Chevron Love

While I have noticed a trend of DIY chevron patterns online lately (painted walls, painted carpets, stencils galore!), I am not sure if I could commit to that graphic of a pattern in a large scale on the walls. It is the more subtle, classic chevron (or herringbone, very similar) patterns that I have been dreaming about, underfoot!

Desire to Inspire
Yes, with the bathroom renovation on the horizon floors (or tiles!) have been on my mind lately! I love the look of chevron on the floor, in all types of materials; from wood...


To painted...
And of course, tile...

The last picture is actually 12 by 12 tiles cut in half; a genius idea I wish I stumbled upon while doing my kitchen renovation, very cost effective (longer tiles are more expensive). I have already purchased tile at under 1 dollar a square foot for my bathroom (yay, habitat re-store!) and I am thrilled that it is a rectangular shape so I can play with this pattern!! Now if I can only convince my husband it is a good idea......
