Hanging Fruit Baskets

If, like me, you have very little counter space in your kitchen you might find this idea as tempting as I have–hanging fruit baskets. I love the pops of color that fruit adds to the mix and the hanging baskets really add something special to the spaces–almost like still-life paintings–know what I mean? I’ve created a little roundup of how to get the look. I’m tempted to hook this up stat in my jungalow, I’m leaning towards the flat basket style. Which do you fancy?

    Fruit baskets are such a great idea. everything what hangs and holds something adds a an interesting detail to the room

  6. That’s so ironic that you did this post because finding a cool fruit basket that doesn’t take up counter space is the Bain of my existence! My question is…do these baskets allow for the fruit to breathe? Apparently there’s some science involved in your fruit not going bad as quickly with the right basket. Some cause premature molding on the fruit so it’s been a real challenge finding one that hangs or doesn’t take up tooth space, but also doesn’t aid in decaying the fruit!
