Update your home with a little chevron injection, whether it’s in your kitchen, living room or bedroom, or just on the table at a dinner party… This oh-so-trendy zigzag print is all the rage when it comes to home décor; and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere.
- An easy way to introduce the print into your home without committing to too much of a décor change is to bring in some fun new crockery. Bowls (R49,99) and mugs (R29,99), Eetrite.
- It’s impossible to do a complete redesign every time a fab new print or trend takes over, so rather focus on making it work for you, and not the other way around. Find one or two chevron items and add them to your current scheme. Don’t be afraid of clashing prints… as long as the colours are complementary, you’ll usually be surprised by how well they work. Tissue box, R149,99, Mr Price Home; Throw, R79,99, Mr Price Home; Free-standing lamp, R350, Cushi; Cube, R299,99, Mr Price Home.
- Add a little bit of character to your lounge with some funky chevron scatter cushions. Keep it neutral for a subtle style upgrade, or go bright to create the illusion that you’ve done a much bigger design overhaul. Grey cushion, R399, @home; Black and grey cushion, R350, Woolworths; Yellow cushion, R280, Zana.
- At the very least, this fun print can be used to brighten up your outdoor entertainment area. Use it on your table or chairs; either way, you’re sure to get a few compliments when you next entertain. Table runners, R195 to R250 each, Zana; Chair pads, R59,99 each, Mr Price Home.
