We have all seen adorable pooches posing in interior photography to add a touch of personality to the space. Whether you adore your dog(s) and want to celebrate their spunk or just admire their canine beauty from afar, here are ways to incorporate dogs in your design without the messy fur.
A true dog lover's bedroom with two framed illustrations and a pillow. The addition of the doggie decor makes this bedroom feel rustic and masculine, to be shared with man's best friend.
This minimalist pillow will always be welcome on your bed.
Dog paintings can add a dash of familial warmth to a cozy den. The warm earthy tones in the painting complement the sofa and curtain colors.

Dog decor can be whimsical or taken very seriously. A large monochromatic portrait of two black dogs is showcased as the main art piece in this carefully considered open-plan living space.
Remember the George Rodriguez Blue Dog art widely popular in the 1990s? It still works today as a punchy pop-art collectors' piece in modern spaces.

Dog decor can be as subtle as a simple pattern in a collection of accent pillows. Don't go overboard with too many dog fabrics in one room. Too much of a good thing ... is not very good.
Add a global vibe with a Chinese foo dog statue. The touch of turquoise among the fiery reds is an interesting contrast.
Here is an option for your own matching pair of Chinese foo dogs.
