Re-Brand



Time for a Change

You may have been following along with our teases on Instagram regarding our re-brand. We are so happy to finally announce it is official that your friends at Polka Dots & Rosebuds Interiors are now PDR Interiors! Along with our streamlined name, we have updated the logo and the website as well! Throughout the years, our brand has matured and so has our work & we thought it was time our logo and website caught up! We have been working on this update for quite a while and we hope you all love it as much as we do!

Inspiration

The colors in our new logo are navy and gray, a classic and clean combination that we feel represents us well. You’ll also notice we’ve added a greek key emblem to the logo as well. This is a symbol that is seen in a lot of decor items and also acts as a nod to our niche market among the Greek (Sorority) community. Its also a motif we love to incorporate into our designs as it is both a classic and beautiful pattern. 

Same Team New Look

Fear not! It is the same team here at PDR and our services have not changed in the slightest. We are here to help clients bring their design goals to life just as we always have! Thank you all for joining us on this amazing journey and supporting us every step of the way.

Looking to 2018 - Our Top 3 Decor Trends


Iridescent Pieces 

walkerzangerblog.com

With the holidays coming to an end and 2018 just around the corner, it has us thinking about home decor trends for next year. One of the trends that is on its way back in is to add in iridescent touches to your space. These photos show examples of iridescent backsplashes. The interesting thing about this is depending on the light in your space the colors can change drastically. Its important that these touches remain subtle because it can quickly become over the top, but when done in a subtle way can look so chic and purposeful.

Brass

redohomeanddesign.com

Brass is another trend for 2018 that has come back in recent years and doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon. A lot of us associate brass with being outdated while in reality when done in an intentional way can look so updated and fresh. Examples of how brass can be used in an updated manor include light fixtures, end tables, accessories, hardware, the list goes on and on. Antique brass is another gorgeous finish that will continue to be on trend into 2018.

Brown is Back

Gray has ruled the world of interiors in recent years so its hard for some to wrap their minds around the fact that browns, beiges, and taupes are on their way back in a big way! We are so excited about this shift back toward browns because it is such a warm rich tone that brings instant coziness wherever you use it. Look out for these tones in 2018!

Holiday Throw Pillows

Another easy holiday decor item to add to your guest room are seasonal throw pillows. These can be something simple like furs and plaids all the way to trees and gifts or holiday sayings. You can find pillows like these at great prices in stores like Target or Homegoods. Holiday pillows with neutral colors are always a good bet so you don't have to worry about matching them perfectly to the bedding in the guest room.

Wreath in a Frame

One super simple DIY you can add to your guest room is a small wreath hanging inside of an empty wall frame. This takes a simple wreath and turns it into a piece of art that is more appropriate to hang on a wall in a bedroom than just a wreath on its own. We personally love the look of a classic green wreath and red bow with a white frame, but you can take it in which ever direction you choose!

When it comes to incorporating heirloom pieces into your indoor holiday displays, the possibilities are endless. Vintage items work so beautifully when paired with holiday pieces. For example, a vintage pair of ice skates can be hung with winter foliage tucked inside them for a gorgeous look. Another fun idea is to take an heirloom bowl whether it be crystal, glass or something else and create a mini winter wonderland inside it as shown below!
