Have you seen Jane Eyre yet? I escaped for a few hours this weekend to take in a matinee of the historical romance, and it was full of decorating eye candy. In this scene, my eye was first drawn to the damask upholstery in this carriage, but it soon wandered to the paisley pattern on Jane's shawl.
Paisley is infinitely adaptable, and many of the modern interpretations of the pattern feature a single teardrop-shaped swoop on a textile or pillow. Check out some fun paisley designs below.
