Friday should be a day that means you are nearing the end of a satisfying week and look forward to the weekend as simply a time to enjoy other activities but not as a method of mental escape.
Alright -only a man would write this quote. Are you serious Byron? I can pretty much take an educated guess that Byron is single, childless and works at someplace un-stressful, like maybe Disney World. Weekends were made for mental escape – who are we kidding? Oh Byron ….
Let’s get down to business – I can only project so much anger on Byron – it is Friday!
Today’s FFF’s are all based on the pattern of Chevron. I know that some think that Chevron has been over done lately, but I still love it’s boldness and how fun it makes the room feel. Take a look …
1. CHEVRON PILLOWS:
I am in love with gray and yellow. I always have been. My dorm room in college (last year – HA!) was all gray and yellow. I have to admit, my mom and I went a bit overboard on the matchy-matchy gray and yellow EVERYTHING! My towels were gray with my name monogrammed in yellow, my shower caddy – you guessed it – yellow and even my plastic storage bins – bright yellow. My bedding was such a cool gray and yellow with yellow pillows. I found out much later that I was talked about quite a bit on the dorm floor for being … how should I say this gently? NUTSO!
My house has no place for gray and yellow but I can wear it … If I had worn that color combo in college and laid on my bed it would have been like camouflage. I definitely could have spied on my roommate.
Okay …back to Chevron. Wow, did I get on a tangent!
Don’t you just love a little Chevron mixed in with your florals, stripes or geometrics? Chevron can be contemporary, cottage, traditional even minimalist. Throw a Chevron pillow on your couch and see how much it changes the entire looks of the room. You can find these pillows at Target or Homegoods – don’t feel like you have to spend a ton of money.
2. CHEVRON WALLS:
Chevron makes a huge impact on your walls in any color. I even like how it is painted on boards and leaned up against the wall. These walls can make a statement in a bedroom, living room, bathroom or nursery. I personally just like one accent wall in a chevron pattern. If you did the entire room you might feel like you are in “dizzy-ville”.
3. CHEVRON FURNITURE:
Boy … I really am a little obsessed with gray and yellow.
Of course I ended on a gray and yellow piece – and I swear that was unintentional. I will take any one of these pieces. I think they are so funky and so cool. They are sophisticated and fun! There are not many things that can be described that way and used it so many different environments.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my FFF Chevron patterns today. Enjoy your weekend and MENTALLY ESCAPE – you deserve it!
Hope your life is more heaven than havoc!
