About this Event

Villa Alba is of significance for the outstanding late Victorian painted decoration throughout its interior. Its decorative scheme is significant as a fine example of the work of the leading 19th Century interior decorators, the Paterson Brothers. It is one of their first interiors to depart totally from the use of pre-prepared wallpapers of repetitive designs and it is a rare and comprehensive extant example of their domestic work.
