Pooch Prints

Adding personal touches to a home is key to making your space reflex you. Seems simple enough, but time and time again I walk into homes and see catalog pages staring back at me. I totally get it, it's easy and it looks pretty. 

One easy way to start incorporating a bit of "you" into your space is some personal prints. Some designers see personal photos as a big no-no, but I'm not one of them. I think they can be a stylish way. A different way to do family photo's is a custom piece of art. 

In my family our dogs are crucial members so I wanted to make sure they were represented.  

Check out the proofs I just got: 



So cute! I'm in love with them. I know custom prints normally equal a high price tag, but not these! I found Whitney via her etsy shop, African Grey and two 8 x 10 custom prints come in at $32!

What about you? Do you represent your furry friends in your home decor?

You have the cutest pups! These lovely!

We don't have any furry friends just yet...I'm hoping when we move back to CA in Jan we will finally get one :)

I totally believe that one of the best ways to personalize a home is to add personal photos...they tell a story about who you are, where you've traveled, what activities you enjoy and who you surround yourself with...I cringe at the idea of photos be a no-no in a persons own home. Love your pooch prints!

These are so cute! And I love adding personal pictures too. I want my house to be filled with things I love and that remind me of good times. And why take photos if you aren't going to look at them!?

I have been lusting after something like this for awhile and these seem perfect in every way (ie: price). I have yet to check out her etsy shop but I'm crossing my fingers she does kitty cats!!

Darling! I agree. If done well, personal photos are an important part of a family home. The dog prints are PERFECT and I just recommended them to one of my clients for part of her stairway gallery. Thank you!

I completely agree with you. The personal touches are what make a house a home. We do not have furry kids. We have the actual kids ;) Instead of high priced artwork that we really can't afford, I have hung their masterpieces in the dining room. We are very casual at home. It was appropriate for our space. The kids always get compliments on their art, too.

So cute! I totally agree with the personal touches. I have been lazy and don't have many personal photos out but I have plans to get some hung. We also don't have a pooch yet, but when we do he will definetly be part of the photo wall.

Such cute prints and as a designer I always encourage my clients to add family photos or anything that represents the uniqueness of their family in their home. I personally have many items from pillows to door tassels that celebrate our furry family members, a chihuahua and a cocker spaniel. Cant wait to visit the Etsy store.

Oh so happy you guys think my little children are cute! I can't get enough of them.

While I was working away at getting some custom artwork to represent them in our home they were outside playing...or so I thought. We went out at 11pm and saw that earlier in the day those two angels ripped apart 3 bags of trash and there was a mess all over the driveway.

Ah gotta love them!

I just had a watercolor of our Vella painted. It will be an anniversary present for the husband.
