Pretty Paisley

¨Paisley (or paisley pattern) is a term used for a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian origins. It became very popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries, following imports from India, and were imitated locally….Resembling a twisted teardrop, the fig-shaped paisley gets its western name from the town of Paisley, in West Scotland, a center where the paisley designs were first reproduced.¨ (Wikipedia)

Happy Friday, friends! I have fabric on my mind so I thought I’d dedicate today’s post to one of my favorite patterns, the pretty PAISLEY, along with some gorgeous inspiration to help make my case.

And what is better than a paisley? An oversized paisley! 🙂 Love it on the walls of Peter Dunham’s LA store (above) or as window treatments (bellow).

In one of my favorite dining rooms ever, by designer Peter Dunham, paisleys organized into a circular pattern form the great Samarkand print. LOVE!
