Interior Design

Italian Baroque interior design probably won’t make its way into your home but it’s interesting to know how the church played a role in advancing interior design. This room in the palace on Isola Bella is Italian Baroque interior design and the style emerged as popes wanted to build new palaces and churches. Isola Bella is an island and makes it a remote place, just like these 50 gorgeous castles.

Fleur de Lis

The Fleur de Lis has become a religious symbol of sorts since members of the French clergy adopted its use. The Fleur de Lis has appeared as a religious symbol since the Middle ages because it could represent the trinity as well as purity and chastity as a lily. Would you consider removable wallpaper at home?

Stained Glass Window

You might be able to still find some old houses with stained glass windows and they used to be a little more common decades ago. It’s easy to see the beauty in stained glass windows, which Christians popularized around the 4th century.

Stained glass windows are also found in synagogues, prairie style homes and Frank Lloyd Wright homes.
