When block print was finding its way into the decor world, it was a slow and gradual process. It began with bed linens and cushion covers. Lovely organic colours of indigo, mustard yellow, emerald greens and rust browns were used in abundance to imprint with intricate layers of floral designs. These elaborate designs were a common sight in the bedrooms of tropical countries and were widely used to keep the environ cool, refreshing and soothing to the eye.
It took a long time to allow block print to coat our walls and yet it was the most sensible next step. When the West made wallpapers a trend, Asian countries were already adorning their walls with these intricate murals and block prints to add aesthetic value to their otherwise regular homes. The Mughals added elaborate murals to their walls and ceilings while the Rajasthani folk painted walls with natural dye prints and adorned them with mirrors and beads.
These kind of walls were a quintessential royal requirement and more elaborate the design, more wealthy the kings.
