Here's an early Valentine's present: red and white paisley. I'm seeing it everywhere, and it's not hard to understand why. When rendered in red and white, paisley becomes clean, crisp, and graphic. Alessandra Branca has used it in her office (above), and it's the perfect backdrop for black and solid red accessories. And designer Kim Zimmerman used only red and white prints (including a paisley) from Les Indiennes in this Atlanta living room below. Bottom line- it's a great way to add some zip to one's room.
