Get the Look! Urban Equestrian

Hey Ya’ll. Get the Urban Equestrian look in your living space! As Donny and Marie sang A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock N’ Roll”. As I say…..a little bit country – a little bit Toronto, New York and Chicago! Let’s be inclusive friends.

Don’t you admire the 1920’s French Country Chair? Antiques can be incorporated into current interiors in a stylized way! Also…

  • Newer houses benefit from a couple of vintage or antique elements to add a sense of history
  • Older houses benefit from a few contemporary pieces to bring them forward
  • Too many antiques in an older home = museum central.

We are beings with a past, present and future. Our homes reflect us or at least we want them to!

    I love how you mixed old with new; I get the feeling of urban equestrian without an overwhelming amount of horsey stuff! That’s excellent advice: older houses need some contemporary items and vice versa. I’ve seen a number of older homes that are full of vintage and antiques – nothing modern – and it always feels kind of creepy.

      No one wants to live in creep zone right, except for maybe:

      1) Howard from 10 Cloverfield Lane
      2) Clowns
      3) Spiders
      4) Chuckie
      5) Anyone from the Walking Dead

      Glad your found the advice helpful,

      Yours in Décor,
