Decorating trend: Chevrons
This little pouf is a designer’s dream. Apart from the eye-catching chevron design, it’s a versatile piece that can be turned into seating or side tables. And the colour scheme ties well into many colour palettes. West Elm, $257.88.
The chevron is a bold pattern to be sure, but you can scale back the impact. Choose items that use it minimally instead of all over. In this case, indigo blue against a linen background still makes a dramatic statement. Coyuchi, $90.
Send a cheerful ‘hello!’ with these whimsical and brightly-coloured note cards. They’ll make an impression on all who receive them. What pretty paper doesn't? Smile Steady on Etsy, $10 USD (set of 10).
Make this bedding the centrepiece of your bedroom, keeping everything else around it solid or neutral. You can’t miss the mark with the standout pattern of charcoal on stark white. West Elm, $24.86 - $112.89.
Colourful cocktail napkins
Add verve to your stylish outdoor furniture or picnic spread with these gorgeous vibrant napkins. They make even the everyday meal feel festive! Horchow, $52-$76 (pkg of 100).
As striking as the chevron is, in a neutral weave, it’s subtly sophisticated. Paired up against dark woods and light perfect walls, the pattern blends smartly into your space while drawing quiet attention to itself. Crate and Barrel, $247.31 - $1117.26.
The chevron motif is a great way to dress up bathroom decor. It makes the space more interesting and helps awaken your senses on those early mornings! Castle Creek Designs on Etsy, $150 USD.
If you’re looking for a way to experiment with chevrons, a beautiful blanket is a good option. It adds drama when you want it – but is easily tucked away when you don’t. Horchow, $195.
Floors with flair
It’s sometimes nice to keep drama on the down-low. It’s a pleasant surprise when you enter the room or look down – but because it’s not at eye level, you won’t tire of it too quickly. This is a fabulous flooring option for your home. Dwell Studio, $235 - $715.
