.Just as every home is different, so is every dog. In this stunningly photographed book of architecturally superb houses—many of them architects’ own homes—readers see ho the presence of a dog brings warmth and life to the most dramatic spaces.
“Photographing people’s homes on a regular basis, I soon realized that the shoots I enjoyed most were the ones where dogs were present,” writes author and photographer Nicole England. “It didn’t matter how imposing the architecture, how serious the home owner, or how earnest the architect might be, some doggy hijinks could immediately bring an element of sociability, authenticity, and fun to the day.
Seemingly oblivious to the designer furniture, heritage considerations or serious design aesthetics, dogs can make themselves at home anywhere, and make any room feel more like home.
We are so proud to showcase this incredible book in our current edition. Learn more at residentdog.net.
