Busts make any room look instantly elegant and rich. These representationalist sculptures can be mixed with modern decor for an eclectic look or placed amongst distressed surroundings for a European sophistication. Busts never go out of style. Although, it's best to use the sculptures in minimalist, modern or eclectic interiors. Busts can be a bit stodgy when mixed with traditional furniture and floral textiles.
There are still a few master designers who consistantly rely on traditional busts to enhance their interiors. Gary Spain mixes busts with bright colors and geometric patterns. Skona Hem adds these scultpures to pale enchanting palettes in unexpected places, while Paul Costello will add them as a splash of cosmopolitan seriousness in an amusing room.
