Playing with Pattern: Dots for Grown Ups

It’s not secret how much I love dots. I mean, borderline obsession here friends.  They are graphic, play well with many pattern friends, and add a touch of whimsey to any design.  Dots do not have to be reserved for sweet nurseries or the craft room.  You can easily work dots into the most sophisticated of decor. The trick is to expand the possibilities of what you would traditionally think of as a dot pattern.  Dots that are perfectly round, and evenly spaced may have a more juvenile feeling to them.  However when they have a bit of texture or a not-so-perfect shape they instantly jump up the grown up ladder.  There is not so much of an in between place for me on working them into a room.  Dots are great for those go big or go home moments, and they are equally nice when added for just a little hint of pattern.  No matter your approach your dotted touch will add a bit of movement and play to your space.
