A major element of the design is the series of thirteen murals in the Pre-Raphaelite style designed and executed by Frederic Clay Bartlett. That style, like the Arts & Crafts movement, looked back to the medieval era as an ideal period of stability and faith, and used natural themes extensively. Objects and figures are incised with heavy outlines and filled in with flat colors and there is little impression of depth. This respect for the flatness of the wall surface allows for a successful integration with the architecture of the church.
