So Herringbone is a pattern that is becoming more and more popular and while it has been gracing us with its presence for a few years now, it has officially gone mainstream.
Here are some fabulous ideas as to how you can introduce herringbone into your home:
The floor is probably the most impactful place that you can using herringbone in your home. The timber herringbone pattern has been used for decades in period homes, but I think that we forgot just how beautiful it is until recently. Herringbone will work in either a traditional or contemporary setting, however if you are looking for something a little bit different then why not add a pop of colour.
Tiles are also a great way to incorporate this versatile pattern. It can be easily be achieved using a standard or elongated subway tile and its a great way of getting away from the standard brick effect that it so widely used now. There are also tiles on the market that will give you a fabulous chevron effect (see below). Tilestyle have some beautiful options in their showroom in Ballymount.
If you are looking for something a little less permanent but still want to create impact, then wallpaper could be a good option for you. They can be hard to come by but Etsy have a great range, in particular Livettes.
Introducing colour and pattern into your home makes for a more fun and interesting place to live, so why not embrace it.
