Colour is a theme which runs through MoDA's whole collections, from advice books to fabric swatches, and from hand-drawn designs to wallpaper samples. Studying colour through the collection is a journey through changing tastes and styles. Colour choice in the home is a question of cultural and social significance, reflecting aspiration, status and class in ways that are often subtle and not fully articulated. Colour choice also reflects the technological advances which broadened the range of shades and hues available to consumers at different points.
