Home is where… your pets are! Seriously, is there anything that gives a room more personality than your own pup perched up among your new throw pillows? We’re gonna say no. Here are some inspiring spaces that are both impeccably designed AND pet-friendly. For starters, this entryway, complete with a bubblegum pink front door, has us almost convinced that we could raise a Great Dane in atiny apartment
No headboard? No problem! The colorful, abstract canvas ties together the whole space and serves as a makeshift headboard. Oh, and the cat totally fits the space’s color story, too.
This space nods to old and new all at once. The retro-inspired prints play off a set of contemporary coffee tables and the eclectic mix of furniture. And we think this kitty approves, don’t you?
An all-ivory kitchen and sitting area get a pop of personality with a tufted pink velvet ottoman and a lazy but adorable Australian Shepherd.
Watch the throne. This cat’s got one attractive sitting space–a round-backed dining chair, fitted with a bright orange cushion, and fiddle leaf fig in a dalmation-spot planter. What’s not to love?
Sweet serenity. With fluffy linen bedding, a nailhead trimmed headboard, and soft gray accents, this space is practically begging this pooch to take a snooze.
This cat is digging this unexpected color combo, mais ouis? Filing this lavender and powder blue palette under “Dream Bedrooms.”
Black, white, and orange all over. This brightgalley kitchen
feels fresh yet lived-in, thanks to our feline friend.
What’re YOU looking at? We know what’s caught our eye–that black marble farm sink. Its contrast with white wooden cabinetry has us seriously in love.
Well, hello there. The only thing cuter than a tiny woven wastebasket is when there’s an even tinier bunny making itself quite comfortable. P.S. don’t miss that subtly chic octagonal bathroom tile. Major points.
Fifty shades of blue take this Moroccan-style bedroom to such a great place. And we know that cat is loving the pom-pom lined blankets when its owner leaves the room…
This is the perfect sofa for stretching out, no? We can’t decide what we love more–that white and black geometric rug, the midcentury modern furniture, or that bulldog that makes us set totally new standards for #lazysunday.
has space for a furry plus one. With small-scale plants and a short side table, you hardly notice that the bed is without a frame.
In this gleaming white living room, a handsome black lab makes himself at home.
This pup just looks like it’s begging for a quick cuddle sesh on that plush loveseat.
Could you imagine a backyard that’s any more peaceful? A koi pond creates a serene outdoor space this contemporary home, while also serving as a great outdoor activity for the kids.
Tea and crumpets, anyone? This cat is practically begging us to spend the afternoon in this sunny, inviting kitchen.
Seeing double. We love that bespoke painting of Jack Russell Terriers. Looks like these two pups are ready for their close up… again.
Talk about a pristine pooch. This beagle feels stylish and poised in this warm, antique-filled bedroom.
Whoever said pink sofas are too bold is just plain wrong. This tiny Maltese is loving that mauve linen sofa just as much as we are.
A shabby-chic space feels complete with an equally shabby-chic pooch. A giant floor pouf is the perfect place for your dog to nap away the afternoon.
No bad luck here. This black cat feels more like a Parisian-posh accessory than a bad omen in this high-ceilinged space.
What’s more relaxing than a neutral bedroom full of books? This pup can give you the answer. We love the painted bookshelves, which complement the neutral bedding in a soft, sophisticated way.
Is this chair or that cat begging for more attention? We’ll spend equal time swooning over both.
A giant, raw wood front door makes a serious and stylish first impression. When greeted by rich-toned artwork and a friendly little dog, we’re already excited to come over again.
This room makes a serious case for painting your wood floors! A mossy green rug makes a big statement, while a snowy-white dog is almost camouflaged on the clean, bright floorboards.
