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?
