LRV (Light Reflectance Value) – 10. The West Sussex estate on which Standen House sits was previously three farms, bought in 1890 by James Beale, a prosperous solicitor. He commissioned architect Philip Webb and the designer William Morris to build and furnish it. A fabulous example of an Arts & Crafts House, Standen is adorned in Morris??? distinctive style: wallpaper and fabric patterns, carpets and paint colours. This deep green can be seen on the panelling of the Dining Room, a backdrop to the Beale family???s collection of blue and white porcelain.
