And when it comes to interior design, color palettes and ways to decor your new apartment, dorm room or refinished kitchen you’ll need lots of time to create a vision. Today, we’re using blueberries and cranberries as our inspiration. The shapes, the shades and the combination can all make for lots of fun, food inspired decor ideas.

A blueberry shade is so full of life when used as accents that it’s hard to remember what the color can do on it’s own. Coating a room in this almost navy tone is a quick way to create drama and a bold contemporary style.

Bits and pieces cranberries can also be a great way to bring life and vibrancy to a lighter, brighter room. In a bowl or in a vase, cranberries can act both color accents and textured pieces.
