Alexandra Lauren Designs helps a seasoned equestrian feel at home in this classically
This Happy Valley Home is an Ode to Timeless Sophistication

One quick glance around the living room and two deductions can immediately be made about the homeowner – that he plays polo and that he’s from the UK.
The giveaways are the polo mallets, riding gear and old illustrations of polo players hanging on the walls, along with a bookshelf filled with reads on Margaret Thatcher and the British Empire.The various equestrian accoutrements don’t look out of place in this apartment – in fact, they add to the overall Ralph Lauren-esque feel of the home. Panelled wallsare painted in a soft, silver-blue shade, complemented by hardwood parquet flooring, vintage brass hardware, a classic, leather wingback armchair and a large, comfortable sofa that you can really sink into.
