Dots, stripes & bold graphic designs

Combining prints: still the new black? It looks like we’re in the mood for dots, stripes and great graphic designs this year! While browsing around for inspiration I found polka dots everywhere. From bags and tights to bedding and wallpaper. Graphics are going to be bold, whether in black and white or vibrant colors. And according to Elle.com we’re ‘walking the line’ in the spring of 2013. If you are in need of inspiration visit some of the websites listed below. Also I have collected some great geometric designs for you. Looking to make a statement in your home? Check them out!
