It’s a shame I can’t impose my love for horses on my beloved family. Our apartment is relatively small and whilst a small touch of it would be regal, it would also create a kind of equine-themed claustrophobia that I wouldn’t want my family to suffer from!But I do love the look of a spacious, modern or country house with an equestrian flair, something I plan to own in my lifetime. I’m thinking, when the kids fly the nest and my husband becomes to old to even care about how I decorate the house!
In the mean time, I couldn’t help but surf the net in search of home decor ideas to give my future home (and yours too, if that’s what you’re looking to achieve) that horsey goodness – whatever your budget.
I like subtly when it comes to interiors. I wouldn’t over do it with equestrian pieces in every corner of the room. Neither would I go for very bright colours, and over-stated patterns… I’d probably stick to a simple and subtle look, and for colours: pastels, navy, greys and browns.
See below for some inspiration on how to subtly add equestrian design touches to your home. There are so many options online, but these are just a few pointers.
