Subtle Accent Walls

Polka Dot Interior Design Ideas

In calming shades, polka dots not only give a wall texture, but depth and interest. Wild, vibrant colors may just make the wall look too juvenile. But with the easiness of a hazy grey or a powdery blue, you’ll have a sophisticated look  that not only compliments your space, such as your home office or foyer, but brings surprising bit of style that wasn’t there before.

Pops of Pillows

Black and White Polka Dot Throw Pillows

If you just want an extra pop without all the fuss, jazz up your chic bed or sofa with a couple of polka-dot throw pillows. Make sure they’re in a classic color combination like black or white to fit that contemporary theme, and then just layer them on! They’ll create a nice bit of design-worthy burst!

Small But Mighty

Small Polka Dot Furniture Breakfast Nook

Small polka-dot prints have a way of being very powerful. They don’t necessarily overtake a room but add a force that makes them unable to ignore. They become the focal point of a room, which is great when you have a slick breakfast nook, with a chocolate bench-sofa covered in creamy dots! It’s a delicate, yet might look that’s perfect for a suave and chic home.

Wispy and Light

Light Sheer Polka Dot Curtains

Sometimes, even the most stylish and “perfect” spaces need a little lift and light. With some sheer, wispy curtains you’ll not only give the room a delicate, airy touch but with a sprinkle of polka-dots you’ll still be adding something eclectic and unique to your modern space. Don’t be shy of the girlishness, it’ll only create more interest inside the room!

Lots of Textural Tiles
