WILLIAM MORRIS DESIGN The colours in the design are mostly the pale green of the leaves or the creamy-white of the background. The blue and red of the flowers helps them to stand out and it draws your eye to them. The design has a symmetrical pattern and it also repeats the same shapes (inverted hearts). The shapes have a cured, free-flowing edge with sharp corners. This gives the design quite a natural feel along with the colours and objects.
