Just a touch of elegance for the room
Looking to add a little paisley to your bedroom? Bring in a subtle pattern in a rug or a bold version in a chair. Add some wall art and you’re all set with your bedroom theme.
This really is a great pattern to use in a bedroom, especially for a girl with more sophisticated tastes. Not sure why, but I find paisley more grown-up than polka dots and far more interesting than plaids. But not quite as grown-up as toile, so there you go. But I digress just a wee bit!
Keep in mind that we are talking about pattern here, so you need to keep scale in mind along with colors. Not to mention, just how you’re going to blend it in with the rest of the room. Something like the purple and green chair in the picture here (doesn’t that girl look like she loves her new seat!) would go nicely in a room with lots of solids in those same colors, along with a small stripe.
Unlike polka dots and stripes, this pattern isn’t always as easily mixed into random bedroom themes, so also something to consider as you choose the pieces for the room.
Rugs For The Floor
This is a great place to see the very different ways to add this pattern. Some of these really draw attention to themselves and the teardrop shape with not just bright colors, but also high contrast. The ones with the uber-large single teardrop are very dramatic. But then, you can also choose something in a muted monochrome to bring in a subtle pattern.

Lamps and Lighting
Not entirely sure why tall stick lamps are the trend for this particular pattern. But definitely count on finding the pattern in the shade rather than on the lamp itself. Which is nice in the long term because you can easily switch out the shade for a new look.
