    Pattern vs. plane
    The wallpaper, bed sheets and curtains around Briony are all very busy. They are extremely patterned, with large images and bold colours. This is a large contrast with Briony's dress which is a pale colour and has no pattern or images on it.Here, she is finishing off her play that she has been writing. The patterns around her represent her imagination as they are intricate and detailed, large and exciting. This highlights the contrast of the pattern to Briony's appearance which is very plane and simple. This pairs up well with the rest of the scene, as Briony is very mechanical, controlled and calculated.
