Problem: Polka dots don't play well with traditional decor.

Solution: We think polka dots can add a playful punch to any room. The trick is finding a clever way to introduce them into your scheme. Start with small ways: a pillow, a small piece of upholstery, or the back of a cabinet.

The fabric backs of these chairs add a surprise to a formal dining room. The pattern works because the dot is gray.
