How to Squeeze the Most Out of Juicy Decor

Celebrate your favourite fruits with colourful ceramics that serve up sunshine year-round.

Summer may officially be over (yes, we’re in our March mourning period) but that needn’t mean the end of sunshine, outdoor entertaining and all things berry and bright. As the Southern Hemisphere falls into autumn, we naturally start to dream about sundrenched sojourns and European escapes a La Dolce Vita. And while we might not all be able to live out our wildest White Lotus, Sicilian summer fantasies, there’s nothing to say a good dose of vitamin D can’t be had southside.

Here at Gigi&Tom we’re choosing to serve up the sweet life with a side of vitamin C inspired ceramics that will take your tableware from tired to tutti frutti.

The fruit-themed décor trend continues to stay in season. From strawberries to juicy lemons, limes and oranges, there’s a flavour for all wanting to take their tableware for a fruity spin.

Why we’re dishing up fruit-themed homewares:
1. They serve as a daily reminder to hit your 5 & 2 a day.
There’s no excuse when your kitchenware is literally shaped like fruit and veg. And technically, avocado is a fruit, so slather that sourdough with green goodness for a quick, easy and delicious breakfast or brunch staple and you’ll be well on your way to hitting your daily targets.

2. They add colour that pops:
Nature’s rainbow truly is a wonderland of colour and brightness. Style your tablescape with shades of sunny lemon yellow, tart tangerine and sweet strawberry red for a colourful cacophony that will ensure your tableware’s the best of the zest.

3. They tickle our travel bug:
Citrus ceramics are a Mediterranean staple, with fruit-themed glazed plates and crockery found in abundance from the Adriatic to the Amalfi. Injecting your interior styling with a twist of citrus will serve your wanderlust well throughout the wintery months.

Three ways to style your fruit wares from maximal to minimal:
1. Centrepiece sensation: Shy to style your home with the full fruity colour spectrum? Add a pop of colour against classic white tableware to keep entertaining pared back and chic, allowing your fruity piece to become a focal point on your table.

2. Double down with double the dose: Take inspiration from your ceramic plates and bowls. Utilize lemon-themed ceramics as a lemon bowl for ultimate countertop citrusy sunshine, easily within reach for adding a citrusy slice to your sparkling water, tea or G&T (who are we to judge!)

3. Full on fruit salad: Style your kitchen, dining or outdoor table with the season’s best of nature’s bounty. From fruit-shaped vases to kitchen canisters to ice buckets, there’s plentiful options to infuse your decorating diet with fruity ceramics ripe for the picking.

So hit the apple aisle as you dream of sunny isles and prepare to dress your table with Dolce Vita Homewares ripe for the picking.
