In general, garden decor is meant for warm times of the year. Resin garden statues can be damaged by freezing cold weather, especially when subjected to cold weather for extended periods of time, but even if we did want to leave our favorite angel sculpture outside during the winter months, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. At least not when the backyard lies under a blanket of snow, the ground is frozen, and biting, frigid wind blows through the bare branches.
Fortunately, depending on where you live, winter only lasts three to six months of the year, and we can still use some of those garden statues inside the home. Although we might want to leave most of the high quality garden gnomes in storage, some of our garden fairies and animal garden statues can act as a suitable addition to the inside of a winter home. In general, small garden statuary works best as interior decor, but there are a few other types of garden decor that work for every season no matter how big or small they may be.
Urns and vases fall into this category. It doesn’t mean that we would want to leave such “all-season decor” outside during the winter months (not a good idea for any decor made from resin), just that there are urns and vases suited for every season. During the hot days of summer, decorative urns play an easy role in gardens of every size. Their gestalt can help them fit in with everything from classic statuary to Gothic decor and backyards decorated with animals garden sculptures, and they can also be placed in just about any corner of the garden. In general, items like the Versailles Cherub Urn & Plinth just act as basic, classy decor no matter where or how they are displayed.
Another good thing about urns and vases is that they can also be used for displaying cuttings of flowers and other plants, and some can be leveraged as planters. This makes them suitable for the backyard during the summer months, as decor on the porch or sun room during spring and fall, and as a means of lending cheer to a winter home with brightly colored floral arrangements. An example of a beautiful, decorative urn that can be used outside during the summer and then shown inside when the weather turns cold is the Larkin Arts and Crafts Architectural Garden Urn & Plinth Set. This classy urn looks best when placed on the plinth, but still makes a regal statement when displayed without it.
We could also use certain urns for the garden, and then make use of other, more elegant urns as interior decor. While we might limit a large Versailles Cherub Urn and the Versailles Floral Oviform Urn: Set of Two to the outdoors, exquisite vases like the Peacock Centerpiece Sculptural Vase act as elegant interior decor during the cold months. This and other beautifully detailed vases make for easy, classy accents, work well with Victorian-themed decor and antiques, and lend a touch of beautiful elegance to any room.
The same can be said for the impressive Chatsworth Manor Sculptural Neoclassical Pedestal Urn. Although this detailed work of functional art works well for every season, in a warm spring or summer backyard, it can act as fine decor on its own or for showcasing favorite floral arrangements. During autumn, until it gets too cold, it can still be used in the backyard before eventually being placed in an enclosed porch, and when the snow starts to fall, it can host greenery in the living room.
