This year, the chevron craze has hit the nursery full force. Modern and graphic with classic Art Deco origins, these zig zags become more subtle when used in a smaller scale or (at left) in a more muted palette.
Lively enough for a baby's room, yet sophisticated enough to please adult eyes, we're seeing chevron everywhere from wall and ceiling to rugs and bedding. "In this economy, parents want timeless patterns, not rooms that end up looking too 'babyish,'" says Nancy Breslin, a NYC-based interior designer. Plus, with a rise of twin pregnancies, she sees a lot of boy-girl rooms and chevron is a popular pick for unisex nurseries.

I really like the chevron look in the nursery- too cute! Have you started to decorate baby's nursery yet? Are you going with a specific theme or keeping things fairly neutral? What's your plan?
