Guest Picks: Dots Done Right

There’s not any doubt that dots are in fashion nowadays. For me, they’re always in fashion; I don’t think I’ve ever met a dot that I didn’t like. There’s just something irresistible, happy and peppy about polka dots.

Polka dots could be incorporated on your decoration in big and small ways, and occasionally it’s the tiniest of dots which add the largest punch. Here are my 20 selections for incorporating polka dots to your house. — Trina from La La Lovely
