Is it somewhat ironic that the day after I post about seeing the same thing over and over again in the design world (see yesterday’s post), that I stumble across and buy what is surely one of the most recognisable decorating items around today: chinese foo dogs.
I’ve seen red ones and white ones but the turquoise dogs are the ones we see all over the design blog-world. They always look great, though. The ones I bought today were ridiculously cheap because of some small repair work on one of the paws- though you only notice it up close:
My photo (above) needs some flowers desperately! But you get the drift anyway.
Talk about a pop of colour (above)! The foo dogs provide just enough of the turquoise to accent against the orange.
Okay, so there’s no actual foo dogs in this room (above), but the same turquoise ceramic in the horse and figurine give a similar effect.
