Whether the price hike is making these grocery staples more of a precious commodity or they’re simply having a moment in the spotlight, eggs have been trending across the design world for months now, and with spring—and especially Easter—on the horizon, there’s no better time to add the motif to your home in some way, shape, or form. No matter if you prefer to start small with a decorative accessory or you’re ready to shell out for furnishings or even wall coverings, you don’t need to put all your eggs in one basket because there’s no shortage of options to consider in this realm!

Inspired Pysanky

A celebrated ancient Ukrainian tradition, pysanky Easter eggs are intricately decorated using beeswax and dyes, and Missouri-based artist Katherine Alexander, who learned the practice from her Polish mother, is making a splash in the distinctive art form that’s been rising in popularity in recent years. “I enjoy the classic designs of my ancestors, but my hands keep reaching for modern bright colors and whimsical designs,” she writes of her work, which also includes jewelry and mosaics made from fragmented eggshells. The best part? Supporting her art helps her support Ukraine with frequent auctions and fundraisers.

From pastels to more saturated tones, they come in a spectrum of colors embellished with either crystal or ribbon trim, and they’re the perfect statement-making addition to any Easter tablescape.

The vintage-inspired pieces are adorned with golden trim, topped with a finial, and lined with velvet, and each one opens to reveal a darling animal. Use them in seasonal centerpieces and coffee-table vignettes, or close them up and give them a permanent spot as a chic accessory layered into a styled bookshelf curation year-round.
