It all started with this rug from FLOR….
If you’re not familar with FLOR, they sell carpet squares…..really cool ones! I love this chevron pattern, and if you lay the squares in different directions, you can have a brand new pattern. And the part that I like is that if Henry (The Big Dog) gets one of them dirty, I can just pop it out and replace it with a clean one! How cool is that!
I’ve become smitten with chevron.
Of course, that sends me out in to cyberworld to see other great designs that bridge classic traditional with modern trends.
This floor is so beautiful, and those of you under 40 might even think it’s a brand new look, but this patterns was found in many upscale homes built in the 50’s and 60’s. What goes around, comes around, and this awesome floor feels right at home in 2011.
Same floor, completely different look.
I love to take risks in design, and anything Miles Redd does is great inspiration for me. This marble tile chevron is crazy! but that’s what separates Miles from the rest of the pack.
This looks like it might be a floor cloth…not sure, but that could be a great way to bring the chevron to the floor without having a permanent installation. I think this could be fun…..for a little while!
Chevrons don’t have to be relegated to the floor…..moving on up to the wall.
There are tutorials that will show you how to do this paint technique on the wall. Buy lots of tape and sharpen up your math skills!
I love the statement that this backsplash tile makes. Paired with rustic neutrals in this kitchen , they are the star of the show.
(I wonder is Miles Redd has seen this???)
I think every fabric company has a chevron pattern in their line. Great for drapery and even upholstery, the chevron pattern always brings energy into a space.

And then my favorite….the painted furniture!
What an easy way to get a new look to a vintage piece!
I’m making way for some chevron in my life this year…..one way or another!
Yeah, this will work too!!
