Pick A Winner With Equestrian Coastal Style

With race horse names such as Man'oWar, Seabiscuit and now California Chrome, it's easy to become inspired by two styles: equestrian and coastal. Typically stores will feature more traditional equestrian styles in the Fall, rich with worn leather, tweeds and plaids, but equestrian references can also work with coastal styles as well - just think beach polo or wild-horses. One home decor source to find both coastal and equestrian styles at is HomeGoods, and some can also be found at Pottery Barn. While HomeGoods has an abundance of coastal decor to choose from this season, I recently also spotted some equestrian pieces you can easily layer into your home...

LOVE the lines of this readers lamp - could be an alternative to ceramic bedside tables. It's lines reminded me of nesting tables I had seen in Pottery Barn, that can also work with equestrian or coastal style...

Both equestrian and coastal styles are excellent accents to work into rustic, cottage, and even farmhouse style decor. Here's a few inspirations including key elements of these styles, without either creating a space that is too themed...

  1. Love living in Lexington and the gentrified life in the bluegrass but this SoCal gal misses the shore. I'll take old Del Mar any day! Excellent post Lynda!
