Time Out says

Marble Hill House is a Palladian-style eighteenth-century villa built for Henrietta Howard, Countess of Suffolk and mistress of King George II. Marble Hill House is set in 66 acres of picturesque parkland by the Thames and was collaboratively designed by a team that included Alexander Pope. The elaborate chinoiserie wallpaper in the dining parlour was recently recreated in the style of the handmade paper first brought to the house by the Countess in the 1750s. To tie in with the display, oriental lacquer furniture and chinaware has been added to the existing collections of Georgian paintings.
