SUMMER LOVE : Chevron Stripes

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of fabulous chevron striping this summer.  Of course, I love it.   In my home I've introduced some zig-zagged throw pillows, but here are some more examples of great chevron patterns (click photos for full sized images) // (I'm aware its an extensive list... I'm a fan though!) :

Floors are a really popular and easy way to integrate the pattern into your home:
