1. Log cabin dog house
Do your dog house up pilgrim style! This is pretty easy to do. All you need is some rounded beams, or you can split some small logs in half. Then just nail or glue them onto the walls of the house. It doesn’t even need painting – just a bit of non-toxic wood sealant, and you’re set. If you’re using bare wood rather than logs, you can stain them a little darker to look more log-like.
2. Tudor cottage dog house
Another fairly easy option. First, paint the walls of the dog house white. Next, get some small beams of wood – 2″x1″ or similar – and stick them on in a criss-cross pattern. A quick google for tudor cottages should give you lots of examples for the best patterns to use – basically, you want large squares or rectangles with diagonal cross beams. Stain the beams very dark, for that old, weathered wood look. You can stain the roof dark to match, or apply some shingles to look like tiles – or make a thatched roof if you really want to get into the theme!
3. Victorian house
If you live in a classic American home, then it can be nice to decorate your dog house to match. For this, you want to cover the whole of the walls with wide, thin beams. You can lay them either vertically or horizontally. Then paint them a nice color to match your house. Lay some shingles on the roof, and again, paint or stain them to match. If you’re very handy, a porch is a great finishing touch. It can be a pain to put one on the front of the house, and sometimes dogs knock over porch columns on their way in. But you can attach a porch to the side more easily, and it’ll look just as good.
4. Castle dog house
This design is easiest to do if your dog house has a flat roof. Cut some battlements out of plywood or similar, and glue them along the top of the walls. Then attach towers at the corners – square towers are easiest, but round ones look more fairytale. Paint the whole thing a nice stone grey if you’re going for the medieval look, or white/cream if you’re going for a more fairytale look. You can use a pencil and a ruler to add lines to represent blocks of stone.
5. Dog house stencils
This is one of the easiest ways to decorate a dog house, and it’s a lot of fun to do as a project with kids. All you need is some non-toxic paint, some cardboard, and some sponges. Paint the whole house one color first, and let it dry. Then cut some fun shapes out of cardboard – bones and paw-prints are easy and cute – and show the kids how to use the sponges to create the stencil. You can use more than one color with each stencil so you have multi-colored shapes. If the dog house has a wooden platform in front of the door (a good idea, as it gives your dog somewhere warm and dry to lie when he doesn’t want to be in the house), it’s a nice touch to paint it to look like a ‘welcome’ mat – or paint ‘Home Sweet Home’ on it!
However you decide to decorate your dog house, make sure the underlying construction is good. Your dog doesn’t care how his house looks, but it’ll make a big difference to him if it’s the wrong size, or if it’s not properly insulated.
You can use real fruit or faux fruit in your decor. Try using cranberries in a glass vase as a holiday centerpiece. Pears add natural color to your room. Instead of a classic fruit bowl, modernize the look a little bit with a sleek wood bowl and only one type of fruit.
Mirrors are classic pieces. For a timeless look, you can go with a basic round, square or oval shape. The frame should be simple and can coordinate with your light fixtures or wood furniture. Use this in place of artwork to help small rooms feel larger.
Candleholders are a staple in home decor but yours can be different. Look for silver tones with oversized silhouettes. You could also have an entire collection instead of the basic set of two.
A timeless lamp would have a white or black shade. The base can feature basic leaf or circle details. You change up the classic silhouette with a buffet lamp which is tall and narrow. When going with a taller table lamp, it’s important to make sure that you can still read by the light.
5. Metal Wall Decor
Metal wall decorations can combine several basic accessories. This could be a basket that hangs directly against the wall to hold flowers. You could also add more importance to a welcome sign with an iron material. This will coordinate with any black furniture that you have in the room. Other timeless motifs of this type would include a tree or just scroll work.
6. Area Rugs
If you want an area rug with a lasting style then look for natural motifs. This includes vines and flowers. Damask and Oriental patterns are traditional and elegant. Almost any color palette can be traditional depending on the tone, material and pattern. This means that you can choose a rug that compliments the rest of your decorating colors.
7. Jewelry Boxes & Storage Containers
Jewelry boxes and small chests add in stylish storage. Find heirloom pieces with embossing. Make sure that the wood tone matches the rest of the furniture in your space. Books are a staple in decor and it can also be a secret hiding place. Find a hollowed out faux book with a storage container on the inside for a unique decorative accessory.
8. Canister Sets
You can use canisters in the kitchen to store food and spices. It’s a basic countertop decoration but there are all different styles. A canister set can have several pots on one wrought iron stand. You could also add shimmer to the room with mother of pearl jars.
Sculpture can be an investment piece or just purely decorative. Equestrian statues and globes are lasting silhouettes. You can also invest in a grouping of antique or reproduction finials.
