Okay, I know, I know. Chevrons have been around for awhile now, like probably 4 or 5 years as a consistent trend in wedding, party and lifestyle decor. But, I just can’t seem to shake my love of them. I’m sorry that I’m not before the trend, but you can’t help liking what you like, and right now, I’m totally into Chevrons.
I think I really like this as a design concept because geometric shapes always work for party decor and even home decor. Repetitive shapes add order and consistency and a little fun into your theme and design. But, sometimes using an abundance of circles or squares or, whatever, can be overpowering and overwhelming. Not so with chevrons. You could do a whole wall in a soft chevron pattern and it would be amazing. You can layer one chevron pattern over another and it just works.
Maybe it’s the way that the pattern fools the eye so that we don’t know if it’s an upward V or an inverted V, if it’s zigging and zagging or swirling. There is a fluidity to it that, in my opinion, will never go out of style because it is so easy to work with.
As this inspiration palette shows, it’s also a pattern or geometric element that, for some reason, works well on it’s own as one colour statement, but also just as well with a full colour scheme. It can be zany and fun and also very elegant. It’s just a great pattern. Use it, have fun with it, enjoy it!
Are you crushing on chevrons too? Have you thought about using this pattern in a party theme?
