The Red and Green Fairies of Acorn HollowAutumn is here and it's time to get serious about decorating for a fall backyard. The following tips will help you choose the right set of decor and statuary for this beautiful, dynamic time of year:

  • Choose statues that make an impression: Once the leaves start to fall, garden statues take center stage. Instead of using small sculptures, try a majestic stone garden angel or other grand-sized sculpture meant to be admired on its own.

Bright Colored Dragon Garden Statues

Red Devil Dragon SculptureStatues of dragons often show the same shades of dun and gray as those of gargoyle garden statues. Although such stone-colored dragons can give the yard a mysterious, distinguished look, dragon sculptures can also sport bright, eye-catching colors. One such brightly colored dragon is the aptly named Red Devil Dragon Sculpture. The fine, intimidating details and shades of red make this an excellent addition to any collection of dragon statues. It can also be used to match the color of autumn foliage, especially the crimson and scarlet hues of Maple leaves.

The Dragon of Lynton Stowey is another colorful scaled beast. This beautiful dragon is painted with shades of shining metallic amethyst and silver, and is highlighted with a few faux jewels. Display this fine winged dragon on a pedestal, as an objet d'art on antique replica furniture, or use it as eye-catching desk decor.

Lysander, the Five-Headed Dragon Sculpture is one of the more menacing dragons from our collection. This one foot tall olive-colored dragon sculpture has powerful clawed hands, five fiercely fanged heads, and taloned wings. Use it as unique, autumn garden statuary or display it as part of your interior Halloween decor. Either way, this exquisite dragon sculpture will make quite the impression.

Too Early to Buy Resin Garden Statues for Halloween?

Roswell, the Alien SculptureWe are two weeks into September but Halloween is closer than you think. Although the holiday itself doesn't happen until the end of October, most people start decorating long before that fun, spooky holiday. In fact, if you start to put up Halloween decor during the first week of October, you have less than a month to buy new decorations. Given the hectic schedules of modern day life, that time frame translates to a week or less and with that in mind, it's definitely not too early to shop for Halloween decor.

This year, save time and boost your backyard decor by kicking off the Halloween shopping with a Bigfoot Statue. This signature Design Toscano decor will give your yard a unique, hair-raising look. In fact, our statue is so realistic that it might keep some kids and party guests from making it to the door of your home.

Roswell, the Alien Sculpture is another signature item that will add a unique, fun touch to your Halloween display. Welcome guests with this fantastic decor near the front door, or put it under the shade of a backyard tree to make guests wonder if visitors from far out of town are coming to the party!

Complement Fall Colors with Animal Garden Sculptures

European Red Fox StatueAlthough it still feels like summer in much of Canada and the USA, cool fall weather is just around the corner. That refreshing fall air is accompanied by football, crisp apples, and beautiful autumn foliage. Maples, Sumac, and other deciduous trees go from yellow to bright crimson red, and most gardens see some fall colors before the leaves fall from the branches. Although fall foliage acts as natural decor all on its own, the backyard looks even better when the right animal statues are used to complement the autumn palette.

The European Red Fox statue is beautiful at any time of the year but its realistic colors are at their best during the fall. The handsome shades of chestnut are a wonderful complement to a carpet of red, green, and yellow leaves, and the piercing, bright eyes of this sculpture help bring it to life.

The Wild Tom Turkey Grand Scale Animal Statue is another fine fall sculpture. This beautiful animal statue is a detailed, accurate portrayal of a male Wild Turkey and shows the same range of colors and patterns as the actual birds that roam the woods and fields of North America. Put this beautiful animal yard statue in the garden and it will fit right in with the fall foliage mosaic.

Use Resin Garden Statues to Change the Atmosphere of Your Home and Business

Strike a Pose Zen Yoga FrogEvery once in a while, the house needs a change. Leave that old decor or paint job in place long enough and it starts to look as old as it feels. This affects the atmosphere of the home, and usually ends up affecting the moods of just about anyone who walks through the front door. When the decor feels "tired", it's time to change it to improve the atmosphere of a home or place of business. Needless to say, it's especially important to change the atmosphere of a place of business because it can affect customers.

If your place could use a bit of creative color, put the Strike a Pose Zen Yoga Frog on display. This unique animal yard statue is a cheerful piece that also works well as a fun indoor statue. Another indoor statue that works well to change the atmosphere of home and place of business is the Venus of Arles Sculpture. Use this beautiful replica of the ancient Greek masterpiece to add classic elegance to any room. It also makes for fine entranceway decor in a restaurant or hotel. If it's time to switch to Gothic decor, a high quality gargoyle like Silas the Sentry and beautiful furniture like the Lord Raffles Grand Hall Lion Leg Table could do the trick.

Save on New Interior Gothic Decor

Grim Reaper and Orb of Death StatueA Gothic-themed garden fits right in with fall weather. As the leaves fall from the trees, greenmen statues become more obvious and seem to laugh in delight. Gargoyle Garden Statues also seem to take charge with stark, intimidating features and long fangs. However, Gothic statues aren't just limited to the outside of the home. There are also plenty of Gothic statues that look wonderful when displayed inside the home.

The Grim Reaper and Orb of Death Statue is a 14 inch tall, faceless dark angel that adds character to any room. Put this unique sculpture in the library, next to your favorite reading chair, or on your desk to remind you of the mysteries of the fantasy genre.

Greek Garden Statues for a Place of Business

Poseidon, God of the SeaThe ancient Greeks took the art of sculpting to new levels. Some Hellenic works of art are so realistic, it looks as if the statue might come to life and gave rise to myths of Medusa being capable of turning people to stone. The Romans improved upon Greek sculpting methodologies but the base of their knowledge came from the ancient Greek civilization. The sculptures that have survived from those eras are majestic and provide invaluable glimpses into the past. Their storied appearance also makes modern day versions of those classic sculptures excellent pieces for the garden but even more so for a place of business.

When we use decor for a business, we want it to portray a certain, appropriate character. However, perhaps most of all, we would also love if the decor could make our restaurant, hotel, or other business unforgettable. Greek statues like the grand-scale Poseidon, God of the Sea help make this happen because they are unique, spectacular decor that customers just don't see anywhere else. A statue of Poseidon or the Four Goddesses of the Seasons make them feel as if they are truly entering a special place. Complement the beauty of these statues with the stunning Spring Awakening Garden Statue for full marketing effect.

Pillars and Plinths Are Classic Garden Statuary

Classic Statuary Plinth BasesGarden statues come in many shapes and sizes. An animal yard statue might look very different from a bronze fountain or a fluted column but all of these and other sculptures for the yard fall under the category of garden statue decor. We use such sculptures in the yard and place of business because they add character, and inspire. Two of the most ancient types of garden decor are the column and the plinth. These items are still used to this day to act as bases for classic sculptures, and make a simple, classy statement when displayed all on their own.

Our Classic Statuary Plinth Bases show the same simple yet decorative and powerful appearance as Roman plinths on display in the Forum and various museums. Use them to elevate your favorite classic statues to new heights, as a place to display flower plantings, or let their beauty stand on its own.

Our Roman Doric Column Architectural Stone Stool Plinth shows the same wonderfully simple, powerful design as the authentic marble columns that date back to the days of Julius Caesar. This unique decor can be used as your personal imperial side table, to support a classic stone garden angel, or as a classy backyard decoration. 

Looking for high quality Greek garden statues and other beautiful decor for the home and place of business? Find the best statues and decor for the best prices at Design Toscano.

Write a review and send us a photo of a favorite item from our collection and you will entered into a drawing for a $200 gift certificate. This offer ends on August 31st, 2014.

What’s Your Favorite A Garden Gargoyle Statue?

Emmett the Gargoyle SculptureIf you have visited the spectacular Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, you have probably seen, and maybe taken pictures of, some of the most famous gargoyles on the planet. The strange sculptures of fanged beasts on the ramparts of this and other Gothic cathedrals were meant to intimidate all who dared enter into the sacred confines of the church. Their odd appearance has made them popular types of decor to this day even if we don't use gargoyles to scare off garden guests and any unwelcome spirits.

Modern day gargoyle figurines can be fun, scary, highly detailed, and downright cute. If you love an adorable gargoyle, then Emmett the Gargoyle Sculpture might be one of your favorites. Put this lonely little creature in the backyard so he can be friends with your garden fairies, and entertain garden guests. Babble, the Gothic Gargoyle also makes a nice companion for Emmett but keep him away from Scatheus, Guardian of the Shadows! This fantastic, fierce gargoyle is only meant for gardens that play host to dramatic, highly detailed decor. Scatheus looks best when displayed as stunning Halloween decor, or when shown with dragon statues, and classic garden statuary.

Pay nothing for regular shipping on $75 or more purchases of gargoyles, animal garden statues, and other high quality décor at Design Toscano until tomorrow, August 24th.

Find Exquisite Wall Mirrors in the Basil Street Gallery

Fleur de Lis Metal Filigreen Wall MirrorThere are two main areas of the home to display decor. One is the exterior of the home (including the backyard), and the other is inside the home. This is important to keep in mind when shopping for garden statuary decor so you don't forget to buy indoor statues, wall decor, and other decorations for the inside of the home and place of business. As far an interior decor goes, wall decor is simply essential because the walls of the home have the largest amount of easily visible surface area. In other words, since we look at the walls a lot more than the floor or ceiling, we need to pay more attention to decorating them.

Replica paintings, friezes, and other wall decor work wonders at turning bare, boring walls into displays of vibrant beauty. This is turn, helps bring a home to life and makes it a much more fun place to live. Decorative wall mirrors in particular help to add a blend of function and ornate beauty to the walls of any home or business and the best place to find them is in our Basil Street collection. Two of the newest mirrors in our collection are the Fleur de Lis Metal Filigree Wall Mirror, and the Madame Antoinette Ebony Salon Mirror. Both of these beautiful mirrors are modeled after antique works of art that grace the walls of old European estates, and add a touch of class to any home.

Shop at Basil Street for the best in elegant, high quality decor for home and business.
