Casa Quickie: Decorate With Apples

Having a vibrant home is crucial to an endless Summer. For some, that may translate to kids running through the house wet from a sprinkler, and others, a fresh coat of paint and some perky new throw pillows. But, I try not to always advocate consumerism because it really shouldn't be necessary to buy, buy, buy with each new season. One simple way to introduce color into your home is with apples!
The pomaceous fruit stays fresh looking for about four weeks. So, arranging a few in a bowl, on a plate, or even on your fireplace mantel, will instantly but not transiently add an accent color to your home. A bag of Granny Smith apples, or Red Delicious, goes for about $1.99, so it's not a huge investment. In addition to color, there's also an organic factor to them that is a nice way to combat the spareness of industrial-looking, modern homes. Of course, you can decorate with other colorful fruits, too, like lemons, but they don't tend to stay in shape for as long.
