I've been seeing a lot of equestrian accents in homes lately, and I don't mean cowboys and Indians. From ceramic bookends to horse head hooks, horsing around with your decorating can be chic and modern. Take a cue from the green ceramic Trojan horses in The Bachelorette mansion and use them sparingly in an accent color to keep the look fresh. Or create a monochromatic vignette that includes a white horse figurine and assorted white vases. See my picks below! Have you used horse sculptures in your home's vignettes?

If you know me, you know I adore my horses. The equestrian loves of my life are gentle giants that always leave me in awe. Since I can't exactly fit a farm into my city abode, I figure the next best option is to dress up my home with some stylish stallion accents. Come check out the steed selection for this week's edition of Etsy Finds.

For this challenge, I'd like you to tell me how you'd use this cart in your home. Would you up its kitsch factor with more equine-themed accents? Would you repaint it? What room would it look best in? Would it work for a children's playroom? What would you store on it? Tell me in the comments below!
I think many of us may have had horsey obsessions growing up. I, for one, was hooked on Elizabeth Taylor in her role as Velvet Brown in the fabulous '40s film National Velvet. The good news is, we don't have to give up the horse love just because we've grown up. In fact, the design world has been inundated with equestrian-inspired accents and décor.
Lately, I've been seeing equestrian accents popping up on everything, from snaffle bit-enhanced purses to horsehead lamps. Check out my favorite home picks for this trend.
