Fruit Displays Sweeten Summer Interiors
Eating the rainbow takes on a new meaning in these seasonally inspired fresh fruit accents
Fruit may be a great source of dietary fiber, packed with nutritional benefits and high vitamin content, but the designer in me can't help loving it for its styling capabilities. Much like displaying fresh flowers, a fruit arrangement adds life to your interior and offers a refreshing punch. This summer, take a hint from nature and creatively display your fruit before digging in.
Clementines are flanked by fresh greens, all artfully displayed in a piece from Ikea's Fintorp collection.
Accessorizing your outdoor dining table is a must. Display Granny Smith apples in a large, clear bowl for a go-to centerpiece.
A massive wooden fruit bowl offers the perfect contrast against a sleek white Carrara marble countertop.
Mix it up and display different fruits in different bowls. Variety is the spice of life!
While fruit is perishable, fruit artwork is not.
Fill a small, narrow vessel with water and flowers and place it in the center of a larger vase. Then, hide the smaller container by surrounding it with fruit for the ultimate summer arrangement.
Separate and display your fruit in style with stackable farmer's market- inspired crates.
Adding fruit to a neutral interior is an excellent way to play around with new color schemes.
