Whoever said being in the dog house was a bad thing?? I, for one, think dog house dwelling can be quite chic! The days of cold coverings outside (you know- those compact, barren, mini wood sheds) are so passé. These days, having a private residence is almost a status symbol! Architects, creatives and just general crafty people are designing serious shelters that could be featured in Architectural Digest!
I’ve put together a little list (in no paw-ticular order) of some of my favorite flats.
The Cubix House! This is a German designed modern masterpiece! Cool vaulted ceilings and a giant front window make it hard to feel claustrophobic inside.
Ok! Admittedly, this two story walk up doesn’t come in at bargain basement cheap, but! it’s so smartly designed! The included step stool means you’re kept off the ground and out of the way of the elements. It’s designed by a group called Mogis and comes in orange or white.
Operetta Pet Bed, designed by Kenneth Cobonpue. This modern dwelling looks like a mini amphitheater! Stay in on all the action with it’s open end- plus! it’s great for the beach!
Luxurious & Lavish
Ottoman Empire? Medieval Times? Just plain posh? No matter your fascination, this stylish paisley place is just the spot to saunter off into dreamland.
Harlequin Printed Pet Bed. It’s so royally chic in it’s simplicity. This inexpensive bed looks far more rich than it’s price tag reads.
This Imperial Looking Palace is made completely by hand. It looks like it could have been taken straight from the Forbidden City in China. There wasn’t a single detail left out!
Outdoorsy Options for the Camping Canine
Custom Airstream trailers, just our size. These nostalgic looking pads are so fun, even if you’re just having a stay-cation. Just like camping, you have to go outside to eat your food… but stay away from the s’mores, you know better!
Wagwear’s TeePee is a “with it” way to go camping. The waterproof shell protects you from the elements and the orange piping adds some flair. Outdoor enthusiasts- this is for you!
Camping is about more than just roughing it! This designer hammock makes star gazing a total breeze!
Not only does the garden rroooof-top look great, but it soaks up some of the heat on this outside homestead. These sustainable shelters come in lots of different styles and colors- it’s really hard to choose. They are all made in the U.S.!
As well as having a cool space-aged look, this house is also 100% recycled! It’s made from plastic bottles.
These retro “upcycled” dog beds are so hip! Each one is made from vintage luggage or briefcases that have been revamped to hold a cushy upholstered bed. There were so many on etsy to choose from, this gray and red plaid bed seemed like a fun masculine option.
Happy house hunting!
