There’s nothing like a sharp, graphic element to take your decorating to the next level. Chevron patterns — particularly large-scale ones — are perfect for this. Here are some of my favorite examples of eco-friendly products and projects featuring chevron patterns:
Bryn fabric AND East Village fabric by Rubie Green. Made of organic cotton. $90/yard. Bryn is shown above on curtains in Michelle Adams’ living room (image via Lonny Mag), and East Village on a vintage chair (image via Cote de Texas). I plan to recreate a similar design on my own white curtains using this tutorial from kfd designs.
