I’m going to something that many design bloggers and DIYers and interior designers are going to frown upon. I’m over the chevron. Chevron is sooo last month. I mean honestly you see it everywhere. People have it all over their blogs, on business cards..on their doormats. I know, the chevron doormat has been my most popular post yet. And I get it.. The chevron is clean and predictable..something you can take home to mom and dad. But, maybe it’s too clean, and too predictable. I’m moving on. My new love: herringbone.
Herringbone has more versatility, a little less perfect. For example:
Love the lime herringbone pattern from Puffed Peonies. Gorgeous, no?
It’s hard not to love herringbone, once you start thinking outside of the fabric of old men’s smoking jackets.
Be prepared..I’m working on herringbone type projects as we speak..
