Bulldog couture part 2: Quirky surprises for stylish interiors

We couldn’t leave the topic of bulldog-inspired interiors without taking a whistlestop tour around the seemingly endless possibilities of supersizing our bulldog collection. Oh yes, to go with your new English bulldog chair from Brit upholsterer Joanna Mac, you can snap up a whole plethora of bulldog gear. We’ve picked out a cool top 5 to share with you here.

1. I may not have a bulldog myself but I’m getting my paws on a couple of these cute candles. Admittedly, they’re pretty bright – but I reckon they have the cool factor if they’re placed cleverly in the right spot at home. My top tip is to stay clutter-free when displaying an item like this, to avoid the ‘granny’s sideboard’ look. £19.99

2. Bloom Boutique’s bulldog door knob adds a touch of dog-inspired style to a chest of drawers or a cute detail to a kids’ room. I love a quirky surprise in a stylish interior and this really fits the bill. £15

3. If you have a home office – or a dog-loving teenager – this bulldog lamp is top of my list to bring a bit of humour to your home. Cast in resin with a high-gloss finish, he actually beats the classic Abigail Ahern for me. £98.90

4. The most inexpensive and speedy way to update your home is to cast off your old cushions and snuggle up with a new design. Check out this Amy Brocklehurst hand-drawn bulldog linen cushion from her Tom, Dick and Harry collection. What a face! £40

5. For children who need a night light when they go to bed, this charming bulldog ceramic lamp is the perfect solution, casting a warm glow over the room. £37.57

When incorporating dog-inspired furnishings into your home, try to stick to one or two key pieces to accessorise your space. Avoid overdoing this look – less is definitely more here!
