Fun Ways To Use Fruit With Interior Designs

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.
