Fruit's so good for you

Evening Express (City Final) - Home Life - - HOME STYLE -

FRUIT isn’t just a healthy boost to your diet – it can pro­vide the inspiration for an in­jec­tion of bold de­sign into your home. Long-recog­nised for its health ben­e­fits, fruit’s bright colours and sim­ple shapes can be a real tonic for decor. And this sea­son, fruit-themed ac­ces­sories have be­come a re­ally pop­u­lar choice. Achiev­ing a con­tem­po­rary look is eas­i­est with bold prints on items like chop­ping boards, tea tow­els and ta­ble cloths and there are a range of these in the shops to choose from. Un­sur­pris­ingly, the kitchen is a pop­u­lar area for fruit prints. This ap­ple de­sign chop­ping board (1), £12.95 from www.dot­comgift­shop.com, is a funky way to add some fruity flavour – or how about this ap­ple-themed toast rack (2), £6 from Mata­lan? Ap­ple-print oven gloves (3) will also fit well with the theme and are avail­able for £3.95, from www.home­home­home.co.uk, as will the trendy fruits col­lec­tion red mug (4), £1.99, from Dunelm Mill. Mov­ing out of the kitchen, you can be trendy on the go with a pearprint flask (5), £13.99 from www.co­coa-bean.co.uk Fruit or­na­ments can look bold and dif­fer­ent to add a bit of fun to rooms away from the kitchen. These pear-shaped or­na­ments (6) from Next, £20, would look great in any bed­room or liv­ing room. This fruity lamp­shade (7), £36, from www.hunky­do­ry­home.co.uk, will add a bit of fun to any room – es­pe­cially a child’s bed­room. When look­ing for ways to in­cor­po­rate fruit themes into your prop­erty, why not think about choos­ing your favourite fruit to splash around your house? This will make you smile when you see it – and may even en­cour­age you to eat healthily too.
