We all know that citrus is healthy for us. Experts have been touting the power of Vitamin C for years. Beyond being a good source for vitamins, citrus can also be used to freshen up our homes as well as inspire colorful designs.
Citrus oils capture the fresh scent of orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit. They can be used to freshen up the air after cooking in the kitchen or combat other household odors. A few drops of citrus oil can be added to unscented cleaning products, especially homemade cleaning products, to add a clean fresh scent.
Beyond the scent of citrus, the colors of the fruits can also serve as design inspiration. Bright splashes of yellow, orange and green, combined or on their own, can add a touch of citrus to any room. Patterned fabric with slices of citrus makes a lively table cloth or tea towels in a kitchen. Kitchens are dining rooms are both great places to decorate with food themed décor. The easiest way to incorporate citrus into these rooms is a big bowl or even cylindrical vase filled with citrus. Using the actual fruit to decorate a tablescape is an inexpensive way to add color to the table.
Citrus is not only good for you, it can be good for your home and your décor too.
