House Decoration!

Most egyptian houses were decorated with frescoes. ( These were ancient paintings done on wet plaster, like the one above) They used frescoes to enrich their personal space, also to detail important events from their lives or the lives of pharohs who they served. That would be cool! Every wall in your house you would see yourself and remember important or fun events from the past! They also had ornate tiles, many with symbols of nature, like lotus blossum in a repeated pattern. (A whole building about me!)
