Chevron is a pretty popular pattern, but don’t call it trendy! It’s been around for a looong time. Credible sources pinpoint its rise to popularity to 13th century Italy. (Credible sources include me and the 40 seconds of google research I just did).
So if you love chevron so hard, sit back and enjoy! If not, you can still use these ideas as inspiration to display your own favorite pattern, whether it’s plaid, polka-dots, houndstooth, argyle, ogee, paisley, or camouflage.
And speaking of patterns, I thought I’d introduce these projects with my favorite one of all: 5-7-5. Yes, the patron saint of patternry in poetry, the haiku. Here we go.
