Last friday we shared some clever easter egg ideas here & here so now its time to share some decor inspiration for easter. Below are some beautiful images of how to decorate your indoor & outdoor space this easter. If you wish to share your bunny creations with us and our readers, we would really appreciate it if you could drop us a comment or an email to your link. Here’s to a great weekend! x
I am loving this clever easter idea. The first step to empty the egg is making two small holes in the opposite corners of the raw egg using a needle.
Now it’s question of patience: the content of the egg will fall when it dumps. If we fail we can enlarge the hole in the bottom and blow through the top hole, being careful not to put too much pressure to avoid breaking the shell.
When it’s completely empty, wash it gently to remove excess and let dry.
The next step is to paint to your liking with plastic paints or watercolors.
While the paint dries, write our message in a thin strip of paper, roll up and introduce it through the largest hole of the egg (bottom).
The final step is to find a nice box and carefully wrap it as a gift and surprise them all!

A weekend desert residence for a family and their dog, the Four Eyes House is an exercise in site-specific experiential programming. Rather than planning the house according to a interior functional program, the house was designed foremost as an instrument for intensifying a number of on site phenomenal events.
Designed by Los Angeles based Edward Ogosta Architecture. The unique design was based on “sleeping towers” are oriented towards four viewing experiences: morning sunrise to the east, mountain range to the south, evening city lights to the west, and nighttime stars overhead. Each tower contains a compact top-floor bedroom, sized only for the bed, and each captures directed towards the view.
The bedrooms are equal in size and remain unassigned for family members to rotate throughout based on their desired viewing experience.

Project: Church of Living | Architects: Zecc Architecten | Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands | Compleated: 2007
Zecc Architecen designed this amazing project for the ‘Church of Living’ which would make anyone’s jaw drop. The entire location, concept and design was masterfully defined for modern living. One could not believe that this in fact is a church and although actually living in a Church might not be suitable to some everyone would agree that the overall creativity and achievement with this property is extraordinary to say the least. My firm is doing a renovation just like this for a client in Sydney, so I thought I do some research to see some other church renovations, which to my surprise it is very common and many beautiful restorations out there!
Evidently, The Church of Living is not a typical home. It was completely renovated from an old Catholic Church into a spatial residence. It’s aim was to create a unique home and that has been greatly achieved.
The renovations bring charm and personality to the Church of Living and just imagine the outstanding colourful light reflections from those stunning stained windows – in all that white space? It certainly is something so magical and peaceful. The comparison between the new and old is perfect in this custom home. The black open stairs make the place look bigger and they certainly fit great in the rest of the open space.
What are your thoughts? Would you live in there? I love to hear from you all.
