The Bunnification of My Domicile Continues Apace

I'm very impressed with people who change the décor of their homes based on the seasons, but that's just not who I am. I do some years put up a somewhat overly-decorated Christmas tree, but that's pretty much it for seasonal décor.


Sometimes this surprises people, and I get it. If you were to see my apartment in spring, it's clear that I go all-out decorating for Easter, hence the mad proliferation of rabbits everywhere. But that's not for Easter, my friends. In my world, it's rabbits all year round.


I also don't care that the Year of the Rabbit has made way for the Year of the Dragon this month. Chez moi, it's 366 days of rabbits in 2024.


When a new decorative item with a rabbit motif enters my apartment, I tell my husband that "the bunnification of my domicile continues apace." Because while many people have a plethora of ideas about what they want their décor to accomplish practically and stylistically, my two primary goals are (1) comfort and (2) rabbit-ness.


There have been a few changes on both of these fronts since I described my home's College Living 2.0 aesthetic. On the comfort side, I have a new desk chair to use at my craft table, a larger TV on which I can actually read the descriptive text on Netflix, and a new recliner for watching said TV.


On the rabbit side, these are some of the additions in the last few months that feature this most-Easter-y mammal for your spring-is-coming enjoyment:


A mat for our entryway, de rigueur for the winter/spring wet boot season in Minnesota (I purchased it online).

Rabbit mat

A plump and judgmental Dutch rabbit figurine (a gift from my mother in law).

Rabbit figurine

A white rabbit table lamp (gift from my mom). I had actually been complaining to my husband about the lack of light in the living room so this one is both practical and stylish. I asked my husband to find a place for it, and he selected this great spot next to my favorite piece of furniture and a rabbit puppet.

Rabbit lamp

A sweet double rabbit pillow, perfect for winter but we know it'll be on the sofa year round (a gift from my mother in law).

A sweet single rabbit plus bird pillow, perfect for spring/summer but we know it'll be on the sofa year round (a gift from my mom).

Rabbit pillow - summer

The rabbit figurine came wrapped in this gorgeous cotton quilting fabric that features plants, flowers, butterflies, bunnies, a blue moon and stars, and...a noxious fog?? The rabbits don't know what that atomic cloud is, and neither do I. I love this one bizarre element on an otherwise pretty pattern!

Rabbit fabric

Do you do any seasonal decorating for spring? For Easter? Do you have any rabbit décor in your house? Do you have any favorite motifs that show up again and again in your décor year round? What do you think the rabbits are looking at on that fabric?

We do the same, an overly decorated Christmas tree and then not a lot else all year!

I love all your bunnies, but I'm thinking that's not a fog of noxious gas but a branch from a tree that is in the foreground. :-D

A branch from a tree makes so much more sense, haha! Guess my mind is a strange place. Nice to know another "overly decorated Christmas tree" and not much else decorator!

You've got some sweet bunnies! And "bunnification" is a fabulous word! I do decorate a little for each season, but the bigger ones are Christmas and Easter. Maybe some day when I'm retired I'll go as all-out as I see some bloggers do... but probably not. :) I don't necessarily have recurring decor, but winter is my least favorite season, so I do really enjoy decorating with flowers in the spring. Thanks for sharing this post at the Will Blog for Comments #27 post. See you next time! Have a great week.

Thanks, Jennifer! Even though I do like winter, I also get very excited about the coming of spring so I love the idea of flower decorations! I like having flower-themed decor (and clothing/accessories) even in the depths of winter.

So many bunnies! I love the lamp and the door mat. All I have is a little crochet Peter Rabbit, but he is very cute. #pocolo

Peter Rabbit is such a classic choice, can't go wrong with that!

So many cute bunny decor items! I really only decorate for fall/thanksgiving and Christmas then the rest of our decor stays pretty much the same all year long.

That makes sense, Joanne; I think a lot of people like decorating fall and Christmas but otherwise stick with the same decor.

I love that phrase - "the bunnification of my domicile." A few years ago I had lots of sheep decor in a previous abode. The bunnies are cute and an individual touch, better I think than all the IG inspired seasonal updates!

Ooooh, I like the idea of sheep decor as a motif! Thanks, Gail.
