How to use decorative in a sentence?

  1. David Berkowitz Chicago:

    The art deprived of closeness to the world is, in fact, pure, flat, unmanageable, decorative. Totally extraneous because she herself destroyed outer. Empty and indifferent, deprived of destiny, it solves only technical issues.

  2. Lyn Wadley:

    It may have been used as decorative paint. It could have been used to decorate animals hides. We have not found the evidence for the way that they used it, we just know that they used it.

  3. Manuel Emch:

    Interest in metiers d'art has grown strongly over recent years in line with interest in all things crafted and more individualistic, it's a natural evolution for the watch too. Since we have all these devices giving us the time, the watch is becoming more of a decorative piece. Besides, movement development is so time and investment-intensive that to make the mechanically unique is rarely possible in the way it is with metiers d'art.

  4. Perry Brass:

    Take up something that you know will never bring you any returns except pleasure—in other words, allow yourself to live the way brilliant eighteenth century courtesans lived. Don’t be afraid of having a decorative life, even if all the decorations come from you.

  5. Ashley Poust:

    Here is an animal that has all kinds of signals of being a juvenile, outside its bones, inside its bones, in its joints, and it has long, isolated plumes extending from its already-very-long tail. This is quite different from living birds and tells us that these decorative feathers preceded adulthood in dinosaurs. Of course, perhaps they're using these feathers in a very different way from living birds, too.
