As April approaches, everyone is anticipating Easter. The joyful tradition of painting Easter eggs is as old as history itself. For thousands of years the egg has been used to symbolize fertility and rebirth during spring festivals. The early Christians added to this tradition by dying eggs red to symbolize the blood Christ spilled for humanity. Since then it has evolved. Capitalism has taken a hold of the tradition, and now Easter eggs can be dyed a variety of colors, utilizing paint, glitter and expensive dyes.

As an enthusiast of interior design, it’s your job to make these eggs beautiful. Moreover, you want them to fit in with the overall design of your house. Indeed, Easter egg dying is a great way to bring the family together and brighten up the domus.

The Basket

Sometimes the basket is more important than the eggs. A wicker basket should suffice, however decorative bowls are also an option. When choosing a basket, look for one that is stylish and graceful. Anything you might imagine red riding hood would use is off limits. Also, eventually you will want to add some sort of lining to your Easter basket for aesthetic appeal and to prevent the eggs from breaking. The color of the eggs will dictate this.

The Eggs

Although there are an endless number of ways to dye your Easter eggs, we at AZ Aesthetics would like to recommend only one. This Easter season try using light blue and purple commercial dye to color your eggs. These colors will bring a sense of focus and creativity into the room that helps capture the spring season.
