Jacobean styled designs have been around forever but are making a resurgence in design today. Influenced from the arts and crafts period, it originated from English embroidery which had oriental influences to the designs. Often, known as the “Tree of Life” design because of its trailing branch like pattern incorporating motifs of birds, flowers and fruits. Jacobean Embroidery was especially popular in fashion during the 17th century during the reign of King James of England. Look at the beautiful detail in these outfits that feature the Jacobean embroidered motif.
I personally love these patterns as they can be warm and inviting but also offer something of a story line to walls, furniture and accessories. I collect antique fabrics for design inspirations and the vintage fabric sample above came from England. It is almost like a quilt but of course is printed and not embroidered. The Jacobean design has come a long way in history and is now back on the scene in home decor.
The Doctor bag was created with a designer fabric and of course, is the tree of life pattern. As pattern infiltrates design at all levels this year, we see fun filled retro items like the alarm clock being re-interpreted with this classic pattern but is new and fresh adding in a little pizazz into our home. Of course, ginger jars are all the rage for patios and indoor decors and are often found with the tree of life pattern gracing them.

As wallpaper falls back into favor with interior designers and consumers, we brought out a new pattern “JACQUES” from the new Aja Collection by Jaima Brown Home. Use these patterns in powder rooms, dining rooms and even bedrooms. Its easy to create a focal point by wallpapering one wall making it a stunning backdrop for any interior. It really looks fantastic on a wall!
The other beautiful thing about this type of pattern is that you can use it multicolored like above or go with a silhouette feel giving this traditional pattern a more modern affect for the home. Whether its bedding, accessories, furniture or home fashion you can find the tree of life pattern thriving.
Bathrooms suddenly feel fresh and modern when wallpapered with our Jacques wallpaper.
So wether your style is modern or traditional this pattern is definitely universal. The white antique tub in this master bath looks great with the updated classic silhouette Jacobean wallpaper …….two classics together creating fabulously fresh new decor looks.
Until tomorrow…..Happy wallpapering!
