Often restructuring, buying new furniture, renovating do not go hand in hand with the idea “I want to take a dog“.
You have the conception that puppy dog and perfect home are antipodes!
This is not the case with the project I’m about to tell you, where we have as protagonists:
- a Golden Retriever female puppy
- a living to be renewed
The little Golden was obviously a fury as only puppies can be! Naughty, beautiful and … full of hairs!
That’s why I thought, during the project, to make some small adjustments to get an obviously good result, considering a nice puppy ready to grow!
With the purpose to renew the living room (within a larger project that included renovating attic and bedroom for the daughter) and not complete renovation, the client wanted to keep several of her furniture, also the floor.
- a table with crystal glass top and black legs
- black chairs
- large wooden bookcase
- sideboard (but actually we will see that I changed client’s mind about this point: D)
The project with some puppy-proof arrangements
The relooking of the living then started with the redesign of the TV area.
Given the size of the library that occupies a large part of the space in the living room, I opted for a very simple TV cabinet but that could offer great storage space.
I also wanted it to be completely closed, and here we have the first animal-proof appendage!
With pets it is advisable to open boxes near the floor, as they are areas where you can easily accumulate hairs together with dust.
The furniture will therefore consist of only flap elements. In addition, the closed compartments allow you to give a semblance of greater order rather than the open boxes! Unless you are super-ordered.
The sofa wanted to be a place to get in the evening watching TV comfortably.
With reduced space, I opted for the choice of a sofa with removable seats: this allows to strain or stretch the legs without having a chaise longue. Customer liked it right away!
In the moodboard below, find the combination of fabric for the sofa in warm light gray, and for the armchair, in blue gray off with contrast stitching Conchiglia, a light turtledove with which will be lacquered also the living room furniture.
Now I also show you the second choice pet-proof!
I did not want to give up the carpet, because in my stay it was crucial to insert a carpet that would break the floor monotony.
You know, dogs or cats do not agree much with the carpets … among pulled yarns, hairy and dirty, especially in light colors, you risk investing so much in a nice carpet to repent.
Vinyl rugs are durable and easy to wash! Then those of Beija Flor have impeccably crafted designs.
The proposed carpet is of a Dark / Golden Ocra shade, which is well suited to the floor on light gray.
As I told you, I also changed client’s mind on the board to keep! The existing one had to be set up, so I proposed a new sideboard for the client, which could be combined with the colors of the table as its function will serve that area.
Love at first glance for the “Incontro” sideboard by Sangiacomo brand .
Final photo realistic renders
Before going to the final renders, we have also gone trough choosing the colors of the walls.
My proposal was to highlight the wall behind the TV, and I proposed:
- a gray with a very light blue tip
- a gray with a bit fuller than blue
As you can see from the renders, the choice has fallen on the gray with the blueest dot! This color gives a lot more character to the environment.
What do you think about this dog-proof relooking ? 🙂
