Zig zaggy chevrons are a hot little pattern in home decor. And it’s no wonder, chevrons come in a wide range of colour combinations, most commonly white paired with another colour, and in different scales. The bold graphic print, can be incorporated in small or large doses, depending on the┬ámethod you choose to display the pattern. If you want to know how to decorate with chevrons, look no further!

I love how graphic the pattern is, especially when paired with bright solids and interesting textures. Here are some ways to use chevrons:

 

  • Carpets
  • Curtains
  • Bedding
  • Pillows
  • Accessories
  • Lamp Shades
  • Wall Treatments

There are so many DIY possibilities with chevrons! Imagine painting an old wood floor, revamping furniture with chevron fabric and then there is sewing! You could make curtains, pillows, a table-cloth or cloth napkins. Paint a canvas with zig zaggy chevrons for instant art! How to decorate with chevrons really depends on your personal style and how much pattern you want or need to introduce into your space. Chevrons are a delightfully cheerful pattern so have fun with them!
