Polka dots in Home Decor

Have you all noticed the polka dot craze that is happening in the fashion world?  I know it was on the racks last year, but I couldn’t help but notice as I was back to school shopping with the boys, that it is everywhere for Fall.  Are you a fan?  Polka dot obsessed, if you will?  Of course, my brain instantly goes to how the pattern is being used in home decor.  Go figure.  So here are some options for incorporating these dots in your home if you are digging this trend.

For those of you who are not afraid to be bold.

You can also find this trend in furniture…I think the classic pattern works well on these cushioned stools and will always stand the test of time…not to mention how fab is that white trim.

Art is another great way to bring in the dot craze, especially if you are not ready to make a big commitment.
