Derek Patmore

Here are some images from Derek Patmore's Colour Schemes for the Modern Home, published by Studio, New York 1933.
It does strike me as odd how a comparison of the two books is similar to the comparison of the two fabrics. Patmore is to Fauve, as Ionides is to Arbre de Matisse.

Is this your copy? Looks divine!

PoC, Not exactly - I just bought one this afternoon. While I was looking for a copy I found these images.

I have all of Patmore's design books and find them utterly fascinating period documents whose advice manages to remain utterly up-to-date and highly sensible. He writes well also. Bravo for your post. I do wish some smart publishing house would reprint his works.

Mitchell - They are wonderful and very entertaining.
