If you're a dog lover and want to create a living space that reflects your passion, you're in luck! The latest trends in animal-inspired decor are all about incorporating our beloved four-legged friends into our homes. With these easy-to-implement ideas, you can bring all your favorite dogs, and more, into your interior design.
Dogs Galore: An Abundance of Canine Charm
You can easily incorporate dogs into your apartment decor through various motifs. Consider adding dog-printed cushions to your sofa or bed, and explore the wide range of dog portraits available in the interior design market. You can also find dog-themed tableware, curtains, and vases to add a canine touch to your space. Whether you prefer a specific dog breed or want to embrace all kinds of dogs, including cartoon characters like Milou, Bill, or Idéfix, the choice is yours. And if you're a true dog enthusiast, you can even consider wallpapering your walls with dog head patterns.
A dog, a source of happiness and... light
During the last Dog Day event, experts unanimously agreed that having a dog at home is a true source of happiness. To take it a step further, you can also turn these joyful animals into a source of light by getting yourself a Woof dog lamp. This creative wooden creation, topped with an aluminum lampshade, can sit, lie down, and stand on its legs, adding a playful and warm touch to your interior. Not only will it provide entertainment by allowing you to vary the decorative effects, but it will also create interesting lighting patterns depending on the position you give to the lamp.
To play, but also to look beautiful
What does your dog love most in the world, playing or striking a pose? Puppy, the small dog created by Finnish designer Eero Aarnio, does both. This well-grounded animal with its tail held high offers an ideal seat for young children, who can straddle it and embark on wild imaginary adventures. But while reinterpreting the tradition of the rocking horse, Puppy will also delight all decor enthusiasts who will find in it an excellent way to enhance their interior, where the animal will bring a contemporary and unusual touch. Available in green, orange, and white, and in three sizes, Puppy is unmatched in adding a touch of flair to your living room!
Books, Libraries, and Dogs
Looking to add a touch of warmth and creativity to your office or bedroom? Consider incorporating a wooden dog-shaped shelf into your decor. These shelves feature the back of the dog as a storage surface, with the head and tail serving as side panels. Not only are they perfect for displaying books, candles, vases, or framed photos, but they also add a unique and rustic charm to any space. These dog shelves can be placed on the floor or mounted on the wall, and you can even create an entire wall filled with these animal-themed shelves, arranged in various directions. The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating with these dog shelves!
If you have an outdoor space such as a garden, balcony, or terrace, don't forget to enhance your flower beds with a couple of dog statues or place stone dogs as guardians at your front door. You can also get creative with your landscaping by shaping your flower beds to resemble the silhouette or snout of a dog. The choice of dog breed is entirely up to you and your personal preferences. And while you're at it, consider planting some "dents-de-chien" flowers, a beautiful wildflower with a vibrant purple color and a corolla shape reminiscent of a dog's tooth.
