1. Foo dogs are actually lions. In China, where foo dogs originated, they are called shi, meaning “lion,” or shishi, meaning “stone lion.” They do share a resemblance with the Chow Chow and Shih Tzu, which led these figures to be called foo dogs (or fu dogs) in English — though you may also see them referred to as Chinese guardian lions, guardian dogs or stone temple dogs.

The couple has filled the home with photos, art and collectibles that have personal meaning. “Doug and I are avid travelers — we met on an airplane — and we make a point to shop for pieces for our home in different corners of the world,” McBurnett says. “This way we’re surrounded by beautiful things that also remind us of the places we’ve been.” These pieces are found on this wall as well as on tables and other surfaces throughout the room. “The foo dogs are from Pearl River; the collection of Assouline books are from places we’ve traveled to; the ashtrays are vintage; the blue bowl is a family heirloom from Iceland and holds coral we’ve collected around the world,” McBurnett says. Rug: Overstock; tray, Altrazurra, Target; candle: Diptyque; stash box: Jonathan Adler
