Polka dot bedding can be enormous fun, and really provide a lift to a bedroom. Whether for a boy’s or a girl’s room, polka dots of any color will give it some verve and dash. Girls in particular are often keen on splashes of color, and spots or strips are a great way of creating a modern, clean look.
Pink Polka Dot Bedding
Pink is undoubtedly a popular choice of colors for girls bedding, but too much pink can be somewhat overwhelming, so using pink polka dot bedding as a focal point can be a good way of adding the color without drowning the whole room in it! Try mixing the pink with black, white, gray, or even purple to add some other interest, and you’ll find you can avoid that sickly sweet effect quite easily! Pink and brown polka dot bedding can produce a warm, comforting feel, and the brown element makes the room appear more grown-up, which young girls will appreciate over time.
Black And White Polka Dot Bedding
Black and white bedding can be a really cool twist on the polka dot trend, and you can introduce other colors around the room without any difficulty at all. The monochrome color scheme is easy to coordinate, but still makes a strong statement, and works for both young and older kids bedding sets. Add some zebra stripes, or straightforward stripes, for a little extra zing and the room will really sparkle!
Circles of color painted onto neutral walls also help draw the space together, and you could easily stencil these in different sizes wherever feels most appropriate. Alternatively, use circular cork boards or blackboards, or trim posters into circular shapes to reflect the main theme.
Polka dot shapes are also great to add in a less formal way; try using circular drinks coasters of different colors, round pencil pots, round seats or stools, and even something as simple as round door and cupboard handles and and clothes hooks. You’ll also find that cups and glasses, pencil cases, and curtains and valances can be sourced easily, and will add nicely to the overall look.
It’s easy to overdo polka dots, though, so consider plain colors in a coordinating shade, and a white background where possible to avoid too much ‘business’. Smaller dots on curtains and valances help to balance polka dot bedding, for example, and can reduce the impact of larger circular shapes.
Essentially, though, if you are going for polka dots of any size or hue, you are going for a strong look. Bear in mind that your child may tire of this in not too long a time, and use plain elements as well, so that when this happens, it won’t cost a fortune to redesign the room (you can always reuse the plain elements, and redistribute some of the redundant furniture around the rest of the house)! In the meantime, indulge your offspring’s wishes, give them their dots, and let them dance the polka to their little hearts’ content!
