You Zig and I'll Zag

Confession: I love zigzags.


Some refer to it as a chevron pattern (chevron is basically a fancy term for the "V" shape).

Whatever you call it, I like it. And would like some in my home please.


I'm loving these Schumacher chevron pillows from Plum Cushion on Etsy.

But where, oh where, should I put them? I'm thinking my bedroom could use some sprucing.
 
These throws are a little out of my price range, but I do think their fun colors would add a bit of spark to any interior.


Or maybe a rug could fill my zigzag void? This one from West Elm fits the bill.

So what do you think? Do you love zigzags as much as I do, or do they just remind you of this poor guy?

Ditto on the throws and Charlie Brown. My favorite use of the chevron is in hardwood floors. It is soooo old world, so French and you know moi..... J'adore toutes les choses francaises!

Oh, Matt maybe if you buy the throws in bulk they'll give you a discount. I am partial to the orange or green.
