I have waited to post this at just the right time, and the whimsical side of Easter seems fitting. After all, what is Easter without the Easter Bunny? That cute little ball of fur with the quintessentially floppy ears, that ended up as the poster animal for all things related to Spring. Well, if you are Hunt Slonem then they are a muse for wallpapers, inspired fabrics and wallpapers and even carpet. Yes, Mr. Slonem has turned the proverbial rabbit into a trademark that has been featured in magazines from Architectural Digest to Elle Decor.
In fact, I would even feel comfortable saying that the bunny has become iconic in the world of design, in the realm of Scalamandre’s Zebra. Last year pleasure of meeting Hunt last year, he is delightful and has turned the design world on its ear with his wallpaper for Groundworks at Lee Jofa. Hunt’s artwork has also shown up in prestigious galleries across the US. “Exotica” seems like a fitting description, and the world of interior design has taken notice of this fuzzy and charming abstraction of this four-legged creature.
“I would say, my whole life could be summed up by the word Exotica.” -Hunt Slonem

It’s childlike and sophisticated, and can translate well in a nursery or master bedroom. Imagine entire colonies of Hunt’s bunnies hopping across your wall. As with the legions of people who follow his work, I love his designs, they appeal to a sense of sophisticated whimsy capturing the child-like wonder. So I thought, I would share a little bunny love although most of the pictures feature Hunt Slonem, I’ve also added a few favorites that remind me that life should never be taken too seriously, and a reminder that we should never lose our sense of childhood wonderment. I hope your Easter is filled with family, friends and floppy ears.
