Current Obsession: Jacobean Fabrics

If you've been following my blog for a while, you'd know that I am a sucker for pillows. Part of it was we have a large space with tons of furniture and pillow is an easy way to accessorize and adds colors/texture; the other part was that my taste is constantly evolving -- what appealed to me six months ago may not be the apple of my eye now.

I am currently obsessed about Jacobean fabrics, usually used for upholstery with large-scale branch, fruit and floral motifs. Jacobean fabrics are so versatile that they can work into contemporary, Chinoiserie, English country, Hamptons, French Provincial, rustic and shabby chic decor themes. They add a touch of elegance and softness to the space. Jacobean fabrics are often used in conjunction with geometric fabrics in the same color group to maximize visual interest.

Here are a few Jacobean fabrics that I really like. Which one is your favourite?

Kravet Jellybean Fabric: ~$45/yard, aqua/teal/mint/ochre/brown grey.

I ordered two 12x18 pillow covers in this fabric from Etsy for my dining room. More on them later.
 P. Kaufmann Leaf in Cloud: ~30/yard, blue grey/apple green/grey/brown.

Wouldn't you want to have this pillow on your couch?

The ever-popular Schumacher Hothouse Flowers in Mineral: ~$180/yard, light blue grey/beige tan/black/light blue.

Yours truly has it in her master bedroom. Still love to wake up to it.

 P. Kaufmann Clarice in Dove: ~$25/yard, grey/green/teal blue/charcoal.

I love it on my living room's couch. It looks fab with the Windsor Smith Pelagos pillows.

 Schumacher Avebury Floral Vine in Citrine: ~$180/yard, citrine/grey blue/grey brown.

I am wiping drool off my face! I can have these beauties in any room!
 And how about a Jacobean and Chinoiserie fusion fabric like the Braemore Emperor's Garden Fabric: ~$35/yard, red/pink/gold tan/teal blue/green/plum.

This would be perfect for a girl's room or any bachelorette pad.
