DIY Friday: Crazy About Chevrons
For a long time, I thought Chevron was just the name of a gas station, and I had no idea that the company took its name from its logo’s shape: a chevron! These playful patterns have been popular choices for wood flooring or tiles for quite a while. Over the last few years, chevrons have been zig-zagging all over the DIY home design world in bold new colors.
If you have are thinking of painting the inside of your home or have a room that needs a lift, consider the chevron. I love how energetic chevron patterns are, but if you want a subtler effect, consider a muted color. Here’s a round-up of my favorite uses of the chevron.
