Wednesday Wish List – Equestrian Decor

In the last couple of years I have re-visited my love of horses and been bitten by the bug big time.

So much so the equestrian style is slowly creeping its way into my home.

Where better to shop than Ralph Lauren and at the other end of the spectrum, Zara Home.

Latest Projects – Vintage Furniture

As soon as I saw this gorgeous Victorian armchair I knew I had to have it.

It has the most beautiful slender legs and shaped top, a real eye catcher.

I chose Thornback and Peel’s stunning Pigeon and Jelly linen fabric and combined it with a charcoal wool check and hot pink piping.

One of a kind, true statement piece.

Price £895.00

Upholstered in Emily Bond’s lovely Rabbit & Hare linen fabric combined with a beautiful wool check.

Farmhouse pine tables are always in high demand and this lovely example of one sold pretty quickly.

I stripped back the top and gave it a clear wax to bring out the grain of the wood and painted the legs using Autentico’s Nearly Black chalk paint.

Just adore this paint, it has a gorgeous blue hue to the colour which gives the black an almost liquid effect.

Finished it with a clear wax and lightly distressed finish.

A home project using the same paint for my kitchen table.

A commission piece, apologies about the blurred photo.

The drawers were painted using Autentico’s After Rain, a beautiful subtle grey and the side columns were painted with the same colour and mixed with a white paint in order to highlight this feature.
