21.07.13For the love of Chevron

chevron6

Today on the blog, I wanted to talk about one of my favourite designs…. chevron! A simple little pattern, but I just love it :) Chevron is essentially a repeated inverted 'V' pattern, with quite a retro vibe to it. Although it was pretty popular back in the 70's and of course is making a huge come back of late, the pattern dates way back, with chevron being found in old stone carvings and other forms of artwork such as pottery.

I love chevron because of its flexibility, particularly in home decorating and entertaining. It can be bold and retro or elegant and sophisticated. It's simple and clean and can be introduced in your styling in so many ways.

Today, you can get just about anything in Chevron print. From fashion to home decorating, from beauty to iphone covers – anything goes.

Choose your colour, choose the weight of your lines and go!

Here's some chevronspirational images to illustrate its versatility. Enjoy :)
