Pineapple trend - Australian-designed ideas for home

It's warming up and I'm feeling tropical. Maybe that's why I'm noticing all the pineapples around me - in interiors, on Pinterest, on Instagram, on fabric, in magazines - it's the Tommy Bahama-look! Or maybe it's because I'm from Queensland and have always had a soft spot for this spiky fruit. No matter - it's a trend and it's coming your way.

This pineapple-filled image by Brisbane stylist extraordinaire Kara Rosenlund, taken in her home, took my breath away and serves as great inspiration for pineapples in interiors.

So with pineapples on my mind, here are some ideas for you using Australian-designed products to incorporate the tropics into your home:

 Escape To Paradise white polyresin pineapple

 Keren Brown yellow pineapples fabric

K Trade pineapple jute canvas

Keren Brown navy and yellow pineapple cushions

Henrietta & Morty pineapple cushion (blue) | K Trade lime pinapple cushion (on sale this week at Temple & Webster) | Henrietta & Morty pineapple cushion yellow

Escape To Paradise silver polyresin pineapple

Do you have any pineapples in your home? Or any other Australian-designed pineapple-inspired products to share? Or maybe just a fabulous pineapple cocktail. I'd love to hear.

A special thanks to Maddie (Colour Me There) and Bianca (Blush Loves Mint) for suggesting Keren Brown's pineapple fabric and cushions at the brown trading co. in Queensland.
