All Things Easter: Artful Eggs

By PBK Editors

Dyeing and decorating eggs has always been a favorite Easter activity to do with kids. But why stop there? We thought the classic dyed egg could use some fresh new additions – so here are a few ideas that think outside the carton.

1. Mix stripes, dots and pattern with Colorful No-Dye Eggs from our Whimsical Easter Party. They’re easy, no-mess and absolutely sweet!

Color of the Month: Aqua

By PBK Editors

ColorStory-Swimming

Create a refreshing aqua nursery inspired by our favorite color this month: Sherwin-Williams Swimming SW 6764. From under-the-sea elements to geometric lines, aqua is the perfect summer shade to design a nursery with.

1. Let in the light in with a fun drape, like our aqua Pom Pom Sheer. For added versatility, layer it atop a blackout drape.

2. Under-the-sea dreams come to life as your little one falls asleep under our Ibiza Mobile.

3. Give your nursery some understated appeal with a summer-ready print, like in our Preston Nursery Bedding.

4. Add an exotic touch from a far-off place with a snuggly Ibiza Elephant Plush.

5. Bath time gets a splash of aqua with a set of our Geo Washcloths.

Is your nursery ready to splash into summer? Visit potterybarnkids.com to shop everything aqua – and visit our Design Services page for a special $15 offer from Sherwin-Williams.
