Early Victorian homes, including Gothic and Italianate
Gothic house built 1862
Homes of this period were often seen as being the first
civilized influence in their area when they were built.
A fineness of design was common in these homes, often
exemplified by very delicate woodwork.
Wallpapers in this period were generally printed in an
overall repeating design, with a decorative
element framed in a basic diamond-shaped motif. This repeating
motif could be formed of either a hard edged geometric
pattern, or a softer floral version..
