Dreaming of Summer With The New DockATot Confetti Stripe
Allow us to take you back in time to a hazy, midsummer day - sipping on an iced pink lemonade, gazing into the deep blue of a cloudless sky, wearing your favourite childhood striped summer dress and open-toe sandals. Soak in those shades - dusky pink, cornflower blue, lemon yellow, pistachio green...
And now, allow us to introduce you to ‘Confetti Stripe’, the latest addition in our Sun & Sea Collection that we’ve been crafting behind the scenes. It’s all about reminiscing - an ode to carefree and joyful summer days.
Come with us as we take a closer look at the inspiration behind the Confetti Stripe and share some style ideas for your interior design.
The new DockATot Confetti Stripe is the ultimate summer accessory for you and your little one. This exquisite new rainbow design will lift your spirits and help you dream of those lazy summer days basking in the sun.
Brightening up every corner of the house, the Confetti Stripe can be paired with any pastel-infused or neutral interior design palette to bring a touch of magic and a pop of colour.
The neutral palette is subtle, serene and all encompassing - from whites and pale greys to beiges and blush pinks. And the summery but sophisticated and distinct shades of the rainbow stripe will let the sunshine in on even the greyest of days.
Nostalgic and comforting
There’s no doubt that our thwarted vacation plans have inspired this new summertime trend. But we’ve turned our disappointment into an invitation for the vacation spirit to enter our homes. As we look for comfort in the familiar, we find solace in the happy memories sparked by these harmonious hues.
Choose to inject that summer soul into your interiors and create carefree, joy-filled spaces: think natural flooring, muted colour palettes and ample light with statement rattan pieces. Don’t be afraid to pair old with new - it infuses character into your interior design and the synergy will surprise you.
After a hellish year, this delightful trend is all about soothing post-pandemic stresses and bringing a sense of calm, comfort, playfulness and imagination to the fore. We can almost hear Billie Holiday singing Gerschwin’s ‘Summertime’ faintly in the background…
Traditional yet whimsical
The traditional stripes we recall so vividly from our childhood summers bring with them a sense of familiarity but also playfulness into the mix. Evoking a spirited and fanciful ambience - we’re imagining bright wall-hangings, woven materials, framed prints and voile curtains. And we don’t mean frills, flounces and lace when it comes to curtains - we’re talking contemporary designs in sheer or semi-sheer fabrics.
Expect to see florals, gingham and William Morris prints alongside plush velvet and impressive chandeliers. We’re putting the fun back into tummy-time, lounging and outfit changes. After all, dynamic play and interaction are at the heart of a happy childhood.
The DockATot Confetti Stripe is wonderfully gender-inclusive - perfect for planning nursery interiors when you want to keep the gender-reveal to the very last minute.
Cutting across boy and girl stereotypes, the rainbow is simply a joy-bringer. Symbolising hope and promise, it is a timeless, naturally-occurring wonder that has stood the test of time. The spectrum of colours yields a mesmerising visual for little ones to marvel at. Who isn’t amazed by this process of refraction through water droplets?
And so, our Confetti Stripe, with juxtaposing dyes, brings to life the imagination of both boys and girls and evokes a sense of awe and wonder.
