Crushing on chevron prints - part 3 - walls, floors and furniture

In my last "Crushing on chevron prints" post, I showed you some ways you can add chevron to your home without making much of a commitment.  This time, let's look at some more permanent ways to bring in the ziggety-zaggeties.

Walls

Yes, you can always re-paint a room.  But these designs require a lot more work than just a little cutting in and rolling, so you'd want to keep them for a long time!

 I gasp over this brown and white zig-zag design, which was painted freehand (no tape)!

Floors

You can lay wood planks on your floor in a chevron pattern if you want to make a statement with your floor.  Nancy at Marcus Design shared several photos that you should check out, including this one.  Gorg!

You could also employ regular straight-plank wood floors but use stain to create a chevron pattern.  This example gives the effect of a rug.

You can even create a chevron pattern with tiles.  These are black and white marble, and are super classy!

Or you can use whatever hard-surface floors you have and paint them.

Furniture

Not quite ready to take that much of a dive?  Here are a couple bits of furniture inspiration.

For those of you not so into the chevron ... well, who am I kidding -- those people didn't read this far.

For those of you who are digging it, my next and final chevron post will include some DIY projects.  Stay tuned!

    1. Thank you so much, Vidya! I was recently at a museum that had examples of ancient Greek, Roman, and Middle Eastern architecture. I spied some chevron patterns in the ancient walls. Even though it's a trend today, it's been around a long, long time!
