The Dogs of Design

Have you noticed how often dogs are popping up in interior design photos lately?  I’m seeing so many pictures of adorable pooches in their beautiful homes and I love how much life they add to the images.


Check out this cutie-pie on his owner’s very eye catching staircase.




And this guy – I’m thinking he owns this spot.


It’s highly possible that this is one pampered Poodle, as it should be of course.




So many beautiful shoes to chew when Mommy’s not looking.




A friend said to me recently that life is easier when your dog matches your upholstery.

Case in point here…




And here.




Don’t these two have a beautiful place to wait for Mommy and Daddy to come home?




Look at this little French Bulldog and his hip and colorful pad!




And who wouldn’t want to come home to this face?  And that fabulous color on the walls?



I saved my favorite for last.  I have a huge soft spot for Bulldogs – those smushed faces are irresistible to me!  Love how this guys climbs right up and settles in for a snuggle on a pretty cool, rustic bed.




Kudos to these photographers and designers for keeping their spaces real by including these furry family members in their photos.


Are you a dog lover?  What’s your pooch’s favorite perch?

        I love the blue color on the walls in the second to last pic. I wonder if we have tried that swatch in my bedroom yet? Very sophisticated.
