Pets Always Welcome! Interior Design With A Canine Twist

by Katie on May 4, 2011

 Some of the things I love in life are my family, friends, interior design, and dogs! I’m a huge lover of animals in general! I especially love dogs (oh and horses and cats too)! I have a dream of some day owning a huge black and white spotted Great Dane! But my husband seems to think otherwise. We shall see about that!!! Take a look at a few furniture and artwork finds that incorporate beloved ani-pals! In my opinion, any room no matter how chic is always enhanced by a furry friend!

While doing research for another blog post, I came across this picture. I fell in love with it! I have a rat terrier and a lab that look all most exactly like these paintings. I guess you could say “it spoke to me”.

Walking my dogs a few weeks ago I passed by a beautiful old home with two large dog statues on either side of the front door similar to these from Jonathan Alder. I just adore them!

 Ohh, these chairs from London furniture designers, Jimmie Karlsson and Martin Nihlmar, of Jimmie Martin, LTD are so fantastic I had a post a couple of them! From what I can find on the web they have a knack for creating funky, one of kind pieces out of antique styled furniture frames. They seem to blend pop art with antiques seamlessly!

A wonderful black, white and yellow color palette. Coupled with dog statues!! Perfection!

A spotted Great Dane portrait! It’s a little too “country looking” for my personal taste! But I had to include this picture! Love it!
