Bored of boring, straight stripes? Theres a solution to that! The chevron trend is all over fashion, accessories and now the home. Chevron, or parallel zig-zag stripes, can be used in a variety of ways all over the home. How you use it and where can reflect your personal style and show off what you've learned in interior decorating classes here at Ashworth College.
- Accent Wall - Painting one accent wall in chevron is a way to add a bit of the look without going overboard. Instead of simply painting one wall a different color, making it an entirely different pattern is another way to spice things up. To achieve this look, use tape to outline your zig zags and paint accordingly.
- Decorations- You can add chevron throw pillows, rugs, or frames to add a small touch of the look in your room. This prevents it from being overwhelming and keeps it tasteful.
- Tiles - Chevron can be achieved using more than fabric or paint. For some, making the tiles in the bathroom floor or the backsplash to the kitchen create the pattern is another unexpected twist that makes your home look fun and modern.
Would you ever add this look in your home?
