Otherwise known as a zigzag or herringbone-like pattern, the dynamic stripes seem to have taken home decor by storm. Seen in rugs, window treatments, wall decor, and decorative accents, chevron is a trendy pattern that can instantly modernize a room. Age- and gender-neutral, chevron can evoke many different emotions and provide a variety of aesthetic styles with endless color combinations.
Black and white chevron can add a bold graphic element to a room, especially in a room with a simple color scheme, like the one below. This otherwise neutral living room, decorated by Jonathan Adler, features aqua accents and high-contrast chevron patterns.
Although this nursery includes a similar black and white chevron rug, it produces a very different aesthetic. In contrast with the muted pastels and soft lines, the zigzagged pattern provides a chic and modern element. Check out Lay Baby Lay for more photos of this gorgeous nursery.
A smaller chevron print, though just as bold, can bring elegance to any window. Seen here in a softer shade of blue, this sheer patterned curtain creates the illusion of texture and adds graphic flair to a creative space. To see more curtains like these, Design Happens has quite the roundup of chevron window treatments.
For all of the do-it-yourself enthusiasts out there, we’ve found a simple tutorial at Timber and Lace. The distressed chevron print adds an immense amount of character to the dark gray walls. With only a piece of fabric, paint, and a thrifted frame, you can turn a weekend project into trendy wall decor!
Chevron has become a popular choice in entertaining as well. Brighter colors (such as this warm yellow) can bring a modern and stylish decorative element to any soiree. Draw your guests’ attention to the dining table or patio by enlisting the help of chevron.
