Three Farm Green – No 306
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.
