Pretty Paisleys for Modern Homes

Pretty Paisleys for Modern Homes

Feb 17, 2011

Paisley isn't anything new. Thought to have originated in India and Pakistan and migrated to Western Europe, it has been used in textiles for centuries. Though it has a rich history, paisley isn't just for museums. It can be right at home in modern design.

Muted and small — or large and in charge, paisley is popping up on everything from accessories to ceilings. Behold the power of paisley!

1. This pop of pink paisley (say that 5 times fast!) would be fantastic in a small space like a closet. Rapture wallpaper, £30 from Harlequin via House to Home
2. A classic settee shape in a sunny yellow paisley - $1,499 at Horchow.
3. I love the unexpected drama of the paisley ceiling. It helps balance the red accents and adds interest. Sketch 42 via Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle.
4. Ease into paisley with these elegant paisley peacock pillows. So chic and versatile! Via Indie Art & Design.
5. Add some pop to your office with these cheery task chairs. Paisley Pop Airgo Chairs - $199 at PBTeen.
