I’ve been noticing zigzags lately. They look fresh, dynamic, and, yes, a little bit cheeky. They’re not for the faint-hearted. They shout ‘look at me!’ They’re the naughty child in the stripe family. If you want to add energy to a room, just throw some zigzags in. Viola! Instant pizzazz! I can’t wait to get my hands on something fabulously ziggy zaggy in my next flat. And you can be sure I’ll try to fit some of graphic energy into my next project. Clients be warned!
