Equestrian-Inspired Spaces

And they're off!

Nothing gets my heart pounding faster than cheering on my chosen horse in the Kentucky Derby every year. I have an undying love for this event that stems from my years of horseback riding growing up. Fun fact: I really wanted to be a professional jockey for awhile... unfortunately, those career aspirations faded away by about 9th grade, since I was already 5'8". Oh well. :) I did compete on my high school's equestrian team though, so I guess that makes up for it? Ok, maybe not quite the equivalent. I never lost interest in the Derby though, and every year, the first Saturday in May revolves around that two-minute horse race.

In honor of the 139th Run for the Roses, I thought I'd round up a few of my favorite equestrian-inspired spaces. I think of this style as classic with a touch of utilitarian, worn-in/rustic, and comfortable. It leans towards farmhouse, maybe? Let's take a tour of my take on equestrian-inspired decor.









Man, collecting these photos sure made me miss my days of horseback riding. Maybe one day I'll have a chance to get back into it.

Anyone going to or hosting a Derby party this weekend? I'll definitely be making some mint juleps in honor of the race and placing some friendly bets on who I think will be the winning horse!

  2. كيفية لمكافحة البراغيث: من الأساليب المستخدمة لمكافحة حشرات البيت التي يكثر وجودها في الأماكن المقفلة والتي لا تتعرض للتيارات الهووائية كالبراغيث أن نضع اعداد من أوراق الريحان الجافة في قطعةٍ من الشاش، ثم نضعها في المقر الذي تتواجد
    فيه تلك الحشرة، بعدها يتم تهوية الحجرة ويُفضل تعريضها لأشعة الشمس.
    أسلوب لمكافحة النمل: من الوسائل الطبيعية المستخدمة في مكافحة حشرات البيت أن نقوم بتقشير الخيار ونضع اعداد مناسبة من ذلك القشر في الأماكن التي يتنشر فيها النمل وسيتم التخلص منها لأنّ قشر الخيار من المواد السامة لحشرة النمل.
    أسلوب لمكافحة الصراصير: نحضر اعداد من الطحين أو السكر ونخلطه مع مسحوق حمض البوريك ونضعه في الحجرة التي تتواجد فيها الصراصير وستأتي تلك الحشرة لتأكل من ذلك الخليط ثم سوف يتم التخلص منها بتصرف حمض البوريك، ويجب أن نقوم بتلك الخطوة لفترة أسبوعين كاملين لمكافحة جميع الصراصير، كما يمكن بخ تلك الحشرات بمزيجٍ من الصابون والماء.

  4. Leakage in water is its exit from somewhere in the water lines as a result of a malfunction, rotting or corrosion of the water connection line (such as plumbing extensions in homes called pipes or tubes), as the defect may result from a blockage in the lines due to salts that corrode the line or as a result of pressure On the pipes with a heavy thing or as a result of hot water from the heaters in the cold winter weather may work on a crack in one of the internal plumbing lines and here a problem arose and we did not know about it as a homeowner because the crack has occurred inside the walls or the bottom of the floors and the leakage continues through the crack throughout the period of the defect and after

If you already have a wristwatch, check out the color of the face. If it's silver, shop men's bracelets that have silver in them as opposed to gold; if the watch face is colored, find some men's bracelets that have the same tone. Then, combine it together for an effortless masterpiece.

    If you don't have a luxury wristwatch, now is the time to get one. Not only are they incredibly practical, but they'll enhance your dapper wardrobe within seconds - pun intended. While you can layer your wrist with all kinds of men's bracelets, adding a wristwatch will separate the styles and add dimension into the look.

  6. Concrete barrier blocks or jersey barriers are a simple and effective way to secure your empty premises against unwelcome visits from trespassers, vandals, fly tippers and travellers. Concrete security barriers may be placed across the access to a property, or around the perimeter to block vehicular access. We provide concrete sleepers in either 1.5m, 2.5m or 3m lengths, which can be bolted together with our state of the art interlocking system to create a virtually impenetrable concrete barrier.

    Temporary concrete road barriers are a useful tool in traffic management, to safely control traffic flows. Concrete safety barriers are a common sight in car parks, used to define entry and exit lanes and to protect traffic from straying into oncoming lanes. Concrete road barriers may be used to secure building sites and road works, protecting both the passing public and workforce within.
