{home inspiration: horse show ribbons}

Always love discovering new and creative ways to display collections. Here, adding a dash of the Equestrian Style to a room can be as simple as an artful arrangement of horse show ribbons and Equestrian awards tacked to the wall for a cool and casual look {above}, or beautifully framed above a table of awards and trophies for an elegant and winning presentation {below}.

I can't believe those are so, so alluring! They're equestrian (COOL), they're pastel (COOLER) and so, so stylish (AWESOME!)

You know a while ago I was doing a party and I wanted to get some of these customised - could I find anywhere to do them? No! Tried making the myself but just not the same ... love them used here, great find xx

I only remember seeing them in bright red, green and black.. never thought of them being beautiful. Now I take that back. They are beautiful. Decorating worthy.

How charming! Having never won any ribbons, I would never have thought of this.

thrilled by the thought [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

What a cute way to frame the ribbons! It looks really lovely.

I love the ribbons mounted on the picture frames. It's very elegant - all the ribbons I have are from swimming though, and the colors are not at all pretty like these!

Sacheverelle [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I wouldn't want to display anything other than blues, reds or yellows. Getting 4th place or less in a horse show isn't that great tho I guess sometimes it's an accomplishment if you placed at all, maybe at Devon.

really beautiful...traditional and elegant!

Joanna Goddard [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

the horses on the bottom are so rad!

milly [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

TOO FUNNY, I used to ride horses and had a million of these that I threw away. What was I thinking?? They did smell though. HAHA

That first photo is elegant. Who know that ribbons came in such lovely colors? Maybe they will bring pastel dreams.

Tara Diane [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

My friend used to be really into showing horses and her room looked exactly like the first picture, haha.

What a sweet idea! If only I had thought of this years ago when I had plastered the walls of my room with my years awards!

parallel-botany [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Ooo, very pretty! I especially love the first picture. The faded pastels are so lovely.

Artificial Swedener [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I have to agree with Sacheverelle. Although I think the pastel ribbons look lovely, my first thought as an equestrian was, "Hmmm, those ribbons are for like 5th through 7th places." Maybe we can lobby the American Horse Show Association to move from blue, red and yellow to more displayable :)
