Pets: Ruff House

Show your furry family members some love with animal-approved updates

Multipurpose Mudroom

In the new year, vow to adore all your spaces! New York-based decorative painter Art McShane of Art Works and Designs, Inc., leads by example with this animal-loving entry and storage center. Using a bone-shape stencil, he applied textured paint to the mudroom walls in a herringbone pattern. “The inspiration was my 1- year-old rescue dog, Milo,” McShane says. Rubber “tail” hooks organize collars and leashes while woven baskets corral toys below a cushioned bench.
