Trend Alert – Chevron

So, according to Pantone, the color of 2010 is turquoise.

And according to my Google blog reader…the PATTERN of the year is the chevron!  In the past month, I’ve seen various incarnations of the chevron trend on no less than FIVE pretty influential blogs.

First up was the ubiquitous dooce with the affordably priced Chevron Tea Towel from Ikea.

Then I saw it on one of my new favorites, Young House Love on fabric.

Nicole of Making it Lovely likes it in a rug.

The lovely Holly Becker of Decor8 shared a DIY chevron wall hanging.

Then Design*Sponge took it a step further with my personal favorite of the bunch so far, the full chevron wall.  You could double up your trendiness by creating this in shades of turquoise!  It’s affordable and easily changeable since it’s contact paper!  Because when you’re being trendy, it’s often nice to swap it for the next big thing without a big fuss.

What do you think of the trend?
