Decoration ideas for dog lovers

The choice of an interior decoration is never made at random. In general, mixing all styles is not advisable. The result is likely to be the opposite of your expectations and to disappoint you. It is best to focus on a central theme. If you're a dog lover, here are some decorating ideas inspired by your companion to enhance your interior spaces.

Decorative, non-toxic houseplants

Owning a dog does not prevent you from having green plants to decorate your home. However, you must make sure that they are not toxic to your pet.

If your pet starts to chew on their extremities, simply take them for a short walk to let off steam with fresh grass. Saintpaulia is one of the suitable houseplants. Also known as the "African violet", it has round, curved leaves that surround beautiful, intensely coloured flowers. Bamboo and adiantum fragrans are two other plants that go perfectly with dog-inspired decorations.

Animal carpets to warm up the decoration

When you share your interior spaces with a dog, your furniture and carpets are often the targets of scratches. Therefore, you should choose carpets that are resistant to your pet's whims and warm your decor at the same time. Indeed, some materials and colours wear out much faster than others.

Therefore, it is strongly advised not to choose woolen carpets or carpets with a loop. In addition, light colours should be avoided so that stains are not easily visible. Speckled carpets and carpets with small patterns are ideal.

Paintings to brighten up the walls and add a touch of fantasy.

Successful interior design is achieved through the floor and walls. To bring a touch of fantasy and originality to your decor, dog wall paintings are a great idea. The replicas of the works of Cassius Marcellus Coolidge entitled Dogs playing Poker are perfect. This is a series of 16 world-famous paintings by this American painter born in 1844 for Brown & Bigelow to promote cigars.

All the characters are dogs in human poses playing Poker around a gaming table.

Two-in-one design furniture for the owner and his dog

If you really want an interior design inspired by your pet, you can also choose furniture specially designed for the dog and its owner. For example, sofas that can be shared without your pet climbing on your lap and leaving its hair on your clothes. You can also decorate your home with a chest of drawers that includes a dog eating area and storage space for kibble bags. Finally, instead of books, you can turn the shelves on the walls into a pet sitting area if you have a small dog.
