Living Room Refresh - Quick Tips for an Update

 Update your Throw Pillows

PDR Interiors

One simple way to update your living room is by updating the throw pillows in your space. Pillows are easy to swap out every couple of years since they do not have to be a huge investment. People’s taste in patterns and styles tend to change and evolve over the years so something like a chevron pillow you may have loved 5 years ago, may feel a bit dated now. Mixing solids with patterns and textures is a good way to add dimension and personality to your pillows!

Simply take down all of the accessories you have placed around the room so you can rearrange and reevaluate what you may want to put away or relocate and replace with something new! Simple things like these can change the look of your space in a bigger way than you may think!

Whats Hot in Decor for 2018

Indoor Greenery


With the new year comes a fresh look at home decor and hot trends as well! Greenery has become a very popular trend in home decor recently and we are about to see it take off even more in 2018! You can use this trend in a small and subtle manner or you can take it all the way, whatever fits your style! These are some examples of different directions you can go with your indoor greenery. 

Black and White


Black and white will always be the most classic and timeless color duos. It does come and go when it comes to a “trending” style and it is in full swing right now. Although it will always be a gorgeous pairing, there are ways to keep it fresh and updated. One big trend with black and white right now are white spindles with black handrail and steps. This looks very chic and can go with most any decor style. 


Oversized Florals


Florals are one of those patterns that come in and out of the decor world like a cycle. The version of florals that are big for 2018 are oversized, bold florals with a highly contrasting background. Some examples of where you can implement this trend are on an accent wall with wallpaper, or on throw pillows!

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!


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.
