How do you feel about chevron patterns?  Do you like them or are they not quite your style?  Do you/would you use them in your home?

They seem to be quite the trend this year, in fashion as well as home decor. I rahter like the look of them but don't think they fit my style that much.

I did find this really neat chevron table runner tutorial though, that looks realtively easy to accomplish: http://applebrides.com/2013/08/19/how-to-make-a-diy-chevron-table-runner/

That is really cute, Carol! I like chevron, but like you, it doesn't match the style of my house much. However, I can see using a table runner for special meals. It would be cute on a Thanksgiving table! I could even see it being used with Halloween decor. Looks super easy to make too. :)

I like it to a point. If I could find a nice brown and cream rug in it I would get one for the living room, but haven't found one in our price range yet. ODD got a hot pink and cream chevron rug for her dorm room and loves it!
