25 Best Chevron Projects

One of my favorite recent trends has been the bold, graphic pattern we call chevron.  The zig-zag pattern is a fun twist on the basic stripe.  It’s definitely a classic that has been rediscovered, lately.  Decorators  and DIYers have enthusiastically welcomed it’s return to the design scene by using variations of chevron from floor to ceiling in their homes.  I love that chevron stripes almost always comes in bright colors, and I even like to wear it–check out the chevron skirt  I’m rockin’ in our family photos.

  1. I’ve done my best to stay off of the ‘chevron’ band wagon, but it is oh so tempting! I think I just may create the chevron pumpkin, sort of my way of dipping my toe into the chevron craze pool. I did see a diy chevron rug the other day that seemed perfect for my son’s room. Your post just may have swayed me. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. Thanks so much for including my outdoor art piece! I am still loving chevron so much! I used it in our Airstream reno and I am planning to add a little bit of it to my new craft room that I’m working on. Thanks for all the great inspiration:)

  3. I can’t get enough of chevrons! I know some think it is a fad, but I think the design is classic. It has just received a lot of attention this past year making it seem like a trend. I love this collection you gathered!
