Trendwatch: Chevron Pattern

March 26, 2010

I got a request from a loyal reader to feature a trend she’s been seeing and loving everywhere- the chevron- a zig-zag line pattern, kind of a simplified herringbone. I’ve been seeing it too, and I’ve got to agree- it’s bold, it’s daring, it’s awesome! There are a lot of great things popping up in this pattern, and this is great news for you crafty home trenders! If you’re digging it too, this could be a great afternoon of DIY fun, whether it’s refreshing a desktop or a tray, or taping off an accent wall, you can totally pull this one off this weekend! Here are some ideas to get the juices flowing, and some helpful resources for getting this big bang into your room for just a buck or two. Fashion often crosses into interiors and vice versa. I’m not sure where this one started, but I’ll give you a sampling of each!

This first one is such a cool wall created by Stephanie at Sabbe Interior Design who explains on her blog exactly how to do it. With contact paper. In an hour! Wow, that’s design savvy.

    I like the artwork above the pottery barn design. Red is so intriguing. As for J. Crew, it is awesome! Too bad no maternity department. 😉

    I love this trend and you have collected some amazing pics here! That blue bathroom is TO DIE FOR. My favorite chevron patter in fashion will always be the french Goyard bags 🙂

    Thanks for visiting Bardot in Blue, so happy you visit has led me to your beautiful blog here!
