The Easter season is all about new beginnings, so breathe some new life into your home decor with our pick of the top ten Easter-themed home accessories.
1. Kitchen roll holder, Alessi
Alessi kitchen roll holder
We couldn’t resist this bunny and carrot kitchen roll holder by iconic design brand Alessi. It’ll add just the right note of quirkiness to a modern kitchen, and it’s practical to – the bunny rotates to keep the end of the roll in place when not in use. Made from thermoplastic resin, it’s available in green, pink and blue and costs £31 from Red Candy.
2. Fossil rug, Kelaty
Estella fossil oval design rug
This Fossil rug from the Estella range gives a note to traditional Easter eggs with its unusual curved shape made from overlapping ovals. It has a modern colour palate that would add an unusual focal point to any modern decor. £269, available from Kelaty.
3. Rabbit lamp, Front for Moooi
Rabbit lampshade by Front for Moooi
Light up your home in more than one way with this rabbit lamp. The rabbit is lifesize, and looks so real you think he’s on the point of twitching his nose. This would make a lovely addition to a children’s room, or a great talking point in a sitting room. £338, available from Rume.
4. Aki runner rug, Pappelina
This rug from Pappelina is made from woven plastic
Pappelina is a Swedish company that designs and manufactures unique, modern rugs and a wide range of other soft furnishings. These unusual yet practical rugs are made from soft Swedish plastic and hand-woven in Sweden using old traditional weaving looms, so they’re hard wearing and waterproof. The bright colours and simple design, reminiscent of flowers or butterflies, are ideal for spring. Prices start at £85, available from Cloudberry Living.
5. Wall tree sticker, RoomMates
Tree wall sticker from RoomMates
Bring the outside in with this wall tree sticker. Although it’s intended for children’s bedrooms or nurseries, we think it would also cheer up a garden room or even the inside of a posh shed. The leaves, birds and butterflies will add a touch of spring. £25, available from Becky and Lolo.
6. Egg cups, Sagaform
Cylindrical egg cups from Sagaform
These just might be the coolest egg cups we’ve ever seen. Four cylindrical stoneware egg cups by Swedish design company Sagaform are stacked on a light bamboo stand when not in use. £23, available from The Scandinavian Shop.
7. Rabbit and cabbage tea towel, Thornback & Peel
Cotton rabbits and cabbages tea towel
This cream cotton tea towel is made in Britain and hand printed with brown rabbits and green cabbages, mixing fresh, contemporary colour with traditional imagery. £12.95, available from Annabel James.
8. Country meadow Easter wreath, Gisela Graham
Country meadow Easter wreath by Gisela Graham
Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas – we think this lovely faux wreath with speckled eggs, blossom, buds and twisted willow would add a little spring charm to any front door or wall. £30, available from The Contemporary Home.
9. Metal jugs, Gisela Graham
Vintage metal jugs by Gisela Graham
In beautiful fresh springtime colours, these vintage style metal jugs are ideal for holding spring flowers, kitchen utensils, straws or a host of other things, and will be sure to brighten up your home. Available in pink, yellow, blue and green, £7 each, from The Contemporary Home.
