Design Obsession - The Chevron Pattern

Another find in Vegas!!! 

The main buyer for Greenhouse Fabrics-
isn't she adorable?
(she reminds me of Ashley... hard to get out 
of the motherly mode!)

I've been ordering from Greenhouse for years and was pleasantly
surprised to meet Leah as an attendee at our 
Interior Design Society National Conference.

She had some awesome new fabric introductions and we shared
our like passion for the Chevron...

If you have been living under a "design" rock... here you go:

Chevron: I like to define the chevron pattern as...
"a splash of happiness". Because it is! Just lines and colors...
and make such a smile!

 Some of you may have seen this pattern when Missoni came out with their 
collection at Target back in the fall. Here are some of their 
recent patterns. How great! 

Just a splash of this fun "zig zag" pattern will recreate a whole room for you!

Hello Pretty Things posted this to their blog and I fell in love with the idea!

A quick and easy addition to make your floor "pop"! This rug is sold at West Elm.

Another design from West Elm is this stylized chevron in a duvet. Chevron 
doesn't just have to be crisp... it can have some movement to it too!

Feeling brave?? (And very patient) Try out the chevron pattern on your WALLS!

Add interest to your wall through painting in a pattern! 
(this would rather time consuming, maybe enlist some helpers)

Pillows are also an easy addition! There are thousands of places that sell 
chevron pillows now, but check out Lacey Placey on Etsy.
I have purchased some of her pillows, and they are 
absolutely gorgeous! (and inexpensive!)

She will custom make any size for you as well!

For all you new moms out there, she makes chevron burp clothes too!

Lots of bright and fun colors!

Another idea: You can zig zag above a mantel through art work.
 I could even paint this ;)

If your other furniture pieces are simple and patternless, a chair like 
this can brighten that room right up! Urban Outfitters has a fun chair:

They also have a duvet in a zig zag pattern!

Adding a zig zag rug to a room really changes the whole feel for the space. 
It gives it a bit of a refreshed step and a definite contemporary ambiance.

This burnt orange zig zag rug gives this dining room a great floor
 for a wonderful design.

Even the small accessories make a huge difference! 
Anthropologie sells this wonderful basket!

Last but not least...don't forget to stay organized in style;)
Plum Paper Designs sells these wonderful little trinkets!

Be Bold!


Until next time,
