I’ve been seeing the classic chevron zigzag everywhere — from pillows to throws to rugs. My favorite? Chevron curtains.

Even in a neutral space the chevron print adds a bit of pizazz. These curtains are the perfect accent for this global-inspired reading nook.

One of my favorite bloggers, Jess Constable from Makeunder My Life, added chevron curtains to her home office, which you can see more of on Rue Magazine. The blue and white is so soft and elegant.

And if you’re not the DIY type, you can find chevron curtains on Etsy at Maison Boutique and Castle Creek Designs.

PS My fellow blogger, Brian Patrick Flynn carried the painted-canvas idea further with a colorful outdoor rug painted on a drop cloth.

  6. I love chevron for a curtain because it's hard to lose the pattern (which can sometimes happen with stripes) in the folds. These are great examples (and I of course love Jess's apartment!)
