Paisley certainly aroused some mixed feelings! I wonder how much of that is down to the colourways often chosen, or to the relatively complex and asymmetrical nature of the pattern, or both? I like natural shapes which are complex and asymmetrical, but they are almost always in subdued colours, or a limited palette - maybe full-on psychedelic paisley is just a bit of an assault on overstimulated brains?
