Modern, graphic herringbone is everywhere right now. It’s like an updated version of overplayed chevron, dressing up everything from tables to bathrooms. I even put a herringbone accent wall in Hugo’s nursery! Today, as part of our ongoing National Craft Month coverage, I join forces with Kathy from Merriment Design to create beautiful customized trays and boxes using humble balsa wood tiles.
