Anyone can decorate with horse bedroom decor. These majestic creatures are loved by people of all ages and genders. You just need to find the style that appeals to you.
Styles of Horse Bedroom Decor
A horse theme can work for children or adults. You just need to have the appropriate style for a girl's room, a boy's room or an adult's room. Take a look at some of the following examples to get a better idea.
Babies & Toddlers
Jo Jo Designs has horse crib bedding for babies and toddlers with images of prancing ponies and wild west cowgirls and cowboys. The nine piece crib bedding sets come with multiple accessories including a blanket, crib bumper, crib skirt, fitted sheet, diaper stacker, throw pillow and two window valances.
The horse toddler bedding has the same type of designs as the crib bedding. The five piece toddler sets come with a comforter, pillow sham, pillowcase, fitted sheet and flat sheet.
Extra horse theme accessories you can buy include a wall border, laundry hamper, wall hanging accessories, fabric bulletin board, lamp shade, window panels and valance.
Rosenberry Rooms has dozens of different kids horse theme decor items for a child's bedroom. Horse decor you can find here includes lots of horse wall art, drawer pulls, bedding, rocking horses, wall borders, clocks, peel and stick appliques and wall murals, decorative pillows, lamps and hangers.
At Etsy, you can find even more great horse accessories for kids' rooms such as lounge pillows, horse puzzles, decorative throws, magnets and horse music boxes. Even though many of the items are targeted for girls, many work equally well for boys' rooms.
You can find everything an adult horse lover would need for an equestrian style bedroom at Back in the Saddle. Realistic-looking horses and more kid-oriented designs are displayed on their fairly large selection of bedding sets.
In addition to their adult horse bedding, Back in the Saddle has decorative horse throws that make great sofa and chair covers. Add a few decorative horse pillows and you've got a great new look for the other furniture in your home. These horse throws would make a great wall tapestry. This company also carries horse wall clocks, wall decor and beautiful horse sculptures.
Genuine Horse Accessories
If you are lucky enough to live in the country and have horses nearby, you might have things laying around the stable or barn that could be made into decorative accents for your bedroom.
If you have any old horseshoes lying around, they make great wall decor, as do old spurs. You could also use old horseshoes to make picture frames. You could take an old feed bucket and make a great dried arrangement in it. An old antique saddle would make a nice display. An old horse blanket would make a nice wall tapestry.
A collection of old bridle mouth bits would make an interesting grouping on the wall. Other items you could use as wall decor include old bull whips and old ropes.
You can make a lot of the interesting decor out of old barbed wire. You have to be extra careful when working with barbed wire so make sure you have a pair of heavy duty work gloves. You can make interesting candleholders, picture frames and baskets by wrapping barbed wire around them.
Distinguished Horse Themes
You can narrow down your horse decorating theme into more specific equestrian themes such as:
- Thoroughbred horse racing
- Wild mustangs
- Horse jumping
- Cutting horses
- Native American horses
- Different horse breeds
- Winged horses
Focusing on a specific type of horse theme may help you narrow down decorating elements such as colors and designs and textures. For instance, if you went with a Native American type horse theme, your decor would reflect a lot of natural earth tone colors and geometric designs.
A little girl might choose the fantasy or mythical type horse such as unicorns and winged horses. The colors in this type of a theme would tend to be more feminine like pink, purple, white and rainbow colors.
Design for All Ages
A horse bedroom decor theme is one you never have to outgrow if you don't want to. All you need is a love and passion for horses.
