Decorating with Dog // 10 Tactful Home Design Ideas That WOW
If you’re anything like me, you get really excited about cute dog everything. But no tchotchkes, please; when it comes to what I want in my home, it has to be a great mix of modern, rustic, beautiful, and well-planned. Keep reading for a list of my 10 favorite ways to bring a little canine joy into your home…
#1 Dog Park Wallpaper from Hygge & West
I have been longing for this wallpaper for years! I love the color tones, adorable doggie silhouettes, and how perfectly modern it is! I can see this wallpaper being used in an entry, as an accent wall anywhere in the house, or in the doggie wash room. What a great way to say I love dogs!
#2 Wall Art from Westway Studio
One of my very favorite ways to decorate is with wall art. I have Framed Canvases, Framed Metal Prints, and Photographic Prints on the walls all around my home. Every time I see them I’m reminded of where we were and what we were doing. Even photos I’ve had on the walls for years still bring me such a rush of joy!
Here’s a helpful hint for choosing artwork for your walls: cut out a piece of paper the size of the art you’re thinking about and tape it to the wall. Ask yourself if it’s too small, too large, or just right. I make this process super easy for my portrait clients; all you have to do is send me a picture and I do the rest!
#3 Dog Tea Towel Bundle from Gingiber
So, I’m kind of addicted to tea towels — especially ones with animals on them. Aren’t these guys just so adorable? I love the simplicity of the dogs’ shapes and the beautiful patterns of their fur!
#4 Keepsake Box from Westway Studio
A client favorite and something a bit unique, Keepsake Boxes are one of the most versatile pieces of artwork I offer! The box is completely customized for every pet and comes with 10 or 25 mounted prints in the box. It also comes with a perfect little easel for displaying the prints! I love it because it’s like an album but you get to take the pictures out!
#5 Laser-Engraved Doggie Rolling Pins from Valek Rolling Pins
As if I could forget about the baked goods! They definitely deserve a little canine happiness, too! Want to make butter cookies even better? Cover them in corgis; it’s that simple! The corgi rolling pin is my absolute favorite — because who doesn’t love corgis?! — but they have a few different breed options!
#6 Woof Welcome Mat from Grandin Road
What better way to get your guests excited for a waggly-tail greeting than with an adorable welcome mat at your front door? I just love colorful mats with cute sayings or graphics and this one is one of my top favorites!
#7 Heritage Etching from Westway Studio
Take a step back in time to when artisan craftsmanship was the way of the world. Heritage Etchings are made by hand through every step of the process. The ink is mixed specifically for each print, hand-applied to the plate, and personally pressed onto luxurious cotton paper. This means that for our pets who have passed, we can include a small bit of their ashes into the actual print, making it an incredible memorial piece. The hand-soldered frame adds the perfect modern-rustic finishing touch with its floating glass and perfectly imperfect edges.
#8 Stylish Dog Wall Hooks from The Company Store
Perfect for hanging harnesses and leashes, keys, or the training treat bag, these hooks will add nothing but style to your entryway! I love the antique silver finish and all of the details. There are a few breed options but I simply can’t resist that little doxie!
#9 Handmade Ceramic Dog Bowl from Wild Hound Outfitters
The colors on these bowls — I mean, come on! I’m so in love with these handmade pieces of ceramic art! I can see them fitting perfectly anywhere that needs a little pop of color and natural charm. Place them on a woven mat for extra texture!
#1O Fine Art Mounts from Westway Studio
Perfect for the mantle, your desk, or a nightstand, Fine Art Mounts are a Westway favorite. I love that they’re so elegant yet understated. They arrive with an easel-stand backing so you simply unwrap and enjoy.
