Wanting to give the homeowners' service dog, Rescue, a space of his own, the designer transformed the dead space beneath the stairs into a private, puppy-friendly alcove. Built-in storage allows for stocking treats and toys, while a buffet table down the hall displays the owners' personal mementos.
Amy and Matt’s puppy, Rye, sits in repose in one of her favorite spots at home, the sofa. For Amy and Matt, the sofa's color is perfect, as dog hair easily blends in with the aesthetic. To create her peaceful, earthy look, Amy likes to blend textures in a neutral color palette and let the differences between textures bring out the variations in color. Here, a velvet sofa, a hemp rug and woven pouf all come together beautifully, with subtle color shifts and a mix of textures.
