The Brentwood Hotel in Saratoga Springs, New York is found on the grounds of Saratoga’s famous racetrack. With equestrian-inspired, dark interior trim and framed paintings of country scenes, the hotel offers perfect Fall decor inspiration. The hotel was designed by Brooklyn-based Studio Tack, the same team behind some of our favorite hotel interiors, from Scribner’s Catskill Lodge to Sound View in New York’s North Fork to The Coachman in Lake Tahoe and the Anvil Hotel in Wyoming. Here are seven ideas to borrow, whether or not you’re able to book an autumn stay.

1. Meet board and batten, the stable version of shiplap.
Above: Taking cues from the location on the grounds of Saratoga’s famous race track, Studio Tack (who are also the hotel’s owners) revamped the former motor lodge’s exterior with board and batten cladding, evocative of horse stables. The gravel courtyard that leads to the 12 well-appointed guest rooms was designed by landscape firm New Dimensions.
2. Paint cladding high-gloss black.

3. Criss-cross rooms in dark trim.
4. Hang flea-market paintings front and center.
Above: At Brentwood, vintage, mix-and-match paintings of horses and pastoral scenes (many of which the team found at the Brimfield antiques fair) are brought down from the proverbial attic and hung above the bed. Also pictured: the darkly dramatic bathrooms.
5. Rethink old-school sconces.
6. Add a touch of glam to small details.

7. Bring back the folding camp stool.
