Decorate with Spritual Elements

Displaying spiritual elements in the house is very common in many parts of the world. Be it Lord Ganesha, Budhha, Jesus Christ or any other sacred element, all become pieces of art and adorn the console top, the side/centre table or the wall. They also add a sense of belonging as well as some component of interest to our spaces. A blend of ethnic and spiritual items can be displayed in a room very artistically, without compromising on the contemporary look of the space.

So scout the flea markets, antique/furniture shops or your mother's house for that carved Altar table, decorative cross, or may be some silver idols. Who says that you can display them only during festivities? These sculptures and artefacts will showcase some historical perspective as well as work as conversation pieces throughout the year.
