Amanda Brooks is one of our favorite equestrian style icons, so we were so excited to find a beautiful feature of her family and Oxfordshire home on The Selby.

Spring is in the air and we're ready to open our windows, clean out our closets, and prep our homes for warmer weather. At OS, we love a minimal, crisp space that still feels like somewhere you'd like to spend an afternoon reading a book or flipping through a favorite magazine. To us, this is modern equestrian style.
