Horse Inspired Decorating

I've noticed a huge trend in using horses in upscale decor - especially paintings, sculptures, and statuesMany of the designer showhomes I have toured this year have had some sort of horse 'art' - usually a very large painting that is the focal point of the room.

It made me realize that horses do not necessarily have to equal ranch style. You can incorporate horses (or really any animal) into any decor be it modern or traditional. 

Look at these chic horse decor ideas below! Be sure to visit these stores to see these items in person - so fabulous! And tell them you saw it on The Red Vault.
