Well, yet again, I have failed to write for two months. But hey, at least it’s because I’m busy writing for my new job and a freelance gig on the side! I realized a few weeks ago that because of industry I’m in now, the content of what I write may change a bit. No longer am I immersing myself in digital marketing and advertising, but have moved on to print advertising, copywriting and subjects like interior design, fashion and entertaining.
Basically anything goes now, so for my first attempt at fashion/style blogging, I give you chevron!
The Chevron pattern was recently recognized as the pattern of the year. It is reminiscent of the retro décor seen in the 1970s and is essentially a series of inverted Vs.
Here are a few of my ideas on how to use the pattern:
– A chevron rug in your entryway shows guests you’re not bland with your decorating style. Choose one in bright hues or neutral colors!
– Curtains with this pattern break up a solid-painted room. For an eye-opening look, try pairing a simple black and white or brown and white chevron curtain with a solid tangerine or orange wall.
– Paint on the pattern! Use painter’s tape to cover a solid wall with the motif, or revamp your bookcases with chevron painted on the back wall.
– Make your own headboard! This can be as easy as constructing the frame out of wood and covering with a chevron-patterned fabric. For more comfort, add some padding between the fabric and the board.
