To Polka Dot or not

On 07, Jul 2012 | No Comments | In Likes and loves, Trends | By patternandco

Love em or hate em Polka dots are everywhere!  I like them for their fun, playful nature or the classic combination – black on white, just can’t be beat some days.

Below are a few of my favourite uses for the Polka Dotter in you!

Adore me via Maite Pons

Polka dots look great as backdrops for style shots.  They can add a bit of fun as well as a classic vintage vibe and look simply adorable in Maite Pons print above.

My idea for polka dot wallpaper, instead of bright and fun, add a bit of silver to create a bit more subtle and sophisticated dotty wallpaper that will sit on any wall.

Don’t want the hassle of permanent wallpaper, try the Polkalove wall stickers. 60 polkadots in 15 colours to use as creatively as you like.

Polka dots are a constant on stationary, gift wrap and homewares but the colour on the linen tea towel by Elenanor De Vetre and Lisa Stickley’s striped pencil box and black and white pencils look really fresh.

Neon pink polka dots used as overlays look fantastic!

What do you think?  Do you love the revival of the polka dots?

I often use polka dots as a background or overlay in my work, they are great pieces to mix in to a design, as in the BUNNY HOP! fabric below,

Easy to work with to!  I used a few simple polka dots patterns to make some polka dot stickers and labels for this post.
