Pet Zone

Both attractive and functional, an area underneath the home’s stairs to the upper level was transformed into this handy pet nook that makes it easy to organize and store supplies for furry friends, and also gives pets a cozy place of their own to relax in this modern mountain escape.

User-Friendly Door

Made from pine with a dark stain, designer Brian Patrick Flynn’s team created and installed this low user-friendly Dutch-style door that closes off the pet nook from surrounding spaces in the home. Outside the pet nook door sits an industrial-style iron pet feeder with raised ceramic dog food bowls that gives pets a posh way to enjoy mealtime.

Clutter Control

A tallboy dresser with clean modern lines and four spacious drawers provides a spot for storing everything from favorite pet toys and to cat and dog sweaters, helping keep the nook free from clutter.

Fun Art

Graphic art with professionally hand stretched cotton canvas over a solid wood frame depicts a feline resembling Don Quixote wearing a designer pashmina scarf, adding a touch of whimsy to the wall above the dresser. The top of the dresser includes decorative accessories, dog books and a modern and edgy geo cut table lamp for illumination.

Easy Living

This wider view of the pet nook shows how the space enjoys close proximity to the lounge area of the great room, in this mountain modern style retreat designed for easy living for all members of the family.

Sofa for Snoozing

Made from washable linen with a solid wood frame, a gray pet sofa gives Fido a comfortable spot to get cozy and take a nap. Above the sofa hangs a brown bone-shaped woven wicker pet toy basket that decorates the wall and provides a way to corral small toys and keep them off the floor.

Chow Time

The pet nook at HGTV Dream Home 2019 comes stocked with a wonderful supply of wet and dry gourmet dog food made for the most discriminating canines. A white feeder and storage container cabinet has three hand-dipped ceramic cannisters on top with air tight rubber seals that keep treats fresh and pests out.

Double Duty Door

The handsome custom pine door on the pet nook serves a couple of purposes. “I didn’t want the pet space to be hidden, I wanted it to actually be part of the design,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “Doing a half door immediately lets everyone know there is a special space tucked below the stairs for pet supplies and as a pet apartment, almost.” The pet nook also includes a handy doggie door to the outside.

Stylish and Functional

A sculptural off-white wall mounted coat rack constructed of easy-to-clean plastic has five sturdy hooks that flip up when not in use for a seamless profile, offering a simple and stylish way to hang dog leases and keep them within easy reach.
