One of the great things to look forward to in the summer months, is the time when fruit begins to appear. And not being ones to let such a glorious burst of nature go unnoticed, our nation’s interior designs have taken great inspiration from fruit, and here we’re going to take a look at how fruit has informed our interiors.

A classic aesthetic use of fruit in our homes is seen via the fruit-bowl on a table. This living room below shows how apples can bring a welcome burst of colour into a room. Especially when matched with the accompanying apple-green chair and bench!


And this modern living room illustrates the power of contrast by placing the cool greys and whites of the soft furnishings against the warm and multi-coloured selection of apples placed centre-stage.


This dining room displays a wondrous fruit and vegetable wallpaper that provides a light-hearted backdrop to the more simple furniture in the room. By matching the blue on the wallpaper to the fabric on the chairs, and allowing the clean white lines to add definition, it’s a charming and playful space to dine and entertain.


Fruit motifs also work really well in children’s bedrooms. They offer a fresh and familiar iconography in a playful way, and there is something timeless about their shape and colour that will never go out of style!


And if you really want to indulge in a fruit-themed room, then why not check out this almost psychedelic child’s bedroom. With an eye-watering concoction of pink and orange pineapple wallpaper, matching cloud patterned ceiling and a host of candy-coloured soft furnishings, it’s almost as energising as a glassful of tropical punch!
