Simple Ways to Update Your Home with Chevron Stripes

by Christen

The chevron pattern is one of the hottest patterns right now in fashion and home décor. A chevron is an inverted V and in patterned fabric is repeated to mimic a zigzag. Italian Designer Massoni has made the chevron “flamestich” pattern his signature look that has stood the test of time.

If you want to join in the Chevron craze simply add a patterned pillow, chair or drapery side panels to instantly transform and update your living space. The chevron pattern helps adds color and contrast in a modern way.  I love the look of a black and white chevron area rug teamed with bright colored accessories.

A black and white chevron rug is a timeless and stylish basic that can be used in any room, with any color or style decor.

But don’t overdo it! Too much chevron in one room can create a chaotic, messy look. A little goes a long way.
