Moonlight Garden is Beacon Hill’s latest foray into an enchanting and magical world.

These timeless prints will add a sense of mystery to any style of decor. Read more and become inspired to transform your home with the Midnight Garden Collection!
Leading the collection is Moon Blossom, a stylized floral print that originated from a French Document. The original painting is believed to have been created by a member of the William Morris guild, which spearheaded the Arts & Crafts movement in England. The document features sparrows and pheasants singing to one another from tulip and flowering tree branches. The floating floral islands were expanded and the birds removed to create an all-over floral that is both modern and timeless. This knockout textile will make a bold statement in a refined and artistic home.
A 19th Century hand-painted gouache document, Hidden Temple is a beautiful Chinoiserie fabric depicting a tropical forest surrounding Asian pagodas and bridges. Although the design itself has not been altered, Hidden Temple has been given a fresh interpretation with moody cobalt blue and lime green color. This document is a testament to the enduring appeal of a classic Chinoiserie.
Inspired by a miniature hand painted hunting scene from the late 19th century, this French artwork has been transformed into a brilliant print that emphasizes the details of the background and the foliage. Beacon Hill’s design team replaced the indigenous hunters with more vegetation and a few birds, rendering this colonial design applicable for contemporary decor and highlighting the lion as the central figure.
This Jacobean style floral print has been expanded from its more compact predecessor, an early 20th Century English striped screen print. The Beacon Hill designers maintained the integrity of the original flowers but enlarged them and spaced them out along twisting branches to create a winding vine pattern. Available in enticing turquoise, navy, and coral colors, Enchanted Vine is sure to enhance your decor.
