Even though my paternal grandmother was of Scottish descent, I have never been enthusiastic about plaid. I do, however, have a relatively recent passion for paisley! The distinctive twisted teardrop shape is of Iranian origin, but the print is named after the Scottish town of Paisley, a textile center where paisley patterns were produced during the 1800s.

I am not normally especially interested in traditional interior design, but lately I seem to be drawn to more traditional décor done in paisley prints. Upholstered seating options in paisley seem to be popular:

I think paisley home accents in seasonal colors would be perfect for the holidays:

Pottery Barn seems to be an especially good source for paisley home décor. I don't know if I am quite ready to change my current decorating style, but I did recently purchase some Christmas paisley napkins on Amazon for my holiday table, so maybe I am willing to add just a few traditional touches to my home for the season!
