Modern Lines in Old Times: Churches

During some recent travels around Germany I again noticed how classic some designs really are. I thought I'd do a mini-series on some of the places I've seen and maybe you'll also notice the graphic lines I've been appreciating.

Today is Reformation Day, so I thought it would be appropriate to wrap up this little mini-series with some graphic design patterns I saw in a nearby Gothic church. It was renovated in the 1920's and I think some of the design trends of that time are subtly evident. The grid pattern reminds me of patchwork (shocker, right?) and makes for a gorgeous ceiling, no? The gray design is found on the columns around the sanctuary. I'm pretty much in love with how these columns look! They remind me so much of the current chevron craze, don't you agree?

This marks the end of my mini-series, but I'm thinking I'll keep adding to it over time just because it's fun for me to watch out for these things!

Love them - I love finding churches painted with repeating patterns, and windows with repeating patterns.

I really enjoyed this series! I will definitely have an eye out for this sort of thing in my future travels!
