Reimagined Wallpaper: New Way To Style Home Walls:- Wallpaper has evolved dramatically over the years. The Renaissance in Europe marks the beginning of decorative wall coverings. The social elite would hand large tapestries to add interest and insulation to the interior of the room.
It was soon after that these large tapestries turned into rolls of paper applied to the walls. It has adorned homes since colonial times. In recent years, wallpaper comes in a variety of colors and patterns that can fit any style and space of the home.
It has not only evolved in style, but also in usage. Wallpaper is not only just for walls anymore. Many creative homeowners use wallpaper on shelves, doors, cabinets, stairs, lamps and any other item or place that needs a bit of flair.
