So, you are thinking of decorating your home with black and white American Flag wallpaper. There is an interesting side to this, however. Black and white images have been used on United States postage stamps since before the Revolution. The printer that produced these first stamps printed in black against a white background. From that point on, they printed both black and white, and that remained the standard for almost one hundred years.
Now, if you are not a history buff, or if you are not interested in reenacting history, there is another use for these old postage stamps. As an art form, they are still used today, more often in children's room wall murals than in the grand scheme of house wall decoration. For kids, of course, they are fun and colorful. For adults, they can serve as a nostalgic marker of our nation's evolution from a Continental Army to a democratic republic.
When choosing a wall mural for your child, look for something with a patriotic theme. Whether it is an image of the American flag, or a modern American symbol of freedom and liberty, or a depiction of the Red House or the White House, or even a scene from the New York skyline, whatever the subject, black and white wallpaper will tie it together. These simple colors can be used on any wall in the home, but particularly in a child's room.
There are several things you should know before deciding to use black and white wallpaper in your home. One is that this is not a very popular choice with the vast majority of Americans, especially those who are very patriotic. Another is that it does take some special paper to print these black and white designs. Finally, it may not be as easy as you think to find these old postage stamps in good condition.
If you have found a good wall mural for your home, you can purchase flag wallpaper kits. These are easy to find at many stores, especially hardware stores or office supply stores. With these kits, you can mix and match different wall murals to create your own personal American symbol. You can choose old postage stamps, or purchase new postage stamps to put on your wall in black and white. It is a great way to add that personal touch to your home.
If you cannot find any flag wallpaper kits at your local hardware store, you can also purchase this design on the Internet. There are a number of websites that sell this type of wallpaper. Before purchasing any type of black and white wallpaper, make sure you research its availability in your area. Many towns will post these decorations a few months old, so it is best to order at least a few months prior to the actual event. Follow the steps above to create your own American symbol on your walls.
