Into 2012: Chevron Trend – Are We Done Yet?

1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9

Chevron. Zig Zag.  Herringbone.  I love the pattern, but we did see a lot of it in 2011 — in design, fashion and life.  Here are some highlights: 

In interiors:

– Floors and rugsBedding.  On furniture, curtains, pillows and walls.

– Design Sponge’s DIY – block-printed fabric and bedroom wall.

 In fashion:

MissoniKelly Wearstler dressElizabeth and James knit vestAlice + Olivia dressSequin clutchBlouseMatthew Williamson scarves.

 In life: 

–  I love these chevron cookies and chevron carved pumpkin.

–  A great post with chevron plates, stationery, children’s clothing, jewelry.

–  Dani Notes plates, trays, iPhone cases posted on almost every blog I read this year, like here on Design Darling.

As seen here on Ei3s:

– with Lauren Liess fabrics and CWD Textiles (see Griege Zabeel Chevron and Coral Tall Chevron).

– Schumacher Chevron – in pillows on Katie Rosenfeld’s window seat and in pink here.

 

So, what’s your vote?  Are we done with Chevron?  Is it over done, or here to stay?
