As much as I love a beautifully designed hallway, I love equestrian style interiors. There is something so warm and inviting about them. To me, they represent a balance of relaxation and elegance.
I draw quite a bit of my home's interior inspiration from equestrian style rooms, hoping to evoke a Ralph Lauren feeling. I keep my riding boots, bridle, and helmet in our entryway for easy access for a quick ride as well as for design purposes.
One of my favorite aspects of equestrian style interior inspiration is a rich wall color. Our entryway is a very deep purple, and I plan on painting our rec.
I love the art hung on the exposed studs creating a finished space.

Vintage finds such as old velvet helmets and cut crystal glasses are the perfect small details.
