Equestrian decor can be absolutely chic and gorgeous.

Installing a built-in daybed covered with white sheets in a dark nook completed with wall shelves above with the addition of several throw pillows, artwork, some bright orange accessories and an arched Gothic window creates a sense of serenity and coziness in a small space.

A stack of logs and a combination of well-worn saddle on a wooden delicate chair, dark wide wood wall paneling and a pair of black leather equestrian riding boots and a pair of rubber boots evokes a sense of equestrian chic.

A simple and elegant wood desk with beautiful equestrian leg details, a delicate black chair and a few horse accessories on the bookshelf tie in the equestrian look in a subtle way.

A black Gothic arched doorway and door adds a ton of character and provides a great architecture feature while the red chair lends a pop of color and fun in an otherwise serious space. 

An equestrian space is not complete without the addition of a rustic wooden bar with some cut crystal stemwares, a few bottle of liquors and a few classic equestrian art. 

Displaying an artful vignette on a neutral bookshelf using splashes of bright colors, classic horse head bust, prize ribbons, even a handbag and a few folded throws conjures an interesting mix of equestrian flair.
