One Day You're In, and the Next Day...

You're out. (In my head, this is said in Heidi Klum's voice from Project Runway).

Chevron, you're so out, and herringbone, you're oh so in.

Although these two looks are very similar, the recent chevron craze has left somewhat of a bad taste in my mouth lately. I'm love it, but I'm tired of it. See the above illustration for a more detailed view of what makes these two patterns different.

Both patterns are quintessentially European and, in my mind, just scream "apartment in Paris". However, I find the "flow" of the herringbone pattern much more visually pleasing than the sharp lines in chevron.

I'd love to know your thoughts and opinions!



  1. I'm getting tired of chevron too, love it but lately it's everywhere, not only floors, so herringbone it is:)

    ps: the gold urchin is from, but I don't think it's available anymore.

  2. Great interiors. Lovely for inspirations.
