Busting Out All Over!

I am loving all the busts in home decor that seem to be everywhere these days.

Statuary has always been a huge part of classical design and it is plentiful in old markets such as Europe.  However, in smaller and newer markets, such as Prince Edward Island, it is basically impossible to find.  Yes, we have garden statuary, produced right here on the Island, and it is all lovely, all new and mass produced..........but no 'busts'.

Nevertheless,  as you will see in the following, the statuary used here is new and old, in every kind of decorating style - classic, traditional, coastal, shabby - it is a suitable accessory in any room and I think the graphic design of the white busts against any color is absolutely part of it's charm.
