Polka Dotty Patterns & The Rhythm Of Your Home

Oct 16, 2013 | Home Style



Whether they are perfectly round dots or dotty patterns, the polka dot vibe is that of rhythm.   While too many dots may drive you batty, a deliberate splash of the polka dot will add a musical energy to your home in an unusual and wonderful way.

When speaking of the polka dot, it is impossible to not include artist Yayoi Kusama in the conversation.  The polka dot is one of her main idioms in visual language.  When speaking on the polka dot, she says, “…a polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement… Polka dots are a way to infinity.” 

Who can argue with a genius?!

What a fascinating way to revamp an antique sofa: reupholstering with swatches of dots mixed in. I just love the effect. Its like a massive sculpture in a living room.

This corridor becomes increasingly more compelling with lots of dots!

While these are not the infinity dots of Yayoi Kusama, this dotty pattern brilliantly illustrates the energizing effect of the patterning.

And this room pretty much summarizes a hot polka dot tip- miking colors and dot patterns helps to craft a fun yet non-overwhelming space.

A bit of unusual patterning, surprising color or spotty art can turn up your home volume in a fabulous way!
