Color Palettes: Lindsay Phillip Butterfield Textiles

Lindsay Phillip Butterfield (1869-1848) was a British pattern designer who worked in the Arts & Crafts style. An avid gardener, he created botanical designs for textiles and wallpaper. In his palettes, he used muted and harmonious color with a mix of subtle and dramatic shifts of value.

Both offerings are lovely - peaceful and restful. Thanks for sharing them: when first I saw them, thought they were patterns for quilting!! They'd look good there too!
