If you normally shy away from patterns, this is an easy one to try out. I’m thinking about buying this Serena & Lily feather rug, at left, for my bedroom.

Here are a few other ways to bring the zig-zag into your home:

Fabricadabra silk/cotton pillow cover, $45

West Elm Tribal bath mat, $24

Flor Sophistikat rug tiles blur the lines between chevron and ikat, $14/tile.

LoftHome’s watercolor Chevron sheets come in yummy hues, $24 and up.

And of course there’s always room for a little do-it-yourself project. Check out how Design Sponge DIY contributor Halligan Norris Smith brightened up her boring white ceiling fan with a little turquoise chevron. So cool!
