"Giddy Up . . . "

I received an email last week - asking if I would be available to design the interiors of a home - but, not just any ol' home.  But, a horse farm.  

Would I like to come out and have a look at the property?  Why, yes.  I'd love to.

My daughter was an equestrian - for UC Davis and afterwards, until she broke her back from a fall off her horse. I loved finding vintage horse themed treasures for her home, but now not so much.
Can't wait to see what you do with an equestrian theme.
I know it's going to be fabulous! BTW, those boots in that photo with the portrait--oh my God, I love them!

Congrats Scot! Looking forward to seeing the end result. Great photos, and agree with vignette design.....great boots! (And very sad to hear about her daughter!)

Wow, what a great project. We are horse people here in CT. I love that living room you posted #7. The bones of that room are very similar to my home...hmmmm ideas, ideas.

Can't wait to see the finished product on this job. Good luck.

How exciting! I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of your work on the horse farm.

Fabulous fun! I've always been a horse girl. Pictures of them covered my walls as a child ... begged my parents for one literally everyday until they finally succumbed when I was in high school. Got myself a pretty Tennessee Walker with the white face and fancy step ... I no longer have that horse, as I've long ago moved away from home and my parents sold and moved south, but I still go riding every fall. Love to hear how your project turns out. ;)

Wow sounds amazing! The pics are such a tease, one more elegant and beautiful than the previous one. As a former rider, this is what makes me tick and gets me very excited!! Designing a horse farm? AMAZING!!!! Cannot wait to hear more more more. As a new follower, you better believe I will be back.
Stop by..last night to be eligible for my Kilim bench giveaway!

I'll introduce you to Susan at Shandells (@Shandells) who is a horse person that also makes the most exquisite hand made lampshades! She has a pair of horse lamps perfect for your new project!!

A Veranda feature, some years ago, with interior design by Jean Keller Huff was an all time favorite of mine and was owned by equestrian physicians...I still have the images. Can't wait to see what magic you do for your clients.

Sarah said...

What fun this will be. I'll be eager to see photos of this one. You should visit Alison at Polohouse for more inspiration. Do you know her blog? Amazing! ~ sarah

WOW!!! Can hardly wait to see the end result.

My friend Amy told me to stop by. Great post. You can never have enough horses around you.

Atherton.......just ask someone if they know anyone named "Bianchi"!!

My husband's divine brother and his divine wife live in Atherton....and my husband's divine sister and her divine husband live in Woodside.....right next door....their last name is "Stent" drop those names.....
Maybe they will be a "klunk" (I always say "klunk" when I drop names) or no.....but.....you might meet some interesting people......Atherton and Woodside are lovely places........full of interesting houses and people!!

You are a delightful person......thanks to the darling Diane Dorrans Saeks......I found your wonderful blog!
