CREATE A STABLE AMBIANCE: NOTES TO EQUESTRIFY™ Your Home this Autumn

CREATE A STABLE AMBIANCE: NOTES TO EQUESTRIFY™ Your Home this Autumn

October 24, 2020

fall '20 is about Familiarity

As we transition to Autumn, the stable increasingly evokes a comforting ambiance that is created from distinct moments.  

A few of my favourite memories from the barn include placing a cold hand between a freshly laundered wool cooler and a horse's warm body... The sweet aroma when feeding freshly harvested Northwest apples...Cool rides in Nature's colour palette of filtered golden light.

This fall, more than ever, we are craving familiarity in our lives. Incorporating personal sensory experiences from the stable into our homes can help create this cozy ambiance.  

    

Inspiration

 

01

the aroma of sweet apples

Fragrances create emotional links with memories. In the fall, I begin each morning by lighting a spiced apple cider candle. I started this daily ritual after visiting an exquisite Southern hotel that burned Gardenia candles throughout the day.

02

We are programmed from the time we are babies to seek comfort using a blanket.  This year, as we have spent an unprecedented amount of time inside during uncertain times, I have invested in beautiful washable wool throws for our favourite couches and reading chairs . 

03

nature's golden hues

Lower light has been shown to steady emotions. As the days become shorter, I use lamps with vintage Edison light bulbs and/or natural linen shades to create a warm ambiance that creates a calming influence throughout the home.
