Midnight Garden by Beacon Hill
With storied origins and a unique point of view, Beacon Hill’s newest collection, Midnight Garden, transports the imagination. These fabrics draw their inspiration from romantic naturalism, a belief embraced by nineteenth century artists and aesthetes, that nature itself is a work of art. The patterns in the collection are based on a selection of historic documents that celebrate the opulence and beauty of natural elements and give them a fantastical twist. Filled with majestic mystery, lush and inviting gardens emerge from fine linen in this line of exclusive prints.
Midnight Garden features four star patterns, all of which are printed in Austria on French linen: Moon Blossom, Hidden Temple, Enchanted Vine & Lioness.
Moon Blossom showcases fantastical foliage ornamenting hills and valleys. The lush detailing of each leaf and flower gives the pattern a hand-painted feel. The late nineteenth century document that inspired Moon Blossom was a pre-arts and crafts panel printed on paper that came from the French textile collector Hamot’s private collection. The artwork is
believed to have been created by an artist in Hamot’s studio who came from the prestigious guild of William Morris. Colorways include: Midnight, Orchid.
Hidden Temple recalls a traditional chinoiserie pattern, but Beacon Hill’s modernized version has oversized trees and flowers obscuring pagodas and bridges. Inspiration for Hidden Temple came from a late nineteenth century French design, which was originally intended for textile or wallpaper use. Colorways include: Emerald, Indigo.
Enchanted Vine displays swooping foliage with wild leaves intertwining. Enchanted Vine’s original source is an early twentieth century screen-printed fabric. The structure of the vine suggests a Jacobean layout whereas the fruit and floral elements reveal a batik influence. Colorways include: Emerald, Indigo, Mint, Navy, Orchid
Lioness watches as the predator stalks her prey, an exotic bird, through a lush tropical jungle. The Beacon Hill design team was immediately drawn to the delicate rendering and elegant animal motif of this artwork. Colorways include: Emerald, Indigo, Teak, Walnut.
