A Zap Of Zig-Zag

Posted by Suzi | March 7, 2012

The zig zag is like the cha cha of pattern- and not just because of the kooky alliteration… Whether it’s electrical hazards, running away from crocodiles or the swirls and zig-zags favoured by the Bloomsbury group; while most boring things in life take the form of a straight line- breaking them up is always interesting. From wall displays to arranging objects by height or even making a splash in a otherwise pale room (see below) the-up-down-up-down rhythm will add instant pizzazz.
