Hey there.

Welcome to Quarter-Life Living, my outlet to help others bring style and sophistication to their twenty-something homes. Everyone deserves to love where they live, no matter the square footage.

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS

If you have eye balls, then you've seen the following objects on some type of merchandise in the last few months:

  • Unicorns
  • Cactuses (and yes, I Googled to verify that this is also an acceptable plural).
  • Pineapples

While I'm absolutely not on board with the whole unicorn craze, I do see the appeal of adding the latter two to a home - in moderation.

FAST FACT:

Pineapples have actually been used as home decoration for centuries.

If there are any fellow Minnesotans reading this, I first learned about pineapple accents while touring the Glensheen Mansion in Duluth. I won't bore you on the lengthy history of this fruit, but it became a symbol of hospitality and welcome in the 1600s (and arguably even earlier than that). Later on, it also became a sign of prestige and wealth, but we'll skip that part and focus on the welcoming aspect.

Because of this hidden meaning, I'm fully on board with adding some fruity features in a home. While there are subtle ways to add this trend (like as a final on curtain rod), there are also bold pieces at a variety of stores - and lucky for you I've rounded up some options at the bottom of the page!
