There is perhaps no look that speaks more of luxury and old world style than that of the equestrian influence – It represents a lifestyle that celebrates and embraces the outdoors, tradition and sport, as well as one of class, elegance and culture. There’s a reason the equestrian look never fades from the public eye – The lines are classic and sturdy, timeless. The look is strongly masculine but with graceful undertones – like the creature itself, strong agile, nimble. The colors, elegance and masculinity that is so often associated with this decor, the deep jewel tones, bronzes, and plaids lend themselves perfectly to Christmas decor. Below, some very simple yet sophisticated ideas for both home and barn. (I saved my very favorite for last!)
