Jane Churchill has released a wonderful new collection for spring 2017 called Eden and it’s full of so many beautiful colours and patterns, we just had to share it with you. It’s a lovely mixture of traditional motifs and contemporary colourways, giving the whole collection a fresh and exciting look.

‘Curtains in Alex Blue, Ottoman in Ellwood Navy, Chair in Silvan Blue and Sofa in Palma Blue’

This room is filled to the brim with beautiful blue patterns, all perfectly working together. The strong blue of the sofa covered in Palma fabric gives a solid foundation, while the other patterns complement it nicely. The hints of gold in the Alexis blue curtains looks great in its geometric, abstract patterns, while catching the same hint of colour from the ottoman which is covered in the natural Ellwood pattern. The chair is in the Silvan fabric (don’t worry there’s a close up later), the softer blue sits nicely in the room and the small pattern offsets the larger ones, creating a smooth and sophisticated look.

The beautiful Haywood Leaf curtains in green in the photograph below give an alternative, more traditional feel to the palm tree fabric patterns we’re seeing around these days. The leaves are the result of some incredible embroidery, which gives a lovely mix of small detailing and a larger overall look. It’s a great fabric to decorate a fresh, light room.

‘Headboard in Odell Gold, Curtains in Emmett Gold and Bedspread in Ginkgo Gold’

This bedroom is beautifully designed with three patterns that work harmoniously together, while still standing out individually to create an elegant and calming space. The headboard is covered in the Odell fabric from the Eden collection, which has a great blend of a geometric pattern in an almost Tuscan style. The faded appearance takes away any harshness of the repeating pattern, giving a modern but stately feel to the overall look. The two other fabrics are embroidered ginkgo leaves on bedspread and palms on the curtains, both of which add a delicate touch to the room and play off each other’s colour palettes wonderfully.

The reed scheme below really shows off the playful nature of each of the fabrics, showing how stripes, zigzags and patterns can work simultaneously together. The Marbury weave used on the sofa matches sweet raspberry tones against a linen background, giving the fabric a vibrant pattern that isn’t tough to look at if you’re feeling a little bleary eyed, unlike some other zigzag patterns. You get a quick peep of the lovely Hopewell Strip in the footstool, which has a great textural feel of velvet stripes on linen; a great way to dress up a tired looking piece of furniture.

The sweet nature of the Silvan fabric used as roman blinds below seems to have chameleon-like qualities, making it equally as suitable for a sophisticated, traditional scheme as well as a sweet contemporary one. I can see this fabric working in bathrooms, children’s room and kitchens along with nooks and crannies all over the house.

Traditional floral curtains with a very modern sofa fabric may not be something you think would especially work well together, however in this brightly coloured room it does. The multi-coloured diamond pattern of the Alexis fabric has a fresh energy and is nicely played off against the solid brights of the cushions and ottoman. The painterly style of the Grace curtains contrasts against the bolder nature of the other fabrics and gives the whole look an alternative finish.

‘Curtains in Lola Flower Blue, Roman Blinds in Eden Blue and Chair in Brock Blue’

The magnolia flower is one of my favourites, and the Jane Churchill has perfectly captured their beauty with this elegantly designed and delicately embroidered pattern. The magnolia’s lie behind the Brock stripe which is softened by its brushed cotton texture. The whole look has a peaceful atmosphere to it.

The contemporary style of the Hailey pattern gives an updated look to a classic style of chair, and the subtle stone colour allows you to play around with a bolder patterned or coloured cushion.

The Eden fabric is a beautiful ombre toile, which brings a contemporary edge to the classic pattern. The red-y pink hues in this colourway also gives the style a playful edge, and the fabric’s versatility is shown off in both upholstery and curtain use.

‘Roman Blind in Yasmin Aqua’

Positioned in a rustically styled bathroom, the Yasmin fabric adds a hints of femininity to the minimal setting. The icy blue background and with the blush pinks in the floral detail gives a beautiful effect.

‘Cushions from top to bottom Rydall Red, Calla Red, Marely Red and Silvan Red’

These cushions show off the fun smaller prints in the Eden collection, each a great fabric for that’ll add accents of colour, patterns and style amongst larger patterns or solid colours. The red piping borders the patterns, giving a fresh and fun look.

The final photograph offers up the luxurious combination of orangey gold and hot pinks. The button-backed chair is gloriously covered in the pink Palma fabric with a cushion in the umber colourway, the two colours give a punchy, fruity look. Next to the block colours is the Haywood Leaf with gold embroidery which has a beautiful understated glamour to it. The combination of the pink and the gold leaf gives a sharp contemporary look.

The Eden collection is full of smart and glamorous fabrics, which offer up both romance and playfulness in one collection. Fun, vibrant colours are mixed with traditional styles, giving the whole collection a unique and interesting feel.
