Good morning, friends! How were your weekends? After a lovely few days strolling around Charleston and taking in the beautiful colonial architecture, I was in the mood for something a bit more modern and graphic this morning; these black and white chevron stripes for example. I love the way patterns in general are able to add an element of interest without introducing new colors to a look or a room, but my favorite part about the chevron stripe is it’s ability to modernize and update in an instant! Fancy china place settings can have a tendency to look a little old or stuffy but the chevron table runners in the photos above keep them young and fresh and interesting. And how about a whole wall of black and white chevron stripes? Has anyone ever done anything like this? I am dying to do it in our guest room and thinking it might be time to get started! Hope your Monday is off to a great start! More to come tomorrow!
