Meet Dalilah, our four-year-old English Mastiff.
The American Kennel Club describes this breed as “a combination of grandeur and good nature as well as courage and docility – powerful yet gentle and loyal.”
Our girl is all that and more. Dalilah’s got a discerning eye, and she knows her way around a design studio. She’s an invaluable resource at Elizabeth Monical Design, and I’m often tempted to bring her along when I meet with clients for the first time. But her considerable size – coupled with my height – might be a bit too much for someone we’ve never met, so she runs the office while I’m out.
I’ll be turning the blog over to Dalilah on occasion, as she’s great at sniffing out pet-friendly products that are at home in any well-designed environment. You can definitely have great pets and great style – the two are not mutually exclusive.
Her first ‘big paws up” find – Crypton. This line of fabrics, furniture and more is nothing short of amazing. It doesn’t stain, trap smell, break down or hang on to pet hair.
Mind blowing! What’s more, it’s available in modern patterns and solids that come in soft suede and velvet-like textures.
I’ve used this fabric to create cushion covers for my existing sofa. Dalilah says it best: “I can lay on the couch, and Elizabeth doesn’t get mad because it’s not covered in hair. I also enjoy eating treats on the couch, but no one would ever know it by looking at the fabric.”
I mean, what dog doesn’t deserve a Throver?
