots in your decor.
Dotted dinnerware adds some texture and pattern to an otherwise white table. Look for tiny dots in a neutral color, like gold, for a refined look.
For more casual affairs, go for large dots in bold, bright colors. We love the combination of bright dots and rustic earthenware for a friendly, casual look.
Etched polka dots add a subtle touch of whimsy to clear stemware, evoking the festive feeling of champagne bubbles.
Colored stemware also benefits from some carefully placed dots.
Another way to incorporate polka dots is in your table linens. Paired with solid dinnerware, it adds some depth and texture to the whole dining room. The tone-on-tone dots of this tablecloth don't overwhelm the way a contrasting pattern might.
Napkins are a quick and easy way to try out the trend, or add a small accent of dots.
In the bedroom, a scattering of sparkling dots on a throw add a touch of style.
