Pinto Pony Designs



After having moved to a tiny town in the country, I have been so pleased to find that there are some great places to shop. One of my new favorites is the Pinto Pony home decor and gift shop. 

Pinto Pony is located on Main Street in Heber, Utah and makes its home in a charming old brick house built in 1895.

Each room is chock full of decor items including tabletop and kitchen items,  


 kilim and dhurrie rugs, 

 unique florals,



 furniture, 

lighting, 

 lots of fun pillows,  



and even some fun clothing and fashion accessories.


Their style definitely leans towards rustic mountain and western influences. Perfect for the beautiful Wasatch Back area. The owners also offer interior design services. It's a fun shop to browse in and find something new!

Check them out at

Door Decisions




Your front door says a lot about your home. It's the first impression visitors get when they come to call and it should appear welcoming and inviting. It also reflects the style of your home whether that's traditional or contemporary. We are building a European style home in the mountains of Utah and I need to choose my new front door.
I wanted something like this with windows flanking the side but my builder says the front entry is not wide enough for that.


He suggested a door with a transom window over the top to let in some natural light but I think the proportion looks awkward.

I like this look, but it may be too Mission style-ish  for the rest of the house.

This door with lots of glass is pretty. What do you think about privacy? Does it bother you when visitors can see right into the house? 

The details on this door are beautiful.

 I am clearly drawn to arched doors!

This is quite rustic but I kind of like the antique feel.

 I love the round window but my husband says it looks too"hobbit-y".
  

 I could go for some lovely iron scroll work.

I think this is my favorite with the diamond shaped leaded glass.

What are your thoughts? Which door looks the most inviting to you ?
