I like the idea of painting Chevrons in a home setting, as seen below, because its a geometric shape is rarely seen outside of the advertising realm. I think it’s popular as a logo because it denotes power and simplicity. So why not add it to a domestic environment?
Most of my favorite designs are simple geometric ones. And as you may notice, repeating designs across a whole wall are the basis for almost all wall paper. What is convenient is that a Chevron is easy to plot out: straight vertical lines connected by perpendicular horizontal lines at an angle. Once the pattern is started, it is easy to repeat across a whole wall, or even a whole room.
Chevrons designs are also easy to manipulate, which can create an entirely different feel. Simply adjusting the angle up or down will create either a dramatic or serene feel within the room. The color you choose to paint your chevrons can also have an enormous impact. You can choose to paint each individual chevron within your design or every other one, keeping half of them the original wall color.
I far prefer this method of painting, with an easy to create Chevron design, than to wall papering, which is less custom, more work and more expensive in the end.
