24 Amazing Chinese Wallpaper Ideas For Your Wall Decor
When Chinese people first began to learn to paint, the art of painting pictures on the walls of their home was considered a very sacred art. Wall paper was the main source of decoration and the family who lived next to someone who didn't have any knowledge of this art would not be able to tell if the paints on their wall had been made by real artists or if it was someone's impostor. There is no way to know who created the first wall paper and some historians believe that the very first Chinese wall paper designs were created using animal skin. This theory has not been completely substantiated but many people believe it was an actual method for creating wall paper before the progress of printing.
Chinese wallpapers originally were provided in large rolls of 25 or more pieces, each of a different design, that could then be hung in the same way to create a full, intricate mural decoration on the wall. The method of creating these wonderful works of art using Chinese wallpaper designs is different than what we use today in that it involves creating the picture on one piece of paper while leaving a border around it, usually done using a thin fabric that was used to create a decorative border. Each individual sheet would normally be decorated using a brush to add the different colors to the paper as well as small dots to make it look like it had designs or patterns. These different colored papers would then be bound together with a silk ribbon to keep it from unraveling. In order to create a European style Chinese wallpaper a similar method of binding was used but instead of using a ribbon they used gold strings.
One of the most popular areas in the world where you can find people that will create European style Chinese wallpaper pictures for your home is at the art gallery in your area. If you haven't found one yet, don't worry, most of them are already owned by other artists who are happy to allow you to purchase their paintings or prints so that you can decorate your home with their amazing Chinese wallpaper designs. After all, isn't it time to give the exotic charm of Chinese wallpaper designs to your entire home?
