Wallpaper Wonders

N A M A S T E 

Welcome back my interior decor loves!  Today I am going to be talking about the history and benefits of wallpaper!  Wallpaper is a beautiful way to help bring personality to any space and has much evolved since papers first presentation as the papyrus in the Ancient Egyptian Culture emerged in 4000BC. The word paper was derived from the word papyrus, which means "the paper plant, or paper created from it."  Here are a few images of some Egyptian Papyrus.   

4,500 year old papyri discovered on the Red Sea coast include details of the arrangements for getting bread and beer to the ancient port workers.

This image via the Daily Mail dates back almost 4500 years ago from the Fourth Dynasty.
