    I would prop it on my stone fireplace mantel in our livingroom where it would be the main focal point. I am a lover of horses and vintage items. It would look just perfect there.

    I love my master bedroom but right now I have a painting over my bed which was done by a friend. I would love an excuse to remove it!

    What a great vintage hunt print. It would be darling in my folks vacation vintage rustic lodge home in The Great Smoky Mountains. It would look best in the living room which has a huge picture window with a view of the mountains, a small waterfall, and rushing creek. The room is warm and cozy with antique wormy chestnut walls and a large rock fireplace. The rocks were gathered from the Little Tennessee River. The living room has accent colors of Forrest green, yellow, small touches of red, but mostly natural neutral color pallet.

    First, where I WOULDN’T hang it: the bathroom. This print is way too awesome for that. And I wouldn’t put in our main bedroom, because oddly enough there probably isn’t a wall space big enough for it (we have built-ins).

    So, clearly the best place would be the living room: it is the place we spend the most time — both with the household members and guests — so everyone could enjoy it; it would be out of the reach of the cats, more or less, so it has a great shot at survival; and it would go tremendously well with the current decor of the room. And as a massive bonus, it would mean I would be able — once and for all — to ensure that my boyfriend doesn’t get his way and make good on his “threat” to put his favorite football team’s stadium print in the room. Please help ensure this design travesty doesn’t come to pass!

    As a history teacher and daughter of a rancher, the nostalgic feeling of this print lends itself to both and would be lovely in my dining room.

    I would hang on the wall in our living room right above the sofa. It would be most definitely, the focal point of the room

    I think I can find a nice spot for it along my up stair hallway wall.

    August 21, 2015 at 9:10 pm
  12. Megan

    I would hang it on the wall opposite my bed, so that it would be the last thing I see at night and the first thing I see in the morning.

    Our family lives in Lexington, so what better way to give a nod to Horse Country than by hanging the print front and center in our sitting room?

    August 21, 2015 at 8:46 pm
  14. Vicki Hopper

    In the living room.

    August 21, 2015 at 8:24 pm
  15. Jacquelyn Dougherty

    That’s hard to choose. I would either hang it in my basement family room which has a cozy, vintage lodge feel to it or in my husband’s office which has light coffee colored walls and beautiful white moldings. It would look perfect in both places!

    August 21, 2015 at 8:23 pm
  16. Isabel

    I would hang it in my windowed foyer on a neutral wall with heart pine ceilings and an amber light fixture over head.

    August 21, 2015 at 7:42 pm
  17. Michelle Barrett

    I would hang it in my living room

    August 21, 2015 at 5:53 pm
  18. Jan Waters

    I would honor it on my wall in my main Polar.

    August 21, 2015 at 5:04 pm
  19. Griffin Nelson

    I would definitely have to hang this in my living room with the a few other vintage pictures, prints, and tapestries! It would be absolutely stunning! The curtains in the room are an artichoke green that would balance it perfectly. My home decor definitely falls in the category of vintage with decorative pillows made of old quilts, French pitchers, and other beautiful items that would only help to make this part of the centerpiece of the room!

    I have a comfy chair in the corner of my “library dining room”, a room adorned with antique Duncan Phyfe style dining furniture, with Spode Foxhunting china on display, and books filling built in shelving along one entire wall. The sunlight comes in through the floor-to-ceiling windows all morning and into the late afternoon, and I sit in my chair and work. There is an empty nail on the wall above the chair where a painting used to reside when it used to be a child’s nursery. The wall, quite frankly, needs a beautiful piece of art. I am a lover of horses and of all things that speak to history and heritage. I myself have owned several thoroughbred racehorses, as pictured. I could think of nothing better to have next to me while I go about my daily work.

    We’re both history buffs and this vintage print would look great on the wall in our entry way. It would keep company with some family photos from the early 1900s and some old maps that we have framed.

    MY son has an office that this would look fantastic in. I would gladly give it to him.

    We are in the process of redecorating our living room. This print would look wonderful hanging over one of our new “tobacco” colored leather Chesterfield chairs.

    August 21, 2015 at 1:45 pm
  24. Andrew

    I have a print of the legendary Arkansas Traveler riding in on a horse. This print would complement this in our living room well.

    August 21, 2015 at 12:43 pm
  25. Glenda Terrell

    This print is a perfect fit for behind my leather sofa in the family room. It really ups the cozy factor.

    August 21, 2015 at 12:23 pm
  26. Glenda Terrell

    This print would go perfectly over my leather couch in my family room. It coordinates with the existing brown leather of the couch and red brick of the fireplace while bringing brighter complements of golds and blue greens. It’ll be a delightful update.

    WELL HELLO GORGEOUS! I am so drawn to anything equestrian and have been collecting this exact sort of print for years. This print made me catch my breath the moment I saw it. This beauty would definitely be placed front and center, where it was intended to be from the moment it was created. above the fireplace mantel in our living room for all to admire.

    August 21, 2015 at 12:15 pm
  28. Lynn Welch

    I would hang this print above the simple huntboard my dad made for my dining room; the print’s subdued tones are a perfect complement to my color scheme. I love that the subject matter pays homage to one aspect of the importance of horses in Southern culture.

    August 21, 2015 at 12:11 pm
  29. Cheryl Andrews

    I love the look of vintage prints! This print would be placed in my living room where it would become the focal point of the room. I would be thrilled to win this print!

    I’d hang it in my living room which looks out on my neighbor’s white-fenced horse pasture and barn. My living room has comfy, leather sofas and gentrified country decor. (‘My nod to my southern roots.) The lovely print’s muted tones would work great with my color scheme. ‘Love the subject matter.

    I would hang this vintage print in my husband’s office above a shelf with classic horse racing trophies. Next to this beautiful piece of artwork, I’d hang a framed antique music sheet with the lyrics to “My Old Kentucky Home.” After everything was in it’s proper place, I’d make myself a mint julep, put on some bluegrass music, sit down and admire the decor!

    August 21, 2015 at 10:31 am
  32. Kathy

    I would put it in the office on the wall where sunlight does not hit so it wouldn’t fade.

    August 21, 2015 at 10:24 am
  33. Barbara Marta

    Strong Wood, Gold Or Silver Wood Frame Would Formalize The Print . I Would Hang On A Long Foyer Wall, Stairwell , Or Under The Stairs With A Color Coordinated Chair Or Small Chest. Heirloom Piece And A Frame Wide Frame Would Make Print A Statement Piece As Such A Print Should Be. Thank You

    I think this would be beautiful hanging in a gentleman’s office/study. Since I don’t have one, I would use this as the inspiration to decorate a spare bedroom around.

    I wish the colors of the piece were more clearly visible; but, given the subject and scale, over the living room fireplace(flat-panel televisions never look good there), flanked by two-story windows overlooking a hayfield and red barn in the distance, would have the best feel and impact. The adjacent large free second story wall would also work well, as a place to develop a combination of “gallery-hung” pieces with farming and other rural scenes–particularly ones that show a juxtaposition of mountains and water like the old home country( Botetourt and Alleghany Counties, or Scottish lochs, for that matter).

  36. Kathleen

    Actually, I would give this to my son as a gift. He lives in a 18th century, stone house & this would look lovely hanging on his wall.

    August 21, 2015 at 9:25 am
  37. Julia R

    I would hang this vintage print in our sitting room/study. It would be beautiful!
