This past weekend marked the 137th run of the Kentucky Derby at Louisville, Kentucky’s Churchill Downs. For a lot of people the occasion was just an excuse to indulge in one vice or another. However, for the horse lovers among us, the event conjures the romance and elegance of the equestrian world.
So what better time to show off a few of our favorite equine home decor items?
1. Cast Iron Hitching Post Horse
Use it as a bookend, a doorstop, or a classy decorative touch. The antique finish lends itself to a variety of design schemes.
2. Horse Decoupage Wastebasket
The design on this wastebasket is reminiscent of English racing prints. It also comes with an optional matching tissue box cover.
3. Morris Wall Decal
Who could forget our own Morris print? For a contemporary interpretation of the equestrian portrait, this 25″ x 25″ vinyl decal is removable, and like all of our sticker art, won’t damage walls.
