One of my favorite trends this past season has been fruit patterns in both clothing and home design. The bright and cheery colors are the perfect reflection of the spring and summer, but don’t think that this means that it will go away come fall. Nope! It’s here to stay. Through subtle color gradation changes, the trend will easily transition into fall; you can find them applied to a variety of surfaces, such as pillows, children’s clothing, and shoes. Let’s take a look at some of the best fruit applied products out there.

Fruit patterns for the home:

  1. Fruit welcome mats. This is actually a DIY project that I did for my blog. I took a circular Ikea mat, cut it in two, and then sprayed the pieces to look like a lemon and watermelon. It’s such a fun statement to welcome people into your home.

  2. Pear print. This cute pear adds a bright and cheery dash of chartreuse to your walls.

  3. Seeded fruit print. French designer Caroline Bourles created this lovely print for an exhibition in Paris two years ago that is right in style right now.

  4. Blackberry throw pillow. This blackberry printed pillow would work in a variety of seasons because the more muted tones can work with other colors and patterns.

  5. Fruit patterns in Fashion:

  6. Fruit summer dress. This fun and flirty dress from ASOS is a fresh take on the fruit trend.

  7. Fruit cocktail dress. Samantha Pleet’s fruit peplum dress can transition to fall because of it’s more red color scheme.

  8. Fruits by big designers. Even the big designers have taken the trend on and applied it to dresses, shirts, and pants.

  9. SO! Are you taking fruits with you into fall? What’s your favorite print here?
