Chevron walls and accessories are all the rage at the moment and I just love the cheerful zig-zag pattern that has been made famous by Italian fashion label Missioni. Chevron however is almost as old as mankind with the pattern going back to 1800 BC when it was popular on pottery.
Why it’s experiencing a renaissance now, I don’t know, but I guess all trends come back at some point and now it’s time for the clean and sophisticated lines of the chevron pattern. I have spotted it on cushions, picture frames or throws, but what excites me most are colourful and bold chevron walls. Painted with precision or designed with the help of wall stickers they are a great feature in any room, don’t you think?.
When browsing Pinterest for some inspiration and tutorials, for some reason I want to revamp our entire house at the same time, I came across chevron walls for nurseries and although I initially thought they might be a bit bold for little ones, I have completely changed my mind now. I love that they bring colour and character to the room and I’m seriously considering painting a chevron wall in Amy’s bedroom. It’s fun, timeless and bang on trend. What’s not to like? And with this great tutorial that I’ve found on an American website, it shouldn’t be too much of a challenge.
What do you think? Will you be joining the chevron bandwagon?
