Design Trend: Chevron Stripes? I'm on the Fence

I've been seeing Chevron stripes everywhere from home furnishings, to fashion runways, to gas stations (since late 2008, early 2009). I'm not sure how I feel about this trend. I think it's a tad too late 1980s looking for me. But I can't ignore it any longer. It's in all the magazines, blogs, retail stores, blah blah.

It also transcends all styles from modern to historic country. So, I guess there is a little for everyone. Even Charlie Brown subscribes to the trend!

So, I'm sharing it with you, and I'll let you decide for yourself.

Limeade, black, and white ... definitely the trend d'jour... (see yesterday's post)
