Decorator s observations

Decorator’s Observations

  • Painting interior walls and ceiling

  • A lighter color would give a more transcendent look and feeling of a modern church.

  • Would give us the best value for our money. 

We had not considered this, but we should give this some thought as it impacts the whole picture and was the first thing the professional recommended.  If we did the painting, we could choose not to change the seating for instance. In short, there is more than one way to look at things.

Example of church with light interior


Decorator s observations1

Decorator’s Observations

  • Seating

  • According to the decorator, current seating is not a major problem.

  • Keep theater seating in the front.

  • Move the rows farther apart to give a feeling of more space and make it easier to move through the seating.

  • Lighting

  • Replace light fixtures with more something more contemporary.

Decorator s observations2

Decorator’s Observations

  • Podium + Auditorium Front

  • Replace fabric covering the speakers with new fabric or with metal or wooden frets.

  • Remove the lattice panels on either side of the podium.

  • Reduce podium size horizontallyClassical molding could be included in the front with the painting.

  • Color

  • Current appearance is very brown.

  • Color can be brought into the church with pulpit fabric, carpeting, and paint. According to decorator seating could be reupholstered, but current gold color is okay.


Decorator s observations3

Decorator’s Observations

  • It is better to create a a total, coordinated package, than a patchwork of “this idea and that idea”.

  • Consider the elements of our church in light of visitors as well as from our own preferences.

  • Higher thoughts progress with the years; change isn’t bad.
