The Pampered Pooch

Tim Flach Photography
They come in all shapes and sizes, short hair or long hair, mega drooler or a mega shedder, dogs are part of our every day life. I never understood the point of having an "off limits" room; decorating around slobbery pups or sticky peanut butter and jelly fingers is a lot easier than you think. From Sunbrella fabrics, to custom built in dog beds, bowls, and doors, you can achieve the perfect balance between a stunning home and a happy pooch. Open any good interior design book or magazine and there will be at least one image with a dog in the room or sometimes entire spaces created for them. To me this is refreshing not only because I am a complete dog lover, but because it shows how some of the most beautiful interiors are actually practical living spaces. After all, what is the point of owning a dog if you are not going to spoil them just a little?

  1. I know this is an old post but do I see three labs? Yellow, chocolate and black? How do you stay clean? How do you stay sane? How do you do design?
    I live in Haverford, PA not far and I have a WHITE LAB puppy since February. The fur is driving me nuts along with all the other puppy stuff. Is 2 easier since they play with each other?
    Just wanted to know how you got through the day.

  2. You do see three, two blacks and a yellow. We used to have 4 labs believe it or not. I lived at home with my parents until I got married and the yellow guy is mine. Now that we live alone I must say one is definitely easier. You need to get furminator, most expensive dog brush but worth every penny! If you need any more tips feel free to email me!
