Equestrian Chic

atlanta tti

There is something quite regal about interiors that feature horses or equestrian touches. Like the horses themselves, there is often an element of elegance and beauty that few other animals can provide. There is a sort of relaxed stateliness that I associate with horses featured in interiors. My dear friend is an equestrienne and she carries herself with the grace and elegance that you would expect. She also has the most beautiful, equestrian-inspired Hermes scarf in one of her guest bathrooms that is simply stunning. I wish I had a picture of it!

Anyhow, I was going through the images on my computer the other day and came across the gorgeous image above. It is from Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle and was featured on Things That Inspire a while ago. I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous shades of orange when I first saw this room. My home is currently undergoing an orange takeover in a few areas! The second thing I noticed were the beautiful Circa Lighting Studio Floor Lamps and Zodiac Pendant. Then finally, my eyes were transfixed on the spellbinding Lord Denver Horse Triptych on the wall. My eyes were glued for a good while until I decided to pull together some images of other inspiring interiors featuring horses.

  1. This takes me back to my riding days growing up with horses. I often find that I dress equestrian without meaning to – blazers, tight jeans tucked into riding boots. These photos have me thinking I should continue the theme into decor. Now all I need is the horse…

  2. Badgley and Mishcka’s home is one of my favorites. I’ve always wanted to incorporate this style into my home…just not sure how sometimes. It can be hard to mix all your favorite styles. I guess it just takes time to come up with a good balance.

  3. While I’ve never really been a horse person at all I am starting to like them more and more with all these equestrian touches I’ve been seeing. The one house that really changed my mind is Badgley Mishcka’s home- omg that home is to die for!

  4. I love equestrienne influences in the home, and especially how you described it– it’s exactly what my mother and I were going for when she moved and I was helping her decorate the new house. This post would have been very helpful! Thank you! :)

  5. Great post- Love the etsy horse prints! The unknown is Francisco Costa’s NY apartment. I was going to post his apartment on my blog Studio Stella (tumblr). The whole house is amazing. Thanks, your blog is so great!

  6. Amazing pics! I particularly like the image from the Atlanta Home and Lifestyle and from Tom Filicia. Love the strong color, the equestrian inspired images in all the spaces were wonderful.

  7. I love horse art and equestrian influences in interiors!
    There is another interesting post over at ‘Moss Eclectic’ on this subject which you may enjoy. (www.mosseclectic.com/…/wild-wild-horses.html)
