As much as we love it that our kitty sleeps under the blankets with us, we would love the option of her sleeping elsewhere (especially when it's hot). We love this truly minimal kitty bed and the possibility of making a larger one for dogs!
We found images of this great plywood box turned kitty retreat in the ATLA Flickr Pool from hindsvikvintage. We're curious to see the rest of the house, but we're suckers for plywood in interiors so we love the little peek they've given us. (For their full bedroom makeover, check out this post on Mid Century to Modern: Before and After Bedroom).
This pet bed is a great, easy diy that means you can customize the size and shape (and to an extent, the material) that you're using. And for fans of modernism/minimalism, you can't get much better than a simple utilitarian box.
Have you diy'ed a modern looking pet nook or bed?
