My horseback riding trainer, Allison, asked if I could help her style a cozy townhouse she’s moving into before she travels to Belgium to ride this summer. Of course I said yes. It’s just a six month home, so we’ll be keeping the budget slim. But we certainly don’t have to sacrifice style!
When I tried to think of inspiring images to send Allison in order to feel out her style, I immediately thought of Windsor Smith with her equestrian inspired interiors. Windsor’s elegant and timeless design approach fits the bill for this project.
Allison has a unique collection of artwork from her travels, so I can easily picture us doing a simple gallery wall.
I can also picture using a soft blue tone on her walls in one room.
Perhaps blue walls in her office area. Pretend this is a desk instead of a vanity in a fabulous bathroom. Or just enjoy looking at this fabulous bathroom.
Her kitchen has black granite countertops, so I can imagine bringing in some modern white to offset the dark. Stacks of white dishes, maybe a graphic runner in the kitchen.
I haven’t seen her space in person yet, so this is me just thinking out loud. I’ll keep you posted on our progress.
Giddy up – the weekend has finally arrived!
