There’s a Pattern Here: How to Use Chevron and Other Patterns in Your Whole Home Design
Seen as early as 1800 BC in pottery design and a common element of early military insignia, the chevron pattern has experienced a resurgence of popularity lately along with other bold patterns in home design. The chevron can be seen as a series of “zig zags” or as a wave-like effect with pointed edges instead of soft ones. For your whole home remodel, employing patterns strategically can bring immediate interest and personality to your space. Professional designers are adept at helping you select from the exciting range of possibilities to find the pattern that best expresses your unique point of view. Besides the chevron pattern, here are some other pattern choices to consider as you make plans for your whole home remodel:
Animal Prints: One bold animal print piece in a room adds a wild amount of style to your space. Choose from the bold and graphic simplicity of the zebra print or the warmer option of cheetah or tiger.
Touchable Textures: The tactile element of suede and wood materials used in your home combines interesting visual patterns found in nature with the comfort of authentic textures.
Bold Graphic Patterns: Bold modern expression comes alive with houndstooth, stripes, squares, the Greek key, and other patterns based on geometric principles.
Modern Florals: The new florals retain their romance but with the extra excitement of a large scale often in combination with a historic botanical look.
Natural inspiration: In addition to florals, nature’s patterns can be found in fern and other plant patterns. More whimsically, faux bois (imitating the look of wood) is a fun way to play with design inspired by nature.
When you work with a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals, your dreams for transforming your home come to life in each detail, including the bold and beautiful patterns you choose to live with everyday!
