Chevron Trend

I am loving the trend of chevron. If I had a wall to paint (that I didn't have to repaint in a rental!) I would do a chevron for a little pizzazz. I love the versatility of this pattern. It can be dressed up with florals, blend in with other geometrical patterns, or stand out against solids. I enjoy it on pillows, home decor and even clothing but today I'm just focusing on using chevrons as an accent wall. Here are several beautiful examples:


As an accent wall, especially in a room with a neutral paint color like this. I could see this in a home office or a dining room.





A sweet soft color for a baby could carry them into older years in a classy way. Sticking with a pale gray is a nice way to be able to incorporate any color in the room in the future.





This is a different spin on chevron, graduate the colors for a bold look.





I love yellow so this wall is probably my favorite. If you have a small partition wall, don't ignore it. Make it stand out like this one.





If you aren't completely sold on chevron or want a temporary fix of it, paint a tryptic of canvases (always do odd numbers instead of even) in a bold color or metallic, like these, which I really love.





Where would you put chevrons?
