You guys know all about chevron, right? So hot right now. I have yet to use any chevron in our house, considering I don't think that ultra-modern vibe blends too well with some of the 16th century features of our home.
However, I think I may be able to incorporate some freehand herringbone (Chevron's cousin that knows how to have a good time) somewhere without it feeling too modern for our house. This could be wishful thinking. In my opinion, herringbone seems a little less rigid, while still offering some kind of geometric order. I first started crushing on this pattern a few weeks ago when I came across this fabulous mudroom by Ann Marie at Twice Lovely.
Today, I grabbed some inspiration from around the web of some fun ways of incorporating herringbone into home decor....
Add a bit of whimsy with these multicoloured herringbone glasses. For just $85 each, $525 for a pack of 8, they are practically a steal! (If you grow money trees in your back yard).
You could add a herringbone rug, to liven up a neutral living area.
herringbone throws? (Again, you may need to raid the money tree for one of these).
Tatertots and Jello !
Personally, I don't think I'd have the guts to put that much work into a whole wall of herringbone, but I'm definitely going to find a way to sneak some into our house this weekend.
If you had money trees, would you totally buy those glasses? I definitely would. How do you incorporate trendy patterns into your home?
