Busting Up

I've noticed a trend on buying trips, there always seems to be a unique theme of antiques; one trip was sofas, another bookcases, etc. This trip, I've come across an abundance of busts and sculptures. After seeing all the unique displays, and appreciating the wide variety of ways they are show-cased, I see how under-appreciated these pieces are in the home. Incorporating busts and sculpture into decorating, will refreshen your space and update your current displays.
