Keeping a Clean & Stylish Home…With a Big Dog?

Good Questions

Q: Three weeks ago my husband and I rescued an adult mastiff... and it took about one day before I realized that daily sweeping was going to be a must with our hard wood floors! Despite adjustments we've had to make, we love him as much as a dog can be loved. But I've noticed that cleanliness and style quickly began to slip after his arrival.

For example: having to remove throw pillows, slobber all over the office floor, sticking a kennel in my studio, and massive dog beds pushed in front of furniture in the rooms we use most often). So I wanted to find out if any of the readers out there had experiences merging great style with a large dog, and I'd love any tips our Apartment Therapy friends could send my way!
