A STORY OF TIMELESS ELEGANCE
For a long time, wallpaper designs have made it possible to add personality and style to the walls of our homes. Classic wallpaper designs are known for their timeless elegance and their ability to create a feeling of warmth and comfort in people. But where did this practice come from?
Wallpaper has its origins in the East, reaching Europe around the 15th century and becoming popular in the 17th century. Paper was invented in China in the 2nd century BC. and it was widely used in wall decoration with hand-painted designs.
Its production remained in China and spread to other parts of the world, including the Islamic world and Europe. In the 15th century, woven wallpapers became a popular form of wall decoration in Europe. During the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, wallpaper was used to cover the walls of castles and palaces, often featuring historical or religious scenes.
In the 18th century, wallpaper began to be mass-produced in Europe thanks to the industrial revolution that allowed production costs to be reduced by mechanization. In this way, decorating with paper became a popular and accessible practice for the middle class. Early mass productions of wallpaper used simple, repetitive designs, but as technology advanced, more complex, and detailed designs could be created.
Classic wallpaper designs often feature patterns of flowers, leaves, and branches, intertwining in soft, sophisticated hues. The most common colors are pastels and neutrals, although you can also find designs in brighter colors, such as red and gold.
Art Nouveau and Art Deco designs were very popular in the first half of the 20th century and after World War II, wallpaper became an inexpensive and versatile solution for decoration.
Although there is a wide variety of options to choose from, starting from basic designs to elaborate designs and even artistic designs with landscapes or well-known places, in some cases simple and subtle designs allow you to be more daring with the decoration, for this reason, there will always be people who prefer papers of a single color, usually in pastel tones.
For example, in this case we use, Herringbone from Phillip Jeffries wallpaper which gives a uniform tone to the room
maintaining a sober and elegant atmosphere that contrasts perfectly with the wooden floor and furniture.
This way, it is possible to appreciate the value and subtlety that a simple and elegant role gives to your spaces.
