When you’re renovating a home or starting a new build, decorative elements like paintings or a luxurious light fixture often put the finishing touch on the room. The same can be said when it comes to your outdoor living spaces. Deciding on the plants and layout is only half the fun when designing your garden! Selecting decorative elements to place among your landscape is a great way to add year-round contrast and color to the panorama, and it displays the harmonious relationship that can exist between organic and man-made elements.
Here are some design elements to keep in mind during your search for a garden sculpture that can take your green space to the next level:
Here are a few examples of how sculptures and other decorative pieces can add interest and put the finishing touch on a garden room.
The sphere shape of this armillary attractively juxtaposes the square-edged shapes surrounding it.
The statue and swing in this garden provide it with a sense of whimsy. The sunlight hitting the statue gives the space dimension.
The importance of color can be seen in this garden as the statue’s white-washed outline is highlighted by a wall of purple Catmint in the background.
This bench art and reflective globe are set in a clearing along a path as a surprise respite for anyone passing by. We particularly like how these elements bring a touch of both traditional and modern design elements to the space.
