Herringbone and chevron patterns sit at the intersection of interesting and elegant – they add pizazz to a space, without being “too much.” Herringbone is said to resemble the layout of bones in a fish such as a herring. Chevron is essentially a series of Vs in a row, commonly referred to as a zig-zag pattern, and is a very popular way to up the wow factor of any room. From better-than-the-norm wood floors to bathroom tiles and super-cool cabinets, these classic geometric designs bring a healthy dose of visual interest to these eight rooms.
