Design Insider: Fresh Design Straight From the Market!
1. Get Your Fill - Try taking an antique bird cage and filling it with your favorite produce. If you can't find a bird cage, you can use any interesting basket or decorative plate. Red apples are great for the fall!
2. Recycle Decor - Use produce to add to existing accessories. Once, I came across two fabulous candlesticks and used grapes to fill in the middle section. The grapes draped beautifully and brought more attention to the candlesticks.3. Fresh Taste - Farmers markets normally have a wonderful selection of fresh flowers and plants. For something unexpected, create an outdoor garden in any room by placing bunches of flowers in a desk or buffet drawer.
4. Purple Power - If you are looking for an inexpensive home decor accessory that will last, I love fresh lavender! You can normally find a large selection of lavendar at markets. Place a bunch of lavender in a silver canister for an intoxicating aroma and interesting detail.The inexpensive nature of these ideas gives you the liberty to play around and try new things!
