It’s time for a new “Trend Alert” post at Home Stories A to Z and today we are going to be telling the story of arrows in home decor. Isn’t it fascinating how the fashion, home and craft Creatives latch onto a certain appealing shape and run with it? We’re all completely OVER chevron at this point, so arrows offer a chevron’esque appeal yet without so much zig and zag. If you are on instagram (you can follow me at homestoriesatoz), then you can’t help but see arrows all over people’s pics! The trend is still fairly fresh so if you want to jump on the arrow bandwagon before it rides off into the sunset, I’ve got you covered! Let’s explore 27 different inspirational ways to use arrows in your home decor.

Whimsical arrows hung on the wall in bright hues look adorable in a kiddo’s room! I think this look could easily work for a boy or girl especially with the popularity of Disney’s movie Brave. This would be a classy way of working in your little Merida or Green Arrow wannabee.
Metal arrow signs provide a great place for magnets and kid treasures! I like how they are mixed here with license plates and fun geometric curtains and furnishing to give a construction zone feeling without being overly themey.

I love the arrows they certainly appeal to me more than chevron designs. I really adore the gorgeous kitchen with the arrow flooring it’s really trendy.
I think you’ve pointed me in the right direction! (sorry).
Definitely on target! (sorry again…I’ll stop now)
But thanks for this heads up on the trending side of things. I’ll put my mind to how I can use some arrows in the future.

Some great pictures and good ideas for using arrows in different ways and types.
Hmmm…I like antlers, arrows not so much. Directional arrows are okay, and anything herringbone-ish I love, love, LOVE, (because it reminds me of fabric) but not arrows specifically. Maybe it’s what they represent? Hunting? Violence? Not sure…just not my thing, especially when they’re cute-sified…with the exception of cupid. Cupi-fied is a-o-k. 🙂
What a fantastic collection – thank you so much for including our wrapping paper!
It’s adorable Liora!
Trends seem so strange at times to me. I did not like the antler trends and don’t think I will enjoy this one either. However FEDEX should fit right in since they have an arrow hidden in their logo. I never realized it until my son pointed it out to me this week—there is an arrow in their logo where the E and the X meet–you have to look for it if you have a brain like mine, lol!
Yes, those who like antlers will probably like arrows. It’s a more neo-Southwestern look. And yes, I’ve noticed the Fed-ex logo :).

I couldn’t agree more! I’m loving some arrows lately! Just did some sequin art using an arrow shape. I LOVE the dresser & that wrapping paper! Great inspiration!

Thanks for showing off my herringbone (arrow) dresser, Beth! I was browsing through all the fun pictures and then up popped my dresser! What an exciting treat! Have a great weekend!
Oooh definitly digging this. The dresser is my favorite. It looks great and that stenciled wall is a close second.
FUN round-up! I love the trend. I am sharing this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com.
