Resident Dog is Back
Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Following the success of the first Resident Dog book, photographer Nicole England travelled throughout the US, England and Mexico for the second volume, Resident Dog: Incredible Homes and the Dogs Who Live There, which lets readers explore beautiful international homes by the likes of Luis Barragan and Kelly Wearstler through their lucky canine residents.
Architectural photography is a beautiful end in itself, capturing the evident artistry that goes into creating a home. But add a dog to the mix and that is when photographs truly come to life. “The presence of a dog allows us to see these homes in a completely different way,” Nicole says. While her first book focused on Australia, in volume two, which was released October 29th this year in Australia, readers will be able to flip the pages to explore 25 of the world’s most stylish homes and the canine companions that live there. As highlighted by the first Resident Dog, the dogs make the photography that much more accessible, allowing the images to almost jump off the page and give a glimpse into what living in such homes is really like.
Renowned designer Kelly Wearstler’s dog, Willie Wearstler, graces the cover from her Malibu, California, home, while eight rescue dogs can be seen enjoying some sun at the striking pink Cuadra San Cristobal in Mexico City designed by Pritzker prize-winning architect Luis Barragan. Frida, Borish, Chich, Kuma, Carlota, Solovino, Chuleta, and Yrrol have nearly 32,000 square meters to run and play, taking full advantage of the roaming property. Then there is Foxylady, a rescue living the life of luxury at a Jonathan Adler-designed turn-of-the-century home in New York City’s Greenwich Village. In the photo, captured by England, Foxy rests easily on a white boucle Vladimir Kagan sofa. Seven-year-old Rosie is another reader favorite, a Cavapoo who loves running off-leash around her family’s renovated country home that dates back to 1730 in the Cotswolds, England.
