On A Whim

5.11.2015

If y'all have been a follower of mine for any length of time then you know that I am a huge fan of Charles Faudree's design. He was always decorating with dogs in his homes. I am a huge fan of using dogs in my decor, too. 

I had these two vintage framed dog paintings, that I won in an auction in France, in two separate locations in my house. I just didn't know where to use them together. Then an idea popped in my head the other day and on a whim I tried my idea out.

I removed the painting that was over this chest and hung the two dog paintings.

I love them hanging together. I wish the paper in the top one wasn't so yellow, but that happens with age.

You can read the first post about the artist information here.

One is black and white.

And this one in color. I love them both.

Early morning sun coming in.

You can see where one of the paintings was located ever since I got it here.


I never shared the other one much, but it hung behind the chair next to the French doors in the sitting room. 

There is another change in here that I will share soon.

Be sure to pin it!

Have a fabulous week!

See how I transformed this brass lamp base.

  2. I like them there so much. That was a good decision. We have had two dogs, English Spring Spaniels, just like in one of the paintings.

  6. I LOVE the prints there....I so remember you being drawn to those gorgeous prints in France and so glad that you won them in the auction....They belong together for sure....Looks great. I am enjoying going throughout the new Charles Faudree book...so happy that Jennifer Jordan created that book...such a wonderful tribute to the late and great Charles Faudree.

  7. I love the 2 pictures hung together. they make a nice statement that way. I even like that they don't perfectly match. they look more like they've been acquired over time rather than a matching set.

  8. I love them! I don't think I would have thought to hang them underneath with the heads facing opposite ways, but they look perfect!

  9. Hi Kim~
    I love how you painted the ceiling in your room
    It makes the room look so cozy, I know this is about the dog prints, but I couldn't help but notice the ceiling. I love it... And the dog prints are so pretty.
    Have a great day.

  14. Love dog portraits...probably cuz I love dogs. I think people who love dogs like to use them in their decor, and it certainly is something Charles would have approved of!

  15. They look perfect paired together Kim. You could always have the one scanned into a computer and printed on white paper if you would like it to perfectly match the lighter one. Just and idea !

  29. That entire vignette looks great together! The pictures, the plates, the chest, glass jars on the floor with your vintage bowls...it really looks as if you picked all those out to go together! Looks fab as usual:D
