I think I am getting a little obsessed - obsessed with dogs that is. Our new range of lighting (still in production I hate to say) is a tongue in cheek collection of dog lights. Its amazing how having an animal inspired product in your home immediately lightens the mood and turns it from plain to playful in a nano second. That doesn't just have to have be lights of course both Jonathan Adler and Kelly Wearstler are huge fans of placing animals throughout their installations (see below). Its amazing how an interior that is relatively straight laced gets a big dose of playfulness with the presence of the lifesize dog. Love it - now I just need a piano to put him on and I'm there. Of course real life ones add oodles of character too here is my dog - taken by the fabulous photographer Ray Man who was shooting my house on Monday forÂ the Times Magazine. Excuse her wet beard - she had just returned from her first morning at school and was gasping!
