You know that fruit is good for your diet, but it is also good for your interior design work, too. Fruit, in its many and varied forms, can make for coloful splashes in the home. Not only can the addition of a zesty lime or a bright banana create a new tone in a room’s design, the different shapes of the fruit chosen make for miniature sculptures. Don’t hide your fruit away in a kitchen closet or a pantry. Display it as an edible part of the room’s décor.
Fruit Bowl Displays.
A simple wooden bowl is the ideal way of putting a display together of your family’s weekly fruit intake.
Set out your dining table for a formal meal and use a fruit bowl for the center piece, as a change from flowers.
Fruit has big impact if used in a predominantly white room, so use splashes of one colored fruit, like lemons, and coordinate the look with a floral display.
Set of some russet apples in a red bowl to make the maximum crimson impact.
For a rustic look, with some Old World charm, use vegetables like turnips and egg plant with your fruit to get alternative tones from the brighter colors of citrus.
A mixture of pears, oranges, lemons and limes makes for a hot look that can be supported by your choice of artwork.
Separate your fruit into glass containers to create blocks of color that can be shifted around to make new displays with ease.
Baskets make for a great alternative to conventional fruit bowls to display your produce in.
Simple wooden blocks look great with stacked citrus fruit placed on top of them.
Oversized fruit can make the perfect addition that will add interest to any unused kitchen cabinets.
Use novelty items, like fruit inspired notepads, to add to a fruit-inspired interior design.
Wreaths And Garlands.
For a center piece in a living room, opt for a fruit laden garland that sits over your fireplace’s mantel.
Mix up fruit with floral displays by taking cutting from a fruit tree, including some foliage.
Wreaths are not just for the front door, so enliven a laundry room, for instance, with one.
Berries, such as cranberries, set in a light fitting can make for a great addition to a room, offering a seasonal display.
