Not Your Grandma's Hutch - now that's clever!

Are you looking for an updated, maybe even contemporary, look but you are working with dated or traditional furnishings?

That was the case for Ursalon, our Habitat for Humanity homeowner who worked with us to decorate her home. Her hutch – pictured – was dark and dated. Ursalon mentioned her love of green apples so we purchased realistic-looking fake ones at Linens-n-Things.

Rather than arrange them in a predictable decorative bowl, we placed them individually and on stands to create a modern look. The greens and yellows pop against the dark hutch making it look fresh – this is no longer your Grandma’s hutch.

Consider ditching your fruit bowl and placing your fruit throughout your home, in flower arrangements, in a line on your mantle, down the middle of the table…the possibilities are endless.
