The design of paisley prints first originated in India and Persia. Some people say that the twisted teardrop “paisley print” was a stylized floral spray inside a cypress tree. Others say that paisley’s organic design was inspired from botanical motifs such as: mango seeds, palm trees, or pine trees. Another interesting fact is it’s a Zoroastrian symbol of life and eternity and is the Azerbaijani symbol with the same meaning.
In interior design paisley prints are often used on furniture, drapes, bedding, wallpaper and lampshades. In fashion paisley is primarily seen on scarves, sweaters and shawls. If you’re a bold fashionista you could try a whole outfit wearing paisley prints!
Below are some inspiring rooms with paisley prints and how to incorporate this design in to your home if you’d like.

P.S. Last week was pretty busy for me. I spent all of Friday at the San Francisco Design Center and went to several amazing conferences that were very helpful and informative. If you’d like to take a look at the conferences follow the link here.
Also Sunday was the Alameda Flea Market and my girls and I spent almost the whole day shopping. We got some amazing stuff! I always look forward to the Alameda Flea Market.
