Decorating for Doggy

 March 1, 2014

This week a client of ours broke the news of their newest, wiggliest, furriest, sometimes sweetest but often destructive addition.

Introducing, their currently 17lb someday 70lb Yellow Lab: Bogiebogie

Before Bogie, their home had always been one of impeccable design, taste and style. Typically neat and rarely in disarray.

Enter Bogie, re-decorating doggy style. So far, he hasn’t found a single thing he doesn’t like to chew. He enjoys his toys best strewn throughout the entire space of the room he is in. And, apparently, he enjoys jumping up on everything he can reach.. which is progressively and rapidly reaching new heights.

After two weeks at home we received our mission: To incorporate dog friendly solutions into the decor which are functional, intentional and architecturally appealing. Meanwhile, also keeping the integrity of style throughout the home intact.

We instantly began measuring, brainstorming and designing. The web provided a plethora of inspiration, as always.

Here are some of our favorites:

Kitchen:

Here’s an opportunity to feature one of Bogie’s favorite parts of the day as a very clean, natural part of the room. We found this design from ITI on Houzz and love it.Mediterranean Kitchen by Solana Beach Interior Designers & Decorators Intimate Living Interiors

 

The Kitchen or Laundry Room Dog Crate:

For our crate enthusiasts, the following design sacrifices a bottom cabinet for a good cause. Rather than adding a typically unattractive, bulky, albeit functional standard dog crate and cutting into the floor space and compromising style we love the idea of building the crate into an existing space just as Lubbock Kitchen and Bath Designers have done here.

 

Under the Stairs:

Here’s another favorite use of space. Under the stair cut out. Sneaky and smart.

On the Patio:

Who could resist a rest right here?

All from us for now.  We have our work cut our for us… and so do Bogie’s proud parents.

Congratulations!!
