Straight Lines are Boring!
The Chevron pattern is a bold pattern that makes a really strong impact on a room. It's essentially a series of connected V's pointing either up or down. It's a little bit undulating a little bit wavy but with more of an edge. Chevron feels organic like a zebra print but more graphic and punchy. You can make a bold statement with a chevron rug (West Elm makes a great fairly inexpensive one) or you could even stencil and paint the chevron right on the floor! I love chevron curtains but smaller accessories like jars and pillows are great for adding a dash of modern graphics to a room.
