11 Dogs Who Complement Their Interiors Beautifully
Canines and owners are said to look alike, but here’s the evidence that décor and dogs have plenty in common, too
In the interests of further research (OK, for fun), I wondered whether such matching extends to the canine and the style of his or her home. Spoiler: I reckon it does. Here’s the (unscientific) proof.
In this kitchen, a rough-coated hound and wooden physics lab bench that bears the signs of a long life are a great match for textural appeal.
Like the idea of softening a modern interior? Adding in a piece of furniture like this one that provides raw contrast to sleeker surfaces is a simple solution.
Wouldn’t you just love to stop for a while in this relaxing living space? You could sink into a comfy armchair, arrange the shaggy cushions just so, and even help yourself to a blanket to make things super-cosy.
You’ll need to take the seat on the right, though; one of those shaggy cushions has beaten you to the leather armchair. Love the way the gorgeous pooch has a bovine lookalike on a cushion, too.
Here’s a cute canine helping to make a house into a home, and who, rather beautifully, echoes the colourway of the logs stacked below and alongside the fireplace. A classic Egg chair in brown leather continues the colour theme, with dining chairs in green completing the nature-inspired palette.
Tone-on-tone neutrals for this living room scheme are mirrored by the dog’s coat, and I’d say the interior-canine connection doesn’t end there. This pet’s elegant features complement the refined detail of the room’s architecture to a tee.

Black and tan harmonises with the metal table legs, fire basket, companion set and exposed brick in this lovely living room-plus-hound combo.
Check out the novel TV stand here, too, which is right at home with other vintage pieces in the room. Borrowing the idea? A low sofa’s best to make viewing comfortable when the telly’s not far off the floor.
Looking for an easy way to dovetail dog and décor? This wallpaper will do the job – and allow four-legged companions to check out some familiar portraits. It’s used for an en suite in this home, but would look equally stylish in a cloakroom, utility or boot room if you’re lucky enough to have the space.
This adorable pair are as smooth and glossy as their surroundings. With the butter-soft leather sofa and curvy glass coffee table, the room is a lesson in contemporary that doesn’t lack in comfort. Pet owners will also appreciate the easy-clean sleek floor tiles.
If you’re after luxury in the bedroom, silk and velvet might be your fabrics of choice – as in this room – and a silky, velvety pair like these two dogs are certainly equal to the opulent look. Bear in mind that neither these sorts of fabrics nor gleaming Fido will look their best without accent lighting directed their way.

White walls, white ceilings and white terrazzo floors allow the artwork in this contemporary home to shine. This canine coordinates beautifully with the bright white backdrop, of course, but just like the sculptural white objects, it’s impossible to miss the pup’s presence.
