Stately, abstract and a bit surprising, we think the bust is a fantastic accessory for the modernists to the new traditionalists. These figures are more than just art, they are creative and artful storage solutions.
Now more than ever, with flash-sale sites like One Kings Lane and curated thrift retailers like Chairish, it shouldn’t be too tough to get your hands on the bust that suits your space, and if you need more inspiration, check out the bust love on my Pinterest board. Happy hunting.
A tall and narrow bust makes a fantastic hat rack as well. This particular bust recalls the ’20s, but any vintage, carved wooden piece like this one will add fantastic texture and help your hats maintain their shape when it’s not derby season.
Jenny’s idea to have the demure statue “disappear” into the backdrop of the vanity is brilliant, and you can do the same by painting a classic Diana statuette the same color as the walls or surrounding area. It took me a minute to source an inexpensive solution, and of all places, I found it on SkyMall.
