Easter may be over, but egg décor – subtle or otherwise – can carry the joy associated with new life through the spring season in all kinds of cool ways.
Well, new life is what eggs symbolize during the holiday, but it’s a familiar shape that can take on any meaning you choose. What’s cool about it is that it’s so prevalent as part of our culture that you can use it as a design theme with no fear of running out of décor options.
Don’t believe it? Here are just a few décor areas where you can count on getting eggy with it.
Doorknobs, cabinet pulls curtain tiebacks – these are some of the sneakiest ways you can sprinkle some egg shapes into your décor. It won’t make a world of difference alone, but paired with other accents you’ll notice a theme start to emerge from its shell, if you will.
Egg shapes feature prominently in all kinds of textiles, from rugs and drapes to table runners and linens. The oval, with its natural curves, is often so subtle you may not even notice it.
A literal take on the theme is also a popular way to go. Ever hear of Faberge eggs? If not, you should take a look. There are only 42 left in the world, a handful of which remain missing, and the last one to be found was sold for $33 million. Popular décor, indeed!
Eggs, with their sunny centers and white shells, are natural inspiration for lighting designers, and so you’ll often see the shape represented in their creations.
Have fun playing with this theme in your interior décor and see if you can uncover even more egg-ceptional decorating ideas!
