Readers' Requests Series - Chinoiserie & Chevron

Miles Redd - Chinoiserie wallpaper and Madeline Weinrib chevron rug
 One reader asked that I show how to combine two of her favorite elements - Chinoiserie and chevron. This is a fantastic combination - the geometric boldness of the zig zag pattern is a perfect foil to the often more feminine and pretty elements of Chinoiserie. You might want to check out my new Pinterest board on chevron.
