Design Style Guide talks about 2010 SPRING COLOR TRENDS.

Designers bring splashes of sunshine  for spring 2010. Vibrant brights add a sense of excitement to the color palette, while practical neutrals provide a safety net for cautious consumers.
Spring hues featuring light colors white or pink are ideal for a girl's bedroom this year. Using a polka dot pillow as inspiration is the main point for a focal wall for this room. The whole effect is even more highlighted by using polka dots in 2 different sizes in the same room. Damask fabric in apple green complements the vivid pink wall, while a white headboard and bedding give the space a crisp, fresh look. Because of the simplicity of this design and clean lines the colors contrast really well with each other. I also like the small details like black outlines on pillows.

Design Style Guide finds some accessories perfect for this room.

Tips for the best way to paint these pretty polka dots on the walls, ceilings or anywhere else you want to put polka dots! The instructions for this polka dot painting technique very is simple.

1. Go to to the kitchen and find one, larger round dish like a plate to use as a template.
2. Simply trace the cirles in the pattern of your choice.
3.  A flat painted surface is preferable to a semi-gloss or eggshell paint. To get good adherence, the shine has to be removed from the original surface for each and every painted circle or polka dot.
4. You might have better control of your painted patterns using sponges although with sponge painting your polka dots will have a slightly differnt and textured look.

If you don't feel confident about painting polka dots on the wall, you may want to give painting polka dots by using stencil patterns a shot or purchase white circle wall decalls that are the same size and simply adhear them to the wall. If you simply do not have time and do not mind the cost than simply find a wall paper with large polka dots and you are set.
