Get in Style with Super Trendy Chevron Patterns

Pattern is one of the biggest trends this year and perhaps this decade.  It is a trend that's here to stay! One of the most easy-going patterns of all is chevron.  It's basically a zigzag line that creates a sense of a flowing breeze right through all that is static, solid and stagnant. Just a touch of a single chevron pattern and you'll feel the difference. If you add a few touches then look at what happens; it spices everything up!

Upholstery fabrics, embroidered pillows, rugs, curtains, duvet covers are just a few textiles that "modernize" a space with their geometric pattern. They create strong focal points that help accentuate the surrounding space.  Sometimes they are small and subtle like a throw pillow yet, other times big and loud like a rug making a strong unforgettable impact.  But, the best match in my book is when you mix their sizes.

Since it is very easy to get confused between chevron and the herringbone patterns here's a pointer: the chevron pattern is a distinct symmetrical zigzag continuous line with peaks and lows. On the other hand, the herringbone pattern has discontinuities because it has overlaps. Thus, it makes the impression of a weave-in surface.  Even more confused? Maybe the schematics below will help a little...

Missoni's most recognizable pattern is the chevron. But chevron patterns are versatile and as such they are not restricted to just textiles. Try to introduce them in your space onto your floors, bathroom walls, kitchen backsplash or a bedroom's accent wall. Watch how this traditional pattern adds energy and sophistication in a most elegant way in the spaces below. It challenges you to create the most fabulous, bold combinations. Its appeal lies in the fact that it draws you into the space.  That is why the chevron pattern is one of my all-time-favorite patterns...
