Zigging and Zagging

If you know even just a little about me you know that I love pattern! Zig-zag print has always been on the top of my  I LOVE PATTERN  list. It’s a favorite of mine I try to talk everyone in it. My favorite example of the perfect zig-zag has to be by Alan Campbell. His print has a way of coming off  as geometric and a touch ethnic yet simple and classic and can be used as a neutral in most settings!

 



First up is the work of the always lovely and stylish Ms. Harper. She used the print in paper form and I think it give all of her great accessories a unique background that really makes the room.



 



In a room already full of stripes and a bold red the home owners went with the petite zig-zag print for their $10 barrel chair finds! Just another way to see it used as a neutral.

At first glance you may not see it, but Campbell’s petite zig-zag is in the sweet nursery below designed by Angie Hranowsky. Yet again it’s the perfect neutral.



 



In the rooms above the zig-zag has taking on supporting roles so to speak in the rooms, but you can also make it the staring member of the room by using it to a upholster a main piece in the room. I would love to take this baby off of Maison Luxe's hands and into my already stuffed house!



 



Of course I know that Alan Campbell’s fabric is not in everyone’s price range, which is why when I stumbled onto this fabric I knew I would have to make a blog post about it.



 



I’m in love and it’s only $5.00 a yard!!!!!

Oh my GOSH - you are my hero! I have been looking for a similar fabric to that Alan Campbell petite zig zag fabric for months now! I just bought 10 yards, lol! They have it in brown/white too - I got five of the brown and five of the black.

So happy right now - can't beat $5/yard!

I've never really thought of zig zag as a pattern option, but it looks great in all of these photos. That's a great $5 find too!

Thanks ANON I'm aware that it's called chevron, but the fabric/print I was discussing was by Alan Campbell and their name is zig-zag.
