Decorating with Sculpture, Statues, and Busts with Pictures

Today I taught my boys about Inuit art.  This week our topic is the animals of the North and South Poles, and we always learn about art on Tuesdays.  Inuit art is unique and simple:

And I got to thinking about how to display sculpture, statues, and busts in your home:

Sculpture and statues are more often in gardens--in exteriors:

But inside your home, sculpture and statues can make a room feel grand and unique:

 Refined--and maybe a little institutional:

Or so classic:

And so vintage:

 Sculptural busts go particularly well on bookcases, even in contemporary decorating:

And the new age feel of a full scale sculpture goes so well in modern decor:


Here is a wall sculpture:

And a crafty dollar store sculpture:

So classic!
