Two rooms with very different personalities share the stage in this Louisville, Kentucky, home.
Laurey W. Glenn
My favorite thing about these spaces was actually one of the most subtle features: the vertical row of pet portraits hanging in the dining room. These paintings of several of the homeowner’s most beloved four-legged friends were painted in oil by artist Madison Cawein (who, incidentally, is the grandson of the well-known Louisville poet of the same name). Pet-centric artwork doesn’t have to be a magnet and a snapshot on the refrigerator. Great black-and-white photographs, drawings, or paintings will become high art when framed well. But no frames that look like bones! Novelty frames make your pet look like a novelty. Give your art a great look that will set tongues and tails wagging.
