Noas' Libellule {Pinterest inspired}

Hiya everyone! Hope you are all having a good week - full of creativity and inspiration! Don't forget that tomorrow I will be showing you how to make your very own pouch with lace. I am really excited about this project, and I hope you are too.

Today I want to tell you about my current texture obsession. It seems that everyone is obsessed, and I can see a great {buy it or make it} post coming up. May I present to you what I am dreaming about at the moment, the chevron pattern.

I know, it is a bit bold but it also can really make a strong impact. It's essentially a series of V's laid out in a row. It's a little bit wavy but with more of a hardened edge. I am one for clean lines - probably the scientific buried in me...

If you choose the right colors and placement for a Chevron design then you can evoke that wavy, undulating relaxed feeling that lies beneath this design. Of course, you could also choose to go all out with creating a bold look using this pattern - look at that quilt below! A statement or what!!

So what do you think? Are you missing some chevron in your life and your interior? I definitely do... I have an idea of what I want to make... just need the time - but it will complement quite well the texture and colour scheme of our living room.. Will say no more.

PS: You may notice that the original images are a bit different from the one I posted here, I am working on adding textures to my pictures... Only experimenting at this stage, but it is quite promising I reckon.
