It鈥檚 National Pet Day! While we love our pets to an obsessive degree, anyone with a furry roommate knows that there鈥檚 a certain level of compromise involved in decorating your space. There are dog toys everywhere. Stray kibbles. Ugly but pet-stain-proof furniture. And the dog hair. Oh, the never-ending dog hair. Yet we see so many bloggers and home stylists who seem to have achieved an impossibly stylish, serene lifestyle and have equally enviable dogs. (Who, by the way, never munch on their Monsteras). How do they do it? What do they know that we don鈥檛 know? We had to ask the pros. The good news: It is possible to have a clean, stylish home and a sweet doggo at the same time. Here鈥檚 how two style experts do it.

1. Think outside the dog bed. 鈥淚nstead of purchasing regular old dog beds, try using floor poufs,鈥 suggests blogger and stylist Liz Kamarul. 鈥淭hey鈥檙e great for humans too! We have one (or two) in every room of the house.鈥 Everyone wins: You get to incorporate the colors, patterns, and shapes you love in your space; your pup stays cozy. (Photo via Liz Kamarul)

2. Don鈥檛 be afraid of white. (It鈥檚 surprisingly easy to clean!) 鈥淭his one may be a little controversial, but I鈥檓 in the camp of white bedding when it comes to pet ownership,鈥 says Jacquelyn Clark of Lark & Linen. While your impulse might be to go for darker shades to hide the dirt, that can be problematic. 鈥淚 love that if our bedding does get dirty I鈥檓 able to spot it 鈥 and clean it 鈥 immediately. And for serious messes, bleach is your very best friend,鈥 she says. 鈥淲e try not to let Sage in our bed most days, but that of course flies out the window when she鈥檚 looking extra cuddly.鈥 (Photo via Heidi Lau)

3. Let your pet be as stylish as you are. 鈥淎s an interior designer, I鈥檓 of the firm belief that there isn鈥檛 a thing that you should bring into your home that isn鈥檛 beautiful, or serves a purpose. And this same sentiment should be applied to your dog products,鈥 Clark told us. 鈥淔rom pretty dog beds to beautiful bowls, there鈥檚 no shortage of lovely things to be unearthed.鈥 Some of her favorites? Waggo and Mungo & Maud. (Photo via Snapful Photography)

4. Your furry friend deserves her own storage solutions. 鈥淎 cute basket is your very best friend,鈥 says Clark. 鈥淲e keep one in our living room to corral all of our pup鈥檚 toys. Much like a child, by the end of the day her toys are often sprinkled throughout the entirety of our home, which I secretly find adorable.鈥 Kamarul seconds that suggestion: 鈥淲e throw all of the dog toys into a decorative basket to keep them out of sight but easily accessible.鈥 And with so many cool baskets to choose from these days, there鈥檚 no reason your pet鈥檚 toy storage needs to be an eyesore.
