Haute Herringbone!

The Amy Atlas crew loves herringbone. A close cousin to the wider chevron pattern, herringbone zigs and zags with its sharp jagged lines. As you can see above, this Savile Row-style pattern lends a traditional vibe to baking/party decor, fashion, or interiors.  Whether it’s in monochromatic shades or multiple colors, the small-scaled pattern also gives a lovely illusion of texture. Take the painted herringbone chair above as an example. It looks like it has layers of texture, yet it is simply a flat, painted herringbone technique from the Martha Stewart folks. Pretty fabulous, right?  How have you used this lovely pattern?

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  • I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your website.
    It looks like some of the written text within your content are running off the screen.

    Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening
    to them too? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Cheers
