The Chevron Is The New Stripe


Lately this V shaped pattern has been showing up everywhere in the home.  Whether found on walls, floors, or accessories the Chevron is injecting vitality into interiors unlike a stripe ever has.A chevron is basically a stripe in a ziggity-zagg kinda way.  It is fun, fresh, hip and lively.  Chevron patterns have the magical quality of infusing order into an interior in a not-so-serious manner.

Finally for you super creative types check out what you can do with wall decalsOMG how easy is this?  If you want chevron on your walls in a day, click over to Vinyl Wall Art which is where these last pics are from.

While chevron may be a bold pattern it does not have to shout.  Both the herringbone wood floor or tile are tone on tone versions which remain quiet.  But if you want some thing more dramatic go for vivid contrasts or bold colors.  Here are a few ways you can add instant pizazz.

  1. Personal Placemats – Mattie Luxe
  2. Pillow – One Kings Lane
  3. Bedding  – Land of Nod
  4. Drapery – Crate & Barrel
  5. Rugs – Garnet Hill
  6. Drum Shade Pendant – Shades of Light

This fresh pattern is steeped in history but modern enough for today’s interiors.  Out with the uptight stripe and in with the chevron.  Where can you use some pattern? — Lisa
