Horses and modern style get along very well. On Amazon and Ali-express we can find beautiful modern paintings of horses with great color. There we can find beautiful impressions that favor style over originality.

“But not only horses does man live…” and that’s why Lincy also has a wide range of topics from religious art, other animals and celebrities.

Classic Style for Horse Lovers
When we talk about a classic style we can talk so much about somewhat more realistic paintings of horses. But we can also talk about materials and colors that make an equestrian atmosphere feel. The wood in addition to being a very noble and elegant material is ideal to reflect an equestrian style. Thus we can also incorporate the use of leather that is typical in riders’ boots and on frames.
The paintings are also more neutral in color. For a decoration for lovers of classic horses we will see the predominance of certain colors. Brown, black, grey and white colors will predominate, joined by dark blue colors. The latter is a typical color of equestrian uniforms and accessories. A sober color that goes very well with the rest, in the search for more natural colors and pointing to the sobriety and elegance that the horse symbolizes.
Within the classic style you can also add to the decoration some very realistic equestrian sculptures to give depth to the decoration. Black or wrought iron are an excellent choice for such sculptures ranging from the slightly rustic to the classic.
Western style for decoration for horse lover
Finally, we can find that western style. The latter does not directly evoke the horse, but to an era where the horse was the king of transport. Whether riding with a mount, hair or in a horse-drawn carriage, the horse was indispensable in the old west.
No doubt the western style is full of toying and nostalgia for times when the bad and the good could be easily differentiated. Here the typical elements of the old west such as the lounge doors, horseshoes, mounts and some riding tools will be fundamental.
Lounge doors can be used to highlight that you enter a place with that western style, if this style does not predominate in all environments. Whether the kitchen or the house bar are the perfect place to transform them with the use of aged wood. Place elements that give life to the fantasy of time travel in cowboy times. A horseshoe is essential, but several would be ideal. One or more saddles around the bar would make it a portal to travel back in time.
Finally, there should be no missing pictures of horses, animal skins (obtained animal-friendlyly) and a couple of hats for our guests to live the full experience.
No doubt your friends won’t hesitate to visit you to get back in time.
Color palette in decoration for horse lovers
In decoration one of the fundamental elements is the palette of colors to select. As we could see in the previous sections, the color palette also depends on the selected style.
In this aspect we can highlight that a modern decoration will lean towards abstract or impressionist designs. In this case the palette is almost unlimited since imagination is the limit. However, in this case vivid colors are also preferred to convey a sense of surrealism or hyperrealism in articles and images of horses.
That is why we see horses with red and yellow colors. These more to do with the colors of horses have to do with the intensity and emotions that a horse transmits.
We can also find a contrast in the works of art with the color white. This color is non-existent in nature, but it also seeks to represent the peaceful nature of the horse. Without a doubt, color not only has the function of representing but also of transmitting.
The color palette in classic styles
In the case of the color palette in the classic and western styles they fulfill a more representative function. The classic character leans towards colors compatible with traditional decoration, using white, black and earth colors fundamentally. This is compatible with the normal decoration of a house. You can also see touches of blue and green in the realistic representations in landscape paintings with horses.
Perhaps in the classical style there is more freedom in terms of the style of the decoration and the colors. This decoration for horse lovers does not seek to represent any particular environment. What it seeks is to represent a room or a space of the house that has decorative representations with horse motifs. There we could find paintings, small or medium sculptures and some other decoration motif based on the equestrian style.
The classic style is the most “lukewarm” because it can be a generic style adding touches that reflect the love for horses. It does not imply commitment to the horse or to the colors. It is a way to integrate the horse into the normality of the day to day.
The color palette in the western style in decoration for horse lovers
On the contrary, the western style is the strictest, because it seeks to reproduce the old west in our common spaces. The use of typical materials such as leather and wood are key to achieving this reproduction.
You can also use fabrics of saddlebags, spurs, horseshoes, and metal appliques related to that time. Some posters related to the village bar, or the police station are never too many. In that style of decoration, you cannot miss the typical swing door of the west bar.
Without a doubt this is the true decoration of a horse lover. This seeks to represent the universe of one of the most representative moments of the horse both in history and in popular culture.
In the Western style the brown and earthy colors are the representation of desert, wood, dust and dried plants.
The commitment required by western décor really is admirable. Contrary to the classic style this reflects in house detail his love for a time when horses were man’s best friends, whether masked heroes or villains.
