Sweet and Stylish Ideas for Decorating with Dog Art

Dogs are a part of your family. They have their own personalities, thoughts, and feelings and become an important part of your life when you adopt them. Just like we adorn our homes with photographs of our human family members, decorating with photographs of your dog is just as fulfilling.

Even if you don’t have a dog, decorating with dog art brings a sense of whimsy and cheer to a space. I don’t know about you, but I can’t help but smile when I see a happy dog face looking back at me. Whether it’s a black and white gallery wall or a bright, colorful piece of art, the installation will add life and charm to your decor.

Here are 10 great examples of decorating with dog art to inspire you.

Home Tour: Lea Michele’s Fresh LA Retreat

Actress Lea Michele recently traded in the hustle and bustle of her Hollywood home for a more private, tranquil retreat in a canyon in West L.A. The home is outfitted with the same idea of being a place in which she can unwind and escape from the craziness of her Hollywood life. This translates to clean lines, a soft color palette, and beautiful views of the nature that surrounds the property.

If you love the look of modern decor with personality, then this home will definitely give you some ideas and inspiration. Though the decor has a minimalist sensibility, Lea has accented it with decor that has character and charm. It’s modest, yet very comfortable.

The Bold and Beautiful Effect of a Black Backsplash

A backsplash always elevates the style of a kitchen and makes it look more finished. There are a lot of options to choose from, which boil down to how much of a statement you want to make. Do you want something subtle or would you like to look at the backsplash as an opportunity to do something bold and interesting? A black backsplash, for example, definitely serves up the latter.

It’s not an option that many people think of because it is so dramatic, but it can actually look chic and stunning when done right. It can create a stunning look of contrast or provide a cozy, masculine appeal depending on what it’s paired with. The type of tile you choose (or if you use tile at all), grout color, and way you lay the tile also has an impact on the final result.

Here are 10 inspiring kitchens with a black backsplash to give you some ideas and show you how amazing this element can look.

10 Chic and Cozy Farmhouse Dining Room Ideas

Without a doubt, farmhouse is one of the most popular styles in decorating right now. It’s not hard to see why – the style is full of character, not to mention incredibly versatile. Even just a touch of farmhouse style adds some warmth and charm to a space. Farmhouse dining rooms especially offer a lot of opportunities to embrace some of the beauty of farm life, which is perfect for a room that is all about gathering together and enjoying a great meal.

As I mentioned, one of the best things about farmhouse style is how versatile it is. You can mix it with traditional, contemporary, modern, industrial, and even glamorous elements. Farmhouse can be the main anchor style or it can be an accent that adds a touch of rustic charm. You can also choose which elements from farmhouse you want to use, whether it’s reclaimed wood, vintage accessories, or certain times of greenery.

Here are 10 inspiring farmhouse dining rooms to give you some ideas.

Going Gorgeous in Green in Your Bathroom

One of my favorite colors to decorate and stage with is green. What’s great about green is that because so much of it is found in nature, it has an inspiring, earthy quality that always brings life to a space. In a bathroom, this quality is great because it’s a wonderful color both to wake up to and to relax to at the end of the day.

Green bathrooms are also gender neutral, so if you share the space with people of varying tastes, green is a great option that has personality but suits a lot of different styles. There are also a lot of tones and shades to choose from. For something sophisticated and eye-catching, emerald can always be counted on to make a statement. For something more subtle, a deep green or soft green works well. For something bright and vibrant, try lime green.

Here are 10 inspiring green bathrooms to give you some ideas.
