Custom Polka Dots / Circles Roman Shades & Window Blinds

For your Living Room, Bedroom, Kitchen & Beyond

When Bryan Hyland released in the ‘60s his iconic album, ‘Itsy-Bitsy Teenie-Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini’, a generation of fashion and decor icons developed a newfound love for polka dots.

Now with Spiffy Spools’ collection of polka dots roman shades, the ‘itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie’ aura of this pattern has gotten a refreshing and modern twist. Brimming with interesting spin-offs of the basic polka dot motifs, our polka dot roman blinds collection features more depth, more playfulness, and is all the more accommodative of your desired decor theme.

Never to deny that polka dots have, and will always remain favorites for any kids’ room or nurseries, given the classic design’s playful energy. But the perception that they are childish and not suited for more grown-up spaces is far from the truth.

Styling with Polka Dots Roman Shades

Our stylists at Spiffy Spools have tapped into the versatility of polka dots, presenting you their top tips on how to choose your ideal polka dots window shades and introduce them in your ‘all grown up’ homes.

Go Classic with Black & White

When it comes to polka dots, there’s nothing more classic than a signature black and white palette. The idea is to steer away from vibrant primary colors in order to tone down the heightened playful feel of polka dots, and bring home a pared back sophistication. Noir, for instance, is our geometric styled fabric with white dots set in black background – just the right design to balance a color-vibrant scheme or to complete your monochromatic design with suitable drapery.

Surround Polka Dots with Grown-Up Patterns

Consider layering your polka dot roman shades with other ‘grown up’ patterns – like stripes – in a room. Stripes, in particular, can complement your curvilinear polka dots like no other to offer a sophisticated vibe. So let your polka dots become a piece of a bigger design puzzle in a room with plenty of different textures and patterns. However, in case you have a hard time striking the right balance, bringing in some solids in-between for a breather will just do the trick.

Go Messy

Put aside the symmetrical dots and go for a more messy, more abstract look! Imperfect circular forms placed unevenly can make a huge difference in toning down the playful vibe and giving a more mature look to your decor. For example, ‘Fiorella’ from our collection is a dreamy fabric featuring ‘messy’ polka dots in a palette of burgundy red, deep yellow, and gray; sometimes, dreams are woven in polka dots!

Go Small

Because the smaller the scale of your pattern, the more textural look it will offer from the distance. Small-scale polka dots, when placed close together with minimal negative space don’t read as polka dots at first glance, giving an illusion of texture with subtle movement. Point in case, our ‘Oh Crumbs’ polka dot roman shades, featuring an abstract pattern reminiscent of paint splatters on a fresh canvas.

Go Blurry

Polka dots shimmering as it were with random portions blurred and others highlighted make a stunning design. The high energy style of dots in movement is recontextualized with this reticent coloring style. Check Fineapple that brims with vitality in its dancing circles popping with dynamism.

With Polka Dots, Less is More!

Stylists recommend its usage with restraint and in small doses so as to not overwhelm other decor elements in your home. Thus, here’s when roman shades come in handy. Set against a solid painted wall, our polka dots roman shades offer just the right amount of pattern and energy your room may require.

Fold Style

Roman shades are available in three fold styles at Spiffy Spools. If you like a highly tailored look, opt for the flat fold styles. The front-slatted ones present visual breaks at the hemlines, hence we don’t recommend them for polka dots. Back-slatted ones, however are perfect because the free flow of this zingy pattern is not disturbed in this style. If you want a more casual unconstructed look, go for the European shades which have no slats and have scalloped bottoms.

Or do you want to add a roman shade as a decor element only but don’t quite need its functionality? Then, order our faux roman shade valance which not only allows for a shade-like look but is also much more economical. 

Frame with Drapes

Consider layering your polka dot shades with solid color curtains to create depth and dimension in the room. Choose plain drapes that match with the colors of the polka dots to bring a cohesive flow. This double window treatment ensures higher insulation and consequentially lower power bills. The drapes can be mere decorative elements kept stationary on the two sides of the shade or fully functional with shades taking up the stationary mode.

Thinking of polka dots, you might not have thought of such diverse patterns. Shades in these exuberant patterns are lovely perky decor elements for any room, not just for kids’ rooms. So go on, browse through our custom collection and pick your ideal piece of polka dots today!
