current obsession { chevron strips }

Lately I have been absolutely swooning over anything and everything chevron. I can't help but love how it draws the eye in with its hypnotic form and absolute confidence.

Just take a look at how it injects personality into each of these rooms, no matter how it is used.

  1. So it's about this time that I think everyone who reads your blog would like to ask the question, when are you going to get into interior design already? Seriously, you should think about it... with your interest, could be fun! :)

  2. You are too sweet! I would absolutely love to do something like that, and have definitely thought about it... I can only imagine how much fun it would be to decorate with someone else's money!

  3. Well my dear, seriously think you should think about it. I know you have lots going on... I'm now thinking of going into sustainable gardening/permaculture:) That's my newest obsession.
