Interior design and its love of "The Equine"!

 With all the talk about War Horse, I decided to pick up the book and read it prior to viewing the movie.It was a short and wonderful read.. with painful reminders of the sacrifices these wonderful horses have made for us humans!  I am deeply moved, primarily because I own one of these majestic animals.. although at times he does try us!!   I also started thinking about how horses have entered our homes, not literally but rather through our shear love at looking at them. Thus, the horse has played an intricate part in interior design.  I have posted examples of how designers have used this great animal to create a fabulous space, with links to certain sites that can help you bring a little "equus" into your life!
