Pineapples are still fresh and sweet

While some styles come and go, there’s one we are still loving, and like any piece of delicious fruit, it just keeps getting sweeter.

Did you know the pineapple has been a staple in home décor for centuries? Dating back to early Colonial Williamsburg, settlers would incorporate the fruit in the actual architecture of their home, symbolizing warmth, friendship and hospitality. The pineapple has permeated our lives ever since. We love sipping on pina coladas, delight in Dole Whips and top our pizzas and hamburgers with chunks of the sweet fruit. Since pineapples are officially in season, we thought it would be fun to share seven ways to sweeten up your home décor and closet with that ever-popular pineapple.

 

WALL HANGINGS

We are loving the popular quote: “Be a pineapple: Stand tall, wear a crown and stay sweet on the inside.” Found scrawled on plaques, wood art, kitchen towels and even printables, this quote is a great way to declare just one reason to love the piña.

CANDLESTICKS

Add a bit of artful elegance to your chunky, pillar or taper candles by placing them on top of candlesticks boasting a pineapple design.

BOOKENDS

A pair of shiny brass pineapples make a perfect addition to any well-styled bookcase. Whether containing your favorite classic novels or your treasured collection of cookbooks, there’s no sweeter way to display them than between a pair of fruity bookends.

Timelessly sweet, pineapples aren’t just reserved for tropical décor or vacation wear. Which way will you show your pineapple love?

PILLOWS

Pineapples might have a rough exterior, but they can be easily softened up when they take the form of a poofy pillow. Tossed on a bed, loveseat or even a porch swing, a pineapple pillow is a great way to add some tropical texture to any décor.

SHIRTS

Brighten up your outfit of the day with a fun, flirty graphic tee with a giant pineapple printed in rose gold. Or you could embrace the style with a more subtle embroidered pineapple on a T-shirt pocket. Simple and sweet.

BERMUDA SHORTS

If you’re heading out on a tropical vacation or not, a pair of Bermudas with a tiny pineapple pattern are sure to put you in a vacay mood!

JEWELRY

We love pineapples on bracelets, necklaces and earrings. A dangling pineapple charm bracelet or a delicate gold pineapple pendant are elegant ways to show your fruit love.
