Chevrons Are Done, So Straighten Up Already

Chevron is dead. By saying this, I know I'm risking being vilified on blogs across the country, where happy homemakers are busy writing about how they've made their spaces come alive by painting zig-zags on the walls, but it's time someone stands up and speaks the truth: chevron stripes are being overused and they've long lost their impact. Give it a few months and they will be as dated as antlers, Edison bulbs and old trophies as vases. Consider the looks below a glance back at history, study them and file away in the retro file for another day.
