Instead of sticking with stripes this season, try decorating with chevron! Chevron is the inverted V-shaped pattern popping up in the home décor world in the form of wallpaper, accent rugs, throw pillows and even wall art.

Chevron may be all the rage these days, but that doesn’t mean it’s new. In fact, the chevron pattern appeared on pottery and rock carvings as early as 1800 BC in Crete and Greece. To cash in on this trend, take a bold approach by painting a chevron pattern on your walls or keep it simple with chevron accents.

If you’re feeling crafty, you can make your own chevron rug by buying a plain white rug and adding a chevron pattern with paint. Grab some painter’s tape, acrylic paint and a paintbrush, and then follow these step-by-step instructions to craft your own chevron rug: DIY Ikea Rug.

How will you incorporate chevron into your décor?
