Decorating a home is an exercise in balance. You need home décor that fits together thematically without being boring. Statuary
can be just what you need to balance out your home decorating scheme.
One way to avoid monotony in a design is to include the occasional off beat element where it is not expected. Miniature statuary can be placed on bookcases
and shelves to relieve the rather plain appearance of a shelf full of books. The statue opens up space and provides a different and unexpected shape for the eye to savor.
Smaller examples of statuary are often placed on accent tables
to call attention to the artwork. By playing with the table’s position, as well as the ambient lighting, new and subtle aspects of the statue can be revealed. Using statuary
to create fleeting effects gives a room that tiny spark of the unexpected.
The principle is the same with garden statuary
. These larger pieces are placed with plantings and topiary elements for maximum impact. Add a subtle touch of flair to a zen garden with an Asian inspired statuary
. A common tactic is to have statuary in the garden that is visible only from certain angles. As a guest moves through the garden, the statues are revealed, almost like a secret the garden designer is sharing with the viewer. This effect can be powerfully intimate if done well.
