8 Easy Ways to Decorate with Chevron

I have to say that I’ve been loving the chevron trend that has been taking the design world by storm over the last several months. The classic zig zag pattern is both modern and fun, but can also look completely timeless when mixed into more traditional decor. I also love that it can feel both masculine and feminine, making it incredibly versatile. Loving this trend but not quite sure how to work into your existing decor? Here are a few ways to rock the chevron trend in your home with ease!

    One of the boldest but easiest ways to introduce a little chevron love is to paint an accent wall - it looks especially fun in a kid's room! Use painters tape to create the pattern, paint the entire wall and then remove the tape to reveal the pattern!

    A chevron lamp makes a quiet statement while still adding a pop of designer influence to a room. A chevron lampshade is an even easier way to commit because it's so easy to swap out down the line.
