Egyptian Home Decor

Many people enjoy good Egyptian home décor but finding the perfect pieces can hard. Life in Ancient Egypt was not homogeneous. There were many different lifestyles, therefore, even planning the background for a room is important. The most common is a sandstone or bamboo wall treatment. Understanding the Egyptian deities will help when planning the message you want your décor to deliver. For example, you might want to select a deity that presides over a particular life aspect. Another consideration is planning how each piece will be used. Many Egyptian décor pieces are fragile and should be used in a protected environment, while others are not and can be used for outdoor purposes. Some vases are designed only for decoration while others can be used as planters. Each selection will give a unique feel to your home.
Determine the Right Size and Weight
Measure the areas where you want to place your items. Keep in mind the different weight limits and minimums as well. Care is needed when selecting outdoor pieces. Some traditional pieces might be too graphic for modern communities. Size is an appropriate consideration as proper support will be needed, especially for larger pieces. For example, you wouldn’t want to place a heavy stone vase, weighted with potting soil and a plant on a fragile wall shelf.
Define the Style of Your Area
Defining style might require some advance research. You might want to decide whether you will focus on a selected deity or if you will generalize. If you select an Isis themed area, then including a marvelous piece with Osiris would fit, as he is her husband. Seth and Isis, on the other hand, would not mix well as they are opposed in ideology. Extra planning will help coordinate the room for you, and could even impress visiting students of Egyptology who view it. This is why when you select pieces, you shouldn’t merely look at establishing themes, but to also seek the message of each piece.
Egyptian home décor can be especially satisfying to collectors or to avant-garde idealists who want to make a statement. The Egyptian pantheon and stylized artwork encompassed the broad spectrum of life in Ancient Egypt, giving the modern collector ample opportunities for self-expression, or to make a statement about personal lifestyle.
