While in Virginia last week, I passed miles and miles of beautiful horse farms. I definitely wouldn't mind living in one of these historic homes with acres and acres of rolling hills around me. To give you an idea of what I saw, here is one of the estates we passed. Amazing isn't it?
Of course all of the horses were captivating too. My grandfather, who we stayed with during our visit, has great style and had a bit of an equestrian flair at his own place. I couldn't help but think about how I would definitely love to have a similar style in my own home.
Adding horses to your decor doesn't mean your home has to look like it's from the wild west. Equestrian design is all about classic meeting chic, and I am a big fan.
This image reminds me of my grandfather's home as he has several antlers on the wall as well. However, this is actually the vacation home of the designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka.

Perhaps I should invest in some equine artwork of my own. This
Etsy shop has been on my favorites list for awhile. The artist has many beautiful photos, but this is one of my favorites.
I also love these
cognac parlor chair from Horchow.
I could get a plaid throw like this
, and then all I'll be missing from equine sanctuary are some antique silver trophies! :)
