William Morris: Tiles by Digital Collections at the University of Maryland, via Flickr
WILLIAM MORRIS DESIGN The colours are all quite neutral and plain which makes the design seem a bit boring and old-fashioned. The only colour which does stand out is the pink. A lot of the elements of the design are repeated, such as the pattern and shapes. He uses lines cleverly on the flowers to give them depth and a 3-D feel. Most of the other lines and shapes are very curvy.
