Pony Rider for Christmas…?

I like creating a set of rules because generally I’ll break them.(Kelly Searl of Pony Rider)

You gotta’ love a designer who creates rules simply so she can then break them, I think…

I have started thinking about Christmas. I know its only the beginning of November. Believe me, LM thinks I’m crazy (but then, he doesn’t like to plan beyond next week). Here’s the thing, though – I’m a Kiwi. And, I live in Australia. And, I take Christmas-pressie selection seriously. And, I need to factor in shipping times if I’m to order just the right gift from the northern hemisphere. And, I started seeing Christmas decorations in the middle of October, so that makes me positively tardy!

Anyhoo, all that means is I’ve started browsing some of my favourite online stores for Chrissie ideas. A surprisingly time-consuming process. And, one of those favourites is Sydney-based design label Pony Rider.

With a design ethos all about celebrating the beauty in the ordinary everyday things, the very talented designer (and co-founder) Kelly Searle, creates locally manufactured home-wares with a uniquely quirky bent. The hardest thing is picking a favourite.

Here’s a sampling of some of the pieces that particularly appeal…

Oh, I love the retro-zest! My pick? Gran’s Recipe Wall Flag! I wonder if they have other recipes. I’m off now to check out the site. I also LOVE the “Santa Free Drinks Here” sign. 🙂 AB-FAB colors! T.

I love Gran’s flag, too. Such a simple concept executed with style…

Love the quilt design and the oversized bag. Kx

Me too, K! I think there is a very clear ‘Pony Rider footprint’ – in the use of texture, colour and fabrics. I like it!

Perfect day is the one I like …

Fred, that surprises me not at all
