I will admit to styling homes around beautiful canines. It makes sense: pets are reflections of their owners. We sublimate our best selves in the choice of our four-legged companions and so it logically follows that if a designer can pull the qualities of the client’s furry best friends into their homes the result will be as pleasing to the client as the company they have chosen.
Take unstoppable Jasper here: the carpet is as rich and lavish in texture as his coat, the table as rugged and masculine as his demeanor, the knotted chestnut floor a close play to his café-au-lait coat punctured by his truffle nose and eyes. Just wait for the black wood chairs with cord, a clever color reversal of the floor, and the cognac distressed leather sofa that already looks broken into by his nails.
Pepper the kitchen with oil- rubbed bronze hardware and paper the entry with pines arising from the mist…et voilà! The lair of Jasper-the-Great comes to life for his owners to find comfort and warmth they can recognize and feel.
