Polka dots are a staple in my decor armoury. They sit alongside a subtle stripe and can’t do any wrong.

As a fan of classic styling with an edge I find polka dots the perfect, subtle base. When I moved into my flat I instantly fell in love with the hallway. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I loved how light it was and the wallpaper really complemented the period features. Upon closer investigation and some persistent Pinterest browsing I realised the wallpaper I had fallen so in love with, was the Farrow and Ball Polka Square print (in white / taupe). No surprise there then. What’s that saying ‘champagne taste, lemonade budget.’

At upwards of £89 per roll, F&B Polka Square offers a quirky alternative to traditional polka dot, and is available in four colour ways. However, for any space larger than my modest two-bed flat it’s a pricey option.

There are other, more affordable ways of incorporating polka dots into the home. Wall art, textiles and accessories work well with any colour scheme and can be as subtle or bold as you dare to go.
