Interior designer Patrick Lönn creates sophisticated spaces in which you can still relax. Such is the case with his equestrian study in the Hamptons Designer Show House this year. He said this luxurious room was inspired by the recent move of his horse to Lionshare Farm in Greenwich, Connecticut and even included his own Hermes saddle. Other equestrian items include the saddle stitch on the leather upholstery and trompe l'oeil ceiling panels created to look like Hermes scarves. Patrick said the artwork was also an important element in the room. He chose dramatic photographs of horses in motion by Bob Tabor. I especially loved the Tang Dynasty horse from Illiad Antiques. It's definitely a chic room but you also feel like you could lie down and take a nap on that fabulous sofa. It also just goes to show that neutrals don't have to be boring. But then again, I couldn't image Patrick Lönn ever designing a boring room!
