6 Easter Decor Ideas from the MDI Team

April 3, 2015

We love all of the decor possibilities this time of year brings, and we don’t mean you have to decorate in traditional Easter fashion with eggs aplenty. There are so many cute and quirky ways to celebrate the beloved holiday, including a few you may not have thought of. So we asked everyone at MDI to send over their favorite Easter decor ideas, and we’ve compiled them all here for you to peruse. We hope you enjoy. Oh, and Happy Easter!

Delta Amrhein

Behold this beautiful paper wall covering from Lee Jofa called Groundworks (Bunny Wall Black, Hunt Slonem collection), which is Delta’s favorite Easter decor idea!

Alex Hendricks

Alex shed some light on Easter decor when she sent us this adorable design idea, a Wildwood hand-painted porcelain Dignified Rabbit Lamp. Perfect for Easter but also great for the kids’ room year-round.

Elisabeth Lyons

Elisabeth submitted this wonderfully whimsical wallpaper pattern by William Morris and Co. she was introduced to in her History of Design class. This Brer Rabbit pattern was inspired by a 17th-century Italian silk registered for a pattern for the first time in 1882. Named after the Uncle Remus story popular at the time, this wallpaper was reproduced from the original fabric.

Alexis Wilks

Meet The Egg, a favorite from Alexis: Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958, this egg chair was used in the lobby and reception areas in Copenhagen’s grand Royal Hotel. Jacobsen designed every aspect of the hotel, down to its furniture. His website states that “The Egg is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design.”

Katelynn Bacher

These yellow-banded Easter salad plates would look beautiful on a dining table this Sunday. Beautifully illustrated with charming little bunnies, there’s nothing not to love about these vintage-inspired dishes, great for desserts and appetizers, too.

Margaret Donaldson

And finally, Margaret advises to, when in doubt, go with robin’s egg blue. From adding a coat of robin’s egg blue paint (like this Robin’s Nest hue from Benjamin Moore) to a special spot in your home to reupholstering with a fabric like this one by from Moda, this sweet shade is always a winner.

What’s your Easter decor plan for the weekend?
