TREND SO OVER: Big, Bold Chevrons (Make Them Skinny!) Chevron still has some lifespan left, but not enough to justify painting your whole wall in thick, bold zigs and zags. If you like the pattern, get a blanket or small rug, but on your walls? It just looks dated, especially in the gray-and-white tones DIY bloggers have gone ga-ga for. Like the look but want to stay on-trend? Wider, skinnier chevrons that span across an entire wall are still super chic.
