Herringbone is a popular pattern and has been for many years. It’s made up of zigzagging rectangles (as pictured in the floors above and pictures below) and is a classic pattern that is here to stay.
In the kitchen tile above you can see that the rectangles don’t meet up at a sharp point like the Chevron pattern, but instead are a broken zigzag. Herringbone is considered a traditional pattern, but isn’t exclusive to traditional homes. How you incorporate the pattern and what color you choose to use within the pattern will make it adaptable to any style home.
Herringbone is a pattern that can compliment any style room. For a classic look decorate with solid, muted colors. For a bold look use colored herringbone textiles.
