5 Design Trends to Give your Dog Space a Style-Lift
Posted on April 23 2019
When it comes to your home's interior, the Spring/Summer season is a great time to clean it up and change it up. Especially if you're a dog parent. Time to swap out crusty old dog bowls, ripped up beds and toys. When replacing your pet accessories, why not keep in mind your home's overall design aesthetics. With so many designers giving attention to stylish fixtures for our dogs, you’re bound to find pet bowls, dog beds and other accessories that work harmoniously with the rest of your décor.
We went on the hunt for some of our favorite designer bowls, beds and accessories by brands known for quality, creativity and on-trend design. Pairing them up with our own most popular Fusion Gates designs, here five fabulous pet space style-lifts to consider this season.
1. Color my World!
Spring/Summer is a great time to stimulate your senses with COLOR! Harry Barker has a fabulous line of colorful dog beds that go with just about any palette preference. Pair the bed with an innovative dome dog bowl by Hing. No matter the color you choose for your bowl or bed, Fusion Gates' beautiful Modern Lines safety gate is sure to bring it all together...creating the perfect space for your most colorful companion.
2. Subtle Sophistication
On the opposite extreme, you may be looking for a more subtle, sophisticated space for your precious pets. Consider designer dog accessories with warm tones like gold, nickel and white. We're not talking boring monotones. Gold itself illuminates and enhances all things around it (even dog food!).
Maybe that's why Versace used gold accents in their Medusa Gala pet bowl, outlining the edges with a classic greek key design. We've incorporated this same classic design in our own gold and silver Greek Key Fusion Gate framed in rich satin nickel. Balance the opulence with a luxurious Movik Dog Bed made by Labbvenn...one of Europe's most prestigious dog accessory companies.
3. Tropical ParadiseRoll down the windows and put the top down. Time to reintroduce sunshine back into our lives. We are thrilled that the tropics theme introduced last year is not going anywhere. You and your dog don't have to live at the beach to enjoy the positive vibes of coastal living.
Check out this fabulous dog bowl design of Monique Layzell's (also known as The Zebra Lady) featuring a beautiful mixed palm leaves pattern. If that's not enough to brighten your day, add this jungle-inspired dog bed in bright tropical colors by Goodnightdog.com. Bring your dog's space all together with our Fusion Gates' Peaceful Palm design to keep your pet safe in his very own tropical oasis.
4. Blushing Gardens
Blush tones and florals continue to be a popular choice for home accents particularly in this Spring/Summer season. We used this sweet yet subtle color in one of our newest art screens designs, Blushing Garden. We love the way it looks with in our white pearl Fusion Gate. We found this luscious blush-tone dog bed by Nice Digs to pair it with. Even Wayfair's Archie & Oscar brand had to use this pretty pink tone for there Kappel Speckle Melamine Pet Bowl.
5. Tribal with a Twist
In recent years, we've seen a merge of tribal design with free-spirited bohemian style. Even city dogs and their owners can enjoy this earthy, instinctive vibe in their concrete dwellings. We introduced our own tribal design last year...the Chevron Trail Fusion Gates (in blue, black or white) and it very quickly became our most popular art screen. Carry through that boho look with an eye-catching throw rug in a stunning Aztec pattern by Ruggable (it is actually washable!). Finish off your dog's space with one of The Inked Elephants high-styled dog bowls in bright contemporary colors.
