Looking for a fresh pick for spring and summer? Fruit and vegetable patterns are a natural. Plenty can be found in the kitchen – on towels, aprons and table linens – but the patterns spill over into fashion as well. Berry nice.

Two-in-one: The Kuhn Rikon foldable tool not only hulls and cuts strawberries, it also looks like one. Priced $12 at www.williams-sonoma.com.

Fruity fun: Imagine a table set with this Watermelon check cotton placemat, $5.99, and napkin, $4.99, from Wegmans.

Your pick: Botanical towels come in four patterns – red fruits, citrus fruits, green beans and onions. Priced $19.95 for a set of two at Williams- Sonoma, Walden Galleria, and www.williams sonoma.com.

Strawberry fields: In step with the trends is the Converse Jack Purcell strawberry-printed Helen sneaker, originally priced $80. Among the places to find it: www.converse.com and www.dsw.com.
