This Chic Horse Trailer is an Equestrian's Dream
We’re firm believers that there’s no limit to what can be transformed with good design. On top of that, we also believe that any place where you spend your time should be one that you love to look at. So we were super excited when Decorist Elite designer Simone Howell was recently featured on the popular design site, Design Sponge, with her makeover of a chic horse trailer. Bohemian and collected and loaded with color and texture, the interior and exterior of the trailer was everything we've come to love about Simone's eclectic style.
And if you love Simone as much as we do, then you know that she never ceases to amaze us with her uncanny ability to weave in new trends with vintage finds in a distinct and unexpected way. She's the master at transforming a room into an eclectic yet approachable space whether it's a family room, bedroom, home office—or her own daughter, Avery's horse trailer! And this recent pet project (no pun intended!) was to serve as a chic refuge while she and Avery are on the road traveling between horse show and barrel racing competitions. Needless to say, she wins a blue ribbon in our book!
Born in the England, raised in New York and California, Simone is currently high heeling her way through life in Dallas, TX. She likes to say, "We ride horses and design interiors. The horses eat hay and run around barrels as fast as they can and I'm an Elite designer for Decorist."
Moving to Dallas four years ago was a big adjustment for Simone and her family but now they're loving every minute. Her oldest daughter transitioned from dance to cheer (as football reigns king in Texas) and her younger daughter, Avery, began riding horses (another popular Texan pastime). Avery has become a competitive barrel racer and with it their time at the barn and on the road has become a way of life.
Having somewhere to relax and unwind during competitions became a necessity for Simone. Given her innate sourcing and scouting abilities, she found a little old horse trailer small enough to tow and just ripe for a design redux.
Simone began to create concept boards like she does with all her Decorist clients, only this time it was for her 15-year-old daughter. “Avery tends to love all things Texas, rodeo and rustic and I lean more toward modern, white and vintage. We worked together to strike the perfect balance of young, hip AND country!"
Teaming up with Decorist has meant that Simone is able to work with clients from all over the country to bring her bold style to their home—or to their pet projects. Designing rooms that are beautiful as well as functional where people can live in, grow in and feel a connection is what Simone does best!
