Adding to my ever-growing list (stripes, polka dots, animal prints) of patterns that I love, today I'd like to gush about the chevron stripe. A chevron is defined as stripes meeting at an angle and often occurs in the form of an inverted "v". It is often used on badges for police officers, noncommissioned officers, etc. (as an indication of rank and service), but lately you see it all over on clothing, stationery, home decor and accessories. The chevron stripe (also just referred to as a zig zag) reminds me a bit of a zebra strip but it is a bit straighter and neater (no surprise that I prefer it this way).
Check out my stylish friend A's dining room wall. AMAZING! If we ever decide to buy our own place, I look forward to convincing Rob that we need a chevron stripe wall.
