Welcome back! This is the third part of The Life of a . . . series.
Today, we will be showing you surprising ways to use a chevron rug.
Chevron can be fun to use, but is challenging when you lean more towards a traditional design. I’ve recently written a blog post introducing herringbone as a chevron alternative, but if you love chevron and want to use it, hopefully you’ll be inspired today.
A chevron rug, much less in a somewhat feminine purple hue, used in a master bedroom can be challenging to say the least! But if you balance the geometric and femininity with strong masculine accessories you will offset those characteristics. Here the our purple rug is accented with a mirrored end table. A white quilt gives soft texture and a simple look. Lots of pillows, bolsters, and euro shams will help balance the strong geometric pattern. A clear lamp with plenty of romantic candles will add to your master room ambiance. To offset the feminine color scheme and overall look, layer in browns and neutrals like the in the frames and the textured throw. The addition of the brown leather bench gives a masculine touch to room and balances everything quite nicely. Your husband will probably never notice the purple chevron rug now! Try woven wood shades for your windows.
This purple chevron rug is a great starting point to a very girly playroom. The floral fabric would look great as drapes or roman shades and balances the geometric lines of the chevron. The paper lantern light plays off the floral pattern and balances the strong lines. The typography and frames to showcase the little’s ones latest masterpieces continue the color scheme. The art station and modern chair complementing the chevron rug completes the playroom.
This dining room with a chevron rug has to be one of my favorite spaces of the series. Again, to balance the lines and color of the rug you must pull in as much texture and masculine colors as possible. The round white table with X-back chairs directly play off the chevron rug. While the floral paisley and textured brown fabric add movement and masculinity to the space. Using a more traditional chandelier also helps balance the modern look of the chevron. Adding in texture through charges and wall art balance the rug. Once you’ve added chair cushions and drapes from the fabrics the entire room comes together.
Wow, never thought I would be a little smitten with Chevron. When the lines and color are balanced, the chevron pattern definitely becomes a part of the space and not overwhelming at all.
So how are you using Chevron? Is this purple something you could use?
