~a new trend?~

~wild horses~
they are popping up everywhere,
and not just in pastures,
but on walls of gorgeous homes!And I LOVE how they look, especially the black and white ones!

This one takes up an entire wall!


I love this photo the most I think.
An almost all white interior with graphic pops of color!

all photos moss eclectic

Oh, I love this. It's just a touch of country without going too far. I will continue my undying love for birds......which I insist I started trending years ago when I created my son's nursery a la Anthropologie's first crop of sparrows. :)

Love this! Hubby bought me a very large giclee from Ballards when my horse passed. I have it front and center above my mantle along with my saddle and bridle in the room. Love it!

I use to go horseback riding as a little girl up in New York State. Ive collected horse photos and have a wonderful Italian tapesty with a beautiful black horse on it. I have seen this trend grow and Im loving it.

I don't like horses...personally. Like in person. But, I love when people decorate w/them. I was at our local ReStore store the other day and they had horse riding trophies...i should've grabbed them!!

I think horses are one of the most beautiful animals on Earth. The last room is stunning.

A different kind of Wild Horses- By the Rolling Stones- a true classic. Ahhhh...such sweet memories with that song. :)
(Your so young you probably don't know what in the heck I'm talking about.)

Being a horse gal of course I love these! I think the Pioneer woman frames a lot of her wild mustang photos.

Meg said...

I've noticed that as well and the pictures are WAY cooler than Horse pictures that I've seen in the past. I like.

Willow said...

Hello! I frequent your blog and love it. I believe all those horse photos are by one photographer. There was a documentary about how he took the photos. You can see more of the photos and the documentary here:

Enjoy!

I too am jumping on the wild horses wagon! We recently purchased some art which is going to take up our entire lounge room wall, of Australian bush brumbies, go here to see it: http://www.ellaatbella.com/2010/12/start-of-something-big.html
Hopefully will take delivery soon and have some shots of it actually in our home :)
