Chalkboard camouflage

This family pet attempts to stealthily camouflage himself with the oversized chalkboards in the kitchen, perhaps to catch any nibbles of food that fall off the kitchen island. Tour the rest of the home here.

Greek key kitty

Coco may think her spots and stripes help her blend into the Greek key-patterned stair runner. Though, if anything, it probably does help hide her fur. Tour the rest of the home here.

Durable living

The cottage's family room is "upholstered with indoor-outdoor fabric for maximum durability," which is probably a good idea when the family canine comes to lounge. Tour the rest of the cottage here.

Where the living is easy

This cottage makeover was kept clean-lined and laid back, re-using the wood furniture left by the previous owners and simply reupholstering them. A fuss-free cottage is the perfect spot for the family and pooch to kick back. Tour the rest of the cottage here.

The comforts of home

The Feasby & Bleeks Design office believes, "Function shouldn't trump flair just because the room is an office." This meant including some home comforts, such as the over dyed fuchsia rug, for texture and warmth - and clearly the office mascot approves. Tour the rest of the office here.

They've got this slipcovered

With children, grandchildren and Katie (the homeowners' miniature schnauzer) in mind, this home renovation kept comfort and practicality in mind. Sofa slipcovers are easily thrown into the wash, while the oak hardwood floors are simply wiped clean. Gives this family less time to stress and more time to cuddle up. Tour the rest of the home here.

A terrace for terrier

This urban oasis needs to be just as stylish and functional for the homeowners as it does for their adorable Yorkshire Terrier, Chloe. Case in point: building a cedar doghouse with a fashionably upholstered cushion so she can lounge just as comfortably as her two-legged companions. Tour the rest of the outdoor space here.

Very Important Kitty

You can't get more pet-friendly than when you design a VIP kitty door into your home's structure. With the cat's litter in the basement, the homeowner constructed a mini entrance into the kitchen so that the panelled door could remain closed. Tour the rest of the home here.

A family home

Turning a builder-basic home into a place of their own meant creating a cozy space for their family of five because, as you can see, this place is just as much home to the couple and their two daughters as it is to their favourite puffball, Denver. Tour the rest of the home here.
