Decorating with Dog Portraits

I have a crazy obsession with dog portraits and am constantly on the hunt for that perfect painting to hang in my home or in a client’s home. In my foyer below you can see my favorite doggy portrait. If you remember from the glimpse of my home, the formality of the painting and the frame next to the shaggy little doggy just makes me smile and sets the tone of how the rest of my quirky little home feels. Also below, find some great dog portraits and decorating ideas to go with them:

1. How sweet are these little dogs? I love the idea of creating a cluster of dog portraits.

2. Why not a contemporary and graphic interpretation like these guys? Love artist Ron Krajewski’s interpretation!

3. The full-body profile of these two portraits is fantastic! I can just imagine these in a very contemporary home…. How fun!

Don’t you just love all these dog portraits? For more updates on artwork and items I love, inspirations, interior design projects and more, be sure to subscribe to the blog.
