Decorating in a living room in a Christian theme is much the same as other methods of decorating in regards to the furniture, window treatments, flooring, and colors. What sets it apart from other decorating styles is the wall art and tabletop décor. Christian living room decorating can be incorporated into almost any other style and theme, and it can include items such as wall crosses, plaques, tabletop Christian art, and more. Try the following suggestions for Christian living room decorating, and add tokens of faith to ordinary décor. When decorated with care the results are nothing short of divine.
Create a Living Room Focal Point with a Wall Cross
Wall crosses are available in many different styles and materials from wrought iron to olive wood. Some include the corpus and complete the crucifix, and others are plain and unadorned. In any case, a cross can become the focal point of a living room when decorating in a Christian theme. Center it on a bare living room wall, and surround it with two metal wall sculptures such as flowering vines or other eye-catching secondary works of art. A pair of candle sconces are also an excellent choice when highlighting a cross to create a focal point on a living room wall.
Display Favorite Bible Verses on Living Room Wall Plaques
When looking for creative ways of decorating a living room in a Christian theme, consider displaying favorite bible verses on decorative plaques. Buy ready-made plaques online, or try your hand at decoupage. Buy Christian magazines with graphics for this project or other sources with permanent ink. Do not try using computer printed verses since the ink will smear. Otherwise, visit a Christian store, and look for art-quality paper items such as postcards that can be coated with decoupage and transformed in decorative plaques for decorating the living room.
Decorate the Living Room with Tabletop Art
Decorating a living room in a Christian theme can include Christian tabletop art. Consider a statue of an angel or other religious figures of choice. Statues and sculptures do not have to cost a small fortune to look beautiful. Cast resin is affordable, and works of art made of this type of material are generally very sturdy. Shop online for tabletop Christian art, and begin decorating horizontal living room surfaces instead of just walls.
Display a Collection of Lighted Crystal Trinkets
Those decorating a living room in a Christian theme should also consider beautiful crystal trinkets. Display a collection of crystal trinkets that are illuminated by natural light, a curio cabinet, or another source. The facets will shine brilliantly and add further beauty to already striking Christian trinkets with a crystal theme. The options are as vast as the heavens when decorating in a Christian theme.
