Once upon a time, the very thought of wallpaper evoked images of dank rooms, peeling corners, and hideous floral patterns that even your grandmother’s grandmother couldn’t love. However, this once defunct element of décor has been back en vogue for almost a decade, and what began as the rebirth of a basic nautical stripe has materialized into an infinite number of statement-making styles. From simple grasscloth to bold geometric patterns, there is an option for every aesthetic, including – you guessed it – the equestrian enthusiast.
When it comes to equine-centric wallpaper options, there is no shortage of foxhunt-themed, red-coated riders Tally-Hoing as they chase a pack of hounds over stonewalls and across lush green fields. Despite the inherent movement within, this aesthetic can seem a bit stiff…like Bitsy sipping a frosty martini with cocktail onions in the library after her tennis match. For a similarly opulent but entirely updated version of equestrian-themed décor, the Horse & Tassel Wallpaper by Katie Kime is rooted in classic elegance but with a dose of contemporary simplicity…like a bellini savored with friends after a raucous game of bocce. It is exactly the shot of modernity that a stylish equestrian’s dwelling deserves.
(Redecorating not on the agenda this season? Not to worry. The Horse & Tassel print is available on tea towels, pajamas, giftwrap, and women’s apparel.)
