Nothing exudes summer more to me than a beautiful bowl of cherries. It’s the perfect summer dessert, and looks incredible as a centerpiece.

Now is the time they seem the sweetest — during this unbearable heat that most of the country is experiencing right now.
I love to eat them, but I’m also loving the endless possibilities of using a burst of red in your home. With cherries you can dial it up — going for a bright red, like in this smart office. I love the punch of color in the carpet tiles and the painted mirror frame.

Likewise, you can opt for a darker shade of cherry — a deeper, richer red. This gallery wall — with dark cherry red frames — is such an inspiration for an otherwise boring hallway. Great idea for my upcoming hall renovation!

And just for fun, I couldn’t resist this beautiful, vintage red suitcase. A great find like this from an estate sale could prove to be an unusual and colorful room accent.

Happy cherry picking!
