Human/House/Harvey: Polka Dot

by Stephanie

Human House Harvey, polka dots There is something so simple yet so peppy about a polka dot. I don’t know what it is about this pattern, but I can’t help but smile when I see anything in polka dot form. And though I’m more of a “solids” kind of girl, I can’t resist a special dotted mix every once in a while. So here are some of my personal picks for me, my home and my pup, Mr. Harvey. — Stephanie

HUMAN — There are so many (too many!) amazing polka dot clutches out there. I think it’s about time that I pick up one for myself. This one from Dalaga NYC caught my eye for its simple design and gorgeous periwinkle color.

HOUSE — If I am going to splash a pattern anywhere in my home, it will usually be in the form of a pillow or a rug. This Pottery Barn Teen polka dot rug (teen or not, it’s cute!) is just enough pattern for my tastes without being too much.

HARVEY — Mr. Harvey hates that rain. (Shar Peis are notorious water-haters.) So in order to get him outside at all when we get the occasional rain drops here in Los Angeles, I have to put on his rain coat. He hates the rain coat as much as the rain, but maybe if he had this adorable polka dot version, he would warm up to it a bit more . . .

  • I’ve been reading (and loving) this blog since the beginning and I’m not much of a commenter. But a greyhound in p0lkadots is exactly what it takes to get me to sign in and say something. LOVE. IT.

    OK now that I’m a member or whatever I’ll try to say some other things about other stuff from time to time.

  • The pouch is by Falconwright, an awesome Toronto-based duo! I own a small pouch with the same polka dot pattern in gold and teal from them and love it! Nice find!
