Home Decor for Dog Lovers from Minted.com

This post is sponsored by the online stationery store, Minted.com. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the art collection, but Rubicon Days only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers; minted.com is not responsible for the content of this article.

If you're anything like me, your love of dogs extends to your clothing, accessories and home decor. I have canine coffee mugs, art work and t-shirts and unique items with dogs on them always catch my eye. I was recently introduced to Minted's new art collection, offering a variety of prints from a changing collection of artists. I will of course be focusing on the dog-themed art, which ranges from contemporary to whimsical, from photography to painting, but they have art in many categories to suit every taste. I found something for every room of my dog-friendly home! 



For my guest bath, American Idyll 2 by Annie Seaton. I have an ocean theme with retro-style surfing postcards and I think this would fit in perfectly. I love the textures and the quiet moment between the girl and her dog on the beach. Prints are available framed or unframed in a choice of sizes. 


For my kitchen - Pit Stop by Misty Hughes. We all know not to leave our dogs in cars in the summertime, but we'll imagine this a cool day and the owner is coming right back with some tasty diner food! I love the colors and the vintage nostalgia of this photograph. 


For my bedroom, Fox Shadow by Natalie Groves. The Ginger Sisters always remind me of foxes, and I love the unique perspective and soft colors of this wild cousin of theirs, slipping elusively out of sight. One of the coolest things about the art from Minted.com is the option of customization - you can choose your paper, frame, and some of the designs even come in different colorways! 



For my living room, Runny Bunny by Eve Schultz. I have a purple sofa and Ruby is a member of the local bunny patrol, so I think this would be a perfect fit. I think the symmetry and simplicity of the design give it a very modern appeal. I would frame it with the distressed charcoal stain. 




I think that Play Date by Michelee Scott - an uplifting scene of dogs playing on the beach - would look great on my landing. I have an ongoing bird theme throughout my house and think the flock in the sky and the shadows on the sand are both striking and serene. 



It would be difficult to choose just one, and they are adding new designs all the time through crowdsourced design competitions with artists from all over the world submitting their work. Minted's new art collection can be viewed here. Along with art prints, minted.com also has darling personalized stationery, customizable pet holiday cards and dog walker business cards!

  3. I love that Pit Stop. You’ve got it. Our condo is a mix of cat and cow decor. Pop has always had a thing for the beauty of cows. Cows are in the kitchen—except the fridge cos peeps don’t eat them—and cats own most of the rest of the condo.

    1. Cats and cows - I like it! I like bovine imagery myself and have a couple pieces featuring bulls.

  4. Oh goodness, I love all of these. The one thing I don't have dog related in my house is any canine wall art. I have pics of my dogs hanging up, but I could definitely use some beautiful paintings. I'm like you, as you know - dog tea cups, coffee mugs, shirts, totes, jewelry...the list goes on!

    1. I have a print that says "Home is Where the Dog Is" over their leash rack that I adore. Soon I will have the girl and her dog on the beach and another with a girl and a wolf (Little Red Riding Hood) that I found! I have a lot of animal artwork (birds and horses, mainly) but I can't wait to add some canids.

    1. That's a pretty one, Jen! They have an almost overwhelming selection - I didn't stray far from the animal-themed ones, but there are some abstracts, landscapes and typography prints that I love, too.
