Decorating Diva: Easter-inspired Decor
Welcome to Decorating Diva, where every week we share fresh, fun ways to update your home and spice up your living space! We love decorating for Easter and still have a soft spot for the springtime ritual of dying eggs in varying shades of blue, green, pink and yellow. We’re using this much-loved tradition – of freshly-dyed eggs in eye-popping colors – to inspire our current crop of must-haves for every room. Check out our picks for eggshell-inspired home accents just in time for the Easter bunny’s arrival.
6 Stylish ways to Decorate for Easter
It's not every day we get to decorate with a rainbow of shades reminiscent of newly-dyed eggs, but it's that cheerful palate that has us excited to add some bunny-approved color to our home for Easter. Take a look at our current favorites.
We guarantee you'll be instantly reminded of a cheerful basket of Easter eggs when you look at this vibrant blue pillow from CB2 ($39.95). Toss a few onto a neutral couch to instantly spice up your space and use the high-energy hue to add a burst of color to any room.
Bring in the bowls
Brighten up your next meal with these pretty colored bowls from West Elm (now $12). Available in yellow, light green and both light and dark blue they can be used for snacks, to serve dips or individual portions of soup, rice or salad. We just happen to love how cheerful they look stacked on the counter!
Line your windowsill in several of these lively yellow pots from Crate and Barrel ($16.95). Plant them up with fragrant herbs and watch your miniature kitchen garden grow. Alternatively, add a splash of color to any surface by using them as tea light holders. We recommend a row on your mantle for a simple yet eye-catching focal point.
Place some fresh cut flowers in this ornate rose-colored vase from Anthropologie ($16) to officially welcome warmer weather – and Easter – into your home. The vase also comes in yellow and blue, but we're partial to the soft rose and cream color combination.
Come fly away
Add a light-hearted element to walls with Umbra's monarch wall decor ($7 for six) in a bold shade of fuchsia. The delicate butterflies can be attached to any wall with the accompanying mounting hardware and add a unique and playful look to any room in the house.
In praise of pastels
We couldn't resist this pretty pastel rug ($34.94 from Amazon) – perfect for adding some Easter-inspired charm to your entryway or kitchen. The floral design is cheerful and the soft shades of pinks, yellows, purples and blues will help ensure the Easter bunny feels welcome.
Other simple way to Decorate for Easter
- Fill a large vase with glass beads in eggshell-inspired hues (green or pink are great for spring).
- A clear pitcher filled with water, various berries and slices of lemon makes for a pretty (and delicious) addition to your countertop. The pops of pink and yellow are both cheerful and eggshell-inspired.
- Don't forget about baskets filled with colorful Easter eggs – choose shades that match your decor for simple, seasonal coordination.
