Seeing {Dalmation} Spots - Interiors Edition

Hi loves!
As you all know from yesterday's post on my recent purchases, I am now the proud owner of this dress from H&M (which I can't seem to find on the site anymore, but can assure you is still on the shelves!):
I've been seeing dalmatian spots a lot in fashion lately - on loafers, peplums and even pants.
But, darlings, we know that fashion and interiors are like a couple of besties who share a closet.
What one does, the other is sure to be doing.

Case and Point:
Tiffany Richey via La Dolce Vita
^We've all seen it, we all love it. Endlessly.
After purchasing my dress, I almost returned it thinking 'Can I really pull off a full dress of dalmatian spots?' But then I remembered the fabulousness of this ENTIRE ROOM done in a wallpaper of the print and decided that yes, yes I can.

^ Next, we all drooled when we saw Caitlin Wilson's kitchen on Design*Sponge featuring these gorgeous dalmatian print chairs. Then we all gasped when we realized that they were $50 IKEA chairs done up with a Sharpie marker! You can read the more detailed post about this on LGN.

^ I also can't get enough of Brooke's DIY spotted lamp shade!
Ohhh the possibilities are endless. A tray, a vase, dishware, the list of DIY possibilities goes on and on.

^If you are not much of a DIYer, you can always buy the fabric. I love this dalmatian upholstered tub chair. It's perfect for a kid's room!


Such a fun pattern! Maybe Cruella Da Ville knew a thing or two... but then again, her hair style suggests that she probably didn't. And I mean, lets go faux (or Sharpie) with this one folks. No skinning puppies please. Evil Cruella could have saved herself a whole lot of jail time if she's been as DIY savvy as some of these ladies!

haha I like your tidbit about Miss Cruella Da Ville! She was the scariest Disney Villian to me! How canyou not like puppies! I love this trend and pinned that exact top image a few days ago! It's such a lovely pattern. I would love to work it into my own home somehow. Maybe a rug or go all the way with the wallpaper idea. hmmm

You can totally rock that dress, Tiff! and the interiors with Dalmatian spots just make it all 10x's better! Love that idea of the sharpie chairs!! I just think I'd mess up and then be screwed! Anyway, happy day!

I'm hooked on this pattern too! I did a quick painting on a blank white canvas but haven't put it up yet. Planning on doing this to a pumpkin this weekend!
