Missoni took the world by storm when Target launched their zig zag collection for the masses last fall.  Ever since, home decor feels incomplete without at least a chevron or two in the house.  A nice departure from the good old beach stripe, you can find them in everything from pillows and rugs to storage and outdoor furniture.

If you’re lucky, you may even be able to still snag this retro bike on ebay.

Inspired by the white, sandy beaches and azure water of the French Riviera, luxury fabric maker and style setter Schumacher just debuted their new Cote d’Azur collection for indoors and outdoors.  It’s fashionably timeless and classic.

This reupholstered vintage barrel chair is a one-of-a-kind statement piece that will add some zing to a living room or bedroom.  It can be found on etsy at Upcycled Home.

Spring just arrived but if you’re already getting summer fever, check out these plush beach towels from Garnet Hill that are sure to make you look super stylish on the beach or at the pool.

They also make fun, canvas storage bins in a variety of whimsical patterns including this shell pink zig zag box.

Bring a little pizzazz into the bedroom with a soft herringbone throw blanket in a bright color like these from Serena and Lily.

Accent the bed with a bolster pillow or two if you have solid colored sheets or a contrasting patterned duvet.  These are courtesy of the Bolster Queens.

The good old beanbag now fashionably called a “pouf” adds some flavor and function to a family room or kids bedroom like this chic one from West Elm.

This bright velveteen fabric is a truly unique in pattern and color.  From the Village Haberdashy on the other side of the pond, use it to make your own pouf or pillow but budget for shipping from the UK and hurry before it’s all gone.

In the DIY spirit, this chevron Japanese “washi” tape from In The Clear and Wachuneed Supply Co. on etsy is so cool there’s gotta be some crafty project to incorporate it into.

Adios stripe and hello zig zag!
