Interior designer Scot Meacham Wood has come up with a fabric design named for Sebastian Flyte from Brideshead Revisited. This is “Sebastian Tattersall.” Wood describes his inspiration on his website Tartanscot:
I wanted a name that implied all the glories of an English summer . . . the dusty blue of an early morning – the lush greens of fresh grass and ancient trees and the soft, heathered hues of a riotous English garden in the full blossom of high summer . . .
Several example of “Sebastian Tattersall” on a sky blue background are displayed on the website. Wood is working on a fabric design to be named for Charles Ryder. Can we hope for one on a white background to be named “Anthony Blanche”? Or why limit ourselves to Brideshead? A McTavish plaid rebranded as “Trimmer tartan” should shift a few yards of fabric.
