And yes, I'm over 30 but that is as much information as I'm going to give regarding numbers!
Polka dots are one of the oldest motifs in design. They've adapted through the ages in size, color, and scale. Whether you're decorating your living room or a child's bedroom, there is sure to be a place where a pop of polka dots is the perfect touch.

I distinctly remember sneaking off upstairs and pulling a chair up to the phone to make my calls. One by one, I called my all my friends and told them to come on over to my party..... that same day!
I'm ashamed to admit that I also dinstinctly recall asking them not to forget to bring a present. Cut me some slack though, I am child #12... both parties and presents were few and far between
in a family of that size.
My sister overheard me and ran to tell my mother. It's so funny every time I think back on it. Mom was not at all thrilled with me but I was tickled pink, with a smile from ear to ear as she raked my hair into ponytails and got me gussied up in my navy and white polka dot dress! She wasn't smiling, but I was, while "I'm having a party, I'm having a party.." was the constant, ringing melody going through my mind.
So even now, many years later, I'm still attracted to polka dots .....
Whether it's shoes....
P.S. you may want to block some time to review Amy's site.

polka dots, in moderation, always catch my eye and make me smile!
How boring would this bedroom be if we eliminated the polka dots? That green and white makes the space so much more fun and lively, don't you think?
Keep them two-tone for a tailored, retro look or go multi-colored for a bit of whimsical fun.
Go bright and lively when incorporating for kids. For children's space, bright and bold is most always met with approval.
If you have more than one place that you would like to use polka dots, repeat them strategically, such as tastefully incorporated in this bedroom. The polka dot is repeated on pillow sham and lampshade; just enough whimsy and impact without overload.
The addition of polka dots to otherwise plain space creates dramatic appeal, as both of the next images illustrate.
