Even though I consider myself a fairly modern gal, with a love for clean lines and bright colors and new, innovative design ideas, there is something so beautiful about a classic teddy bear. Now, I think I’ve found a place where that classic style has met a modern, yet heritage-based, result. Meet Polka Dot Club, […]
