Scope and Content Detail of a door in the principal drawing room, Mortonhall House, Frogston Road East, Liberton, Edinburgh Mortonhall House, designed and built for the Trotters of Mortonhall in 1769 by the architect, John Baxter Junior, stands, surrounded by gardens and extensive parkland, on the north side of Frogston Road East. It has recently been converted into 13 flats. The panels of this drawing-room door were painted with oval miniature pastoral scenes, and decorated in gilt by the decorator and house-painter, Thomas Bonnar, c.1840. The house-painter, Thomas Bonnar (1810-73), worked with D R Hay & Co, an Edinburgh firm of interior decorators who, by their use of scientific colour schemes and ornamental painting, had made Edinburgh a centre of innovative interior design.
