Design Crush: Herringbone & Chevron

Herringbone and chevron are timeless when combined with beautifully crafted materials. In flooring or wall tiling, the effect adds a sophisticated aesthetic in any space.

My herringbone addiction follows a love of strong lines and geometric patterns. Timber, marble, porcelain tiles – this style of pattern is opulent, classic and luxurious and yet pairs with both contemporary and traditional spaces.

My dream living room has rich, dark herringbone timber flooring, paired with walls in Dulux Lexicon Quarter and furnishings in a monochrome palette. I similarly love the look of a splashback in the kitchen with marble tiles in a herringbone pattern, paired with white satin cabinetry and matte black tapware.

It may be a little more in labour costs but the design aesthetic is worth it. Think timber flooring, with beautiful natural woods. Sophisticated marble or subway tiling in this pattern in wet areas.

The herringbone or chevron style is not only beautiful in hard finishes, but styling as well. The Oly San Francisco upholstered collection is great for this, with subtle detail in a number of fabric options for sofas and occasional chairs. Create a statement with an artwork featuring the pattern or even a beautiful rug.

I will let the gallery below speak for itself.
