How to Bring Chevron into Your Home

The Chevron pattern is a bold pattern that makes a really strong impact on a room. It's essentially a series of V's laid out in a row. It's a little bit wavy but with more of a hardened edge. Chevron originates all the way back to Greek times.
Despite being a bold and tough design, it's a great choice even for the most serene of homes. If you choose the right colors and placement for a Chevron design then you can evoke that wavy, undulating relaxed feeling that lies beneath this design. 
This look isn't for everyone but it's certainly one to try to play around with. You don't have to commit to incorporating it into your design completely; use towels, pillows, blankets, rugs and other temporary items to test out this design.

  1. Swoon, sigh......What gorgeous chevron designs, especially the lamp shade and the chairs :) The old fashioned name for chevron is zig zag and I've always been a fan!
