If your chevrons aren’t wowing the way they used to, peruse a few other options to bring fresh life to your cozy, comfortable crop.

Continue the summer vibes all year long with palm pillows. Inspired by the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel wallpaper, palm leaf pillows make your home feel like a retreat, even if you’re not near the water.

modern + graphic

Go sleek with a clean pattern like this one. The sea foam color in this option softens up the harsher lines.

These rugged landscape pillows look equally cool in a rustic or modern space. Mix one with solid pillows or let it stand alone in an armchair.

hues of blue

Over-dyed, indigo, deep blues add a rich depth to the surface they occupy. Pop in a lighter color or print if things are feeling too dark.
