It’s officially fall and I’m looking forward to sweater weather, colorful fall leaves, crisp frosty mornings, warm teas and ciders, cozy blankets, and earthy autumn smells.
I don’t know about you but when those cooler temperatures and shorter days set in I covet cozy moments in our farmhouse. I’ve put together some luxurious fall finds for the equestrian home.
Here’s a fun little guide to creating a welcoming, cozy, with a little bit of luxury, peaceful, quiet, moment at home.
LIGHT A CANDLE
Marco & Co candles are inspired by the equestrian lifestyle. Their first collection includes aromas that are rich and earthy. The scents include: Mountain Trail Ride, In The Stables, Western Saddle, and Ocean Ride. Everything about these candles say luxury. They are created in Australia and are soy-based, not tested animals, are vegan friendly, and have a burn time of up to 50 hours.
TREAT YOURSELF TO A BIT OF CHOCOLATE ON A BEAUTIFUL TRAY
John Derian creates the most elegant handmade decoupage trays using his collection of 18th and 19th-century prints. His collection of equine trays are simply lovely and a beautiful addition to any home. These trays are handmade in his New York City studio.
Teuscher chocolates of Switzerland have been one of the world’s best for over 80 years! Their chocolate is so rich in flavor and texture so creamy they just melt in your mouth. They’ve been known to make animal chocolates including a horse.
SIP A WARM CUP OF TEA
When there is a chill in the air there is nothing better than a delicious cup of tea. Mariage Freres has 150 years of experience blending magnificent teas. Their tea is perfect for fall with its spicy, fruity aroma.
