For all you dog people out there, it’s the year of the dog so get the party started in celebration of the lunar new year! If you were born in the year of of the dog or if you just have a pooch, treat yourself and/or your pooch to something special because this is your year. The Dog symbolizes loyalty, honesty, intelligence, and a strong sense of right and wrong. For people whose Chinese Zodiac sign is a Dog, you’ll be fighting for the causes you strongly believe in whether it’s on a large scale such as getting involved in political movements or on a smaller scale such as local volunteering and small acts of kindness. Dogs provide emotional support and unconditional love. I believe most people don’t understand what unconditional love is, but dogs get it. If you have a furry best friend, you’ll feel happier, less stressed, and more physically active. Dogs know what’s most important – feeling loved in a safe space that they can call home. Even if you aren’t born in the year of the dog or don’t have a pooch, you can still celebrate the lunar new year by incorporating dog inspired accessories in your home or office decor. Check out some ideas below.
Swap out your existing artwork with some colorful dog prints, photographs, or artwork. If you have a dog and want to hang one large photo of your dog in your living room or bedroom as a focal point, go ahead! What’s better than seeing a picture of your favorite furry animal? It’ll make you smile and feel happy which is what it’s all about. You should experience joy and bliss when you enter a space you call home. Or, create an art gallery wall of smaller photos of your pooch in different frames. Have artwork of your dogs paw prints? Hang it and show off your dog’s creative talents! I love this cute photo of 2 dogs and their owner from Art.com

Adding pillows is a simple and easy way to incorporate dog inspired accessories in your home or office decor. Your pooch will love you for it, especially if you have a special pillow just for your furry best friend. Pillows comes in all kinds of sizes, colors, and materials as well as fun prints. You can have a photo of yourself and your dog printed on the pillow covers or maybe you want to go for a cute drawing of multiple dogs like these fun pillows from West Elm!
For all you dog people who love a good night’s sleep, enjoy comfortable bedding in fun dog prints in solids or patterns. Flannel is a great material for bedding especially during the winter season. It’s soft, warm, affordable and extremely cozy. It’s the perfect bedding material for you to cuddle up next to your pooch. Or, if you want to show the world just how much you love yourself and your best friend, enlarge a photo of yourself and your dog and print it on a duvet cover. If you did the same with pillow covers, then that’s great! You might ask yourself if that’s excessive? It’s not if you feel good about it. Don’t worry about what other people will say or think of if it’s over the top. If it makes you happy and it feels right, then it is right.
