The future is bright bitches!

The future is bright bitches!

Despite a penchant for greige (grey marle + beige), with BREXIT looming, Trump a-tweeting and Spring a-springing we've decided it's time for some colour in our life! Read on for the the best of the bright stuff for you and your mutt.

The Bright Stuff

Break through the February fog and take a walk on the wildside in these super bright threads. Anti-clockwise from top: Colourful kicks by Vans for Opening Ceremony that even this Queen of Darkness could covet (dare I say it, we are in love with....wait for it....the mauve!); Cobalt shades to brighten the gloomiest of days by Italia Independent and Adidas Originals; and finally Rad's CEO sweat, or if you can't quite own it then choose the CEO socks- added humour and also a little doggy respect!

FOODIE

Dine bright. Shine bright.

Having long admired Wonderboo's delicious jewel-coloured packaging, we're now also huge converts to inside the box.

This freeze-dried grain free dog food from Sweden looks good, tastes great (so our dog muse tells us), and is so beautifully packaged it will make your kitchen look better! What's more -  for the washing up averse - there's not a skerrick of residue left in the bowl. The perfect meal for design hounds and their discerning dogs.

And how to serve such an exemplary dish? In delectable crockery by our perpetual fave MrDog of course. These beautiful bowls come in Mondrian colours and are functional too. Ergonomically designed they allow your dog to keep more in their mouth - and leave less on the floor. We feel brighter already.

ART HOUND

Colour(ful) palette...well I never!

While beige in our dress, art-wise we've long had a love of a more decadent palette. So here are our faves for those similarly tickled. Anti-clockwise from top:

1. Robert Bradford (see header). He of the fabulous Flower Dogs shown at London's Rebecca Hossack Gallery last year has fashioned some pups from other types of furry. These puppies aren't new but we've been dying to share them.

2. Fancy a Koons but don't have the space? Shop this balloon dog ring by Singaporean designer, Lauren X Khoo who's produced a collection to coincide with the Chinese Zodiac modern stylie. While it might not be the Year of the Dog, with this on your finger it'll still be a good one!

3. And finally... John Bond. This Brighton-based artist's whimsical dog illustrations never cease to disappoint us. Visit his upcoming show at Unlimited Design Shop and Gallery from 2 March or shop these colourful (and affordable) beasts online. DogArt happy.

WALKIES

Bright and Funny.

Yes, it's our Growlees again but what better way to cheer your pup's gloomy wardrobe and give your park pals a bit of a giggle by adding a Growlee to their collar or harness. There's one for all manner of pup personality. Shop now and we guarantee for a mere £10 (shipping included) your day will be brighter.

Clockwise from top:

#FOMO = Fear of Missing Out. For the pup who won't be excluded from any activity, nor deprived of a morsel that passes your lips. 

I wish I was a Labrador in an Upper Class Family: You've seen those jet set pets, tripping to the Hamptons, New York and Ibiza (in between shoots for Bruce Weber and breakfast in bed). We want to be one of them.

Cute but psycho. But cute: Mad-as-a-hatter but cute-as-a-button, this Growlee sums up our dog muse Frida. And we know she's not the only one who's a little bit cray cray.

AND THAT IS ALL. ENJOY A BRIGHT WEEK!
