THE CLASSIC EQUESTRIAN COLLECTION



You immediately sense the style. You hear the gentle breeze whistle through the trees. You see the beauty of the fields capturing nature’s vibrant colors from the wildflowers. You smell the deep richness of dark leather as you enter their homes. You feel the softness of woven blankets scattered across chairs and ottomans. You taste nature’s bounty of delicious foods at the trestle table situated in a sun-drenched dining room. These are the layers of living among a finely dressed Equestrian Style home. 


Wouldn’t you just love to give your home the
 sophisticated charm of an English Manor?

"When you think equestrian decor you may think of
 Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky.

However, the first place that comes to my mind is the
 Lone Star State of Texas!


 I recently discovered a brand from Kingsville, Texas called King Ranch.
They are known for their high quality leather goods,

 "They have many pieces that inspire equestrian home decor,
 which is one of my favorites styles.
This particular style of fashion and home accessories can incorporate
 a spectrum from CHIC to CASUAL."


Capture the Equestrian Look and Style



Welcome the morning on the ranch or 
bring on the afternoon naps!


This is where all the day's worries
disappear the minute you walk in the front door...
It's home.........


This is ranch living......
you have put thought and care into every detail
to make your Equestrian lifestyle your dream come true......


Even a Mississippi girl can have a strong affection for horses, including the lifestyle that accompanies those feelings. I fell in love with horses beginning when I was nine years old. My parents would agree that it would be safe to say, I wanted to spend every waking moment at Stockett Stables. My love for them has continued to this day. 


The beauty of the Equestrian Style detail has timeless look......


There is seating with simple detailing
which will encourage your guests to
Sit Back and Relax.


Dress up your favorite chair with an
 equestrian themed accent pillow for fun.


When entertaining outdoors,
accessories can create an atmosphere of celebrations.
Take in the sunset and light the candles.....
Throw some steaks on the grill
and
enjoy good conversations.

Your centerpiece on an equestrian themed table should be dramatic.
 The sky is the limit.
 Perhaps a cluster of trophy cups as vases for fresh flowers.
 Faux stag antler candlesticks add dramatic height.


The Equestrian look can also be
Traditional, with rich woods, overstuffed leather chairs
and rustic lanterns which add the drama!
Start your table treatment with beautiful linens, 
like a rich plaid or paisley tablecloth and crisp white linen napkins.
Think of using trays as chargers when dressing a table for a dinner party 
because they do a masterful job of grounding 
each place setting and lending them an air of distinction.



The Gentleman's Bar accessories........


There can be a space for everyone....
toward the more feminine tastes....
cream mixed with the richness of softer lines and fabrics
will be a room to showcase your treasured heirlooms...........


The Master.......
Supremely soft and layered bedding....
everything to keep you comfortable for all seasons.

Bring in a wonderful mix of menswear fabrics,
 weaving them into bedding ensembles, 
 upholstered furnishings and the window and floor coverings.

The Spring and Summer months
are the peak times for weddings!
There is nothing more beautiful than a Ranch-Style Reception!


When you choose your perfect companion in life,......


The perfect pair can have dozens of possibilities........

Just hear those jingle bells ring come December......

Decking the halls this Christmas season 
is sure to captivate the equestrian heart. 
Depending on your fancy, you can showcase this timeless look from
 classic to whimsical!



Life happens fast....
it's never to early to think about the holidays
and
pulling together a beautiful Equestrian themed Christmas tree!

So...that's my dream......
I hope you found some inspiration as I certainly did.
