After a recent kitchen update, as I was dusting and organizing all our crap to put back into the cabinets, my man turned to me and said, "Babe, think we can keep the decor to a minimum now that you're not trying to distract people from our fugly counter-tops anymore?". What? Simplicity? What the hell is that? Look bucko, you can't cage this beast. So you know what I did? I moved my attention up. A good relationship is about compromise, right?
Let's face it, big or small, pets have a lot of shit. Here are some tips on how to make keeping them loved and pampered more cohesive with your space:
Baskets or decorative boxes for dumb shit; remotes, blankets, house shoes, extra throw pillows, dog toys, etc. These things don't actually NEED a receptacle, but they look better in one.
Throw blanket(s) for your living room or bedroom in a coordinating accent color. But, be sure they're machine washable. If you have dogs, kids or a man, they acquire a musky smell after a few weeks of regular use.
