With eight dogs in residence at Cuadra San Cristobal, the iconic home designed by Luis Barragán in 1968, here, there is plenty of space to go around. Frida, Boris, Chich, Kuma, Carlota, Solovino, Chuleta and Yrrol are a harmonious bunch, who love to embark on long walks around the home’s grounds

The photographer behind everyone’s favourite coffee table book has released an equally adorable sequel

In a bid to put a more personal spin on some of the most impressive interiors and architecture around the world, Melbourne-based photographer Nicole England sought a fresh perspective. From her experience as an architecture and interior photographer, England had noticed how a home really came alive when its fluffy resident wandered into shot, and so, she decided to make it her focus.

In her first Resident Dog book, England photographed 25 homes across Australia, while for this, her second, the photographer looked further afield, documenting homes and their furry residents in places as far as the United States, Britain and Mexico as well. While her unique focus gave her unprecedented access to some incredible, private spaces, it also proves the photographer’s point: that our four-legged friends transform a house into a home. 

FoxyLady is the rescue dog of a glamorous New York couple who have filled their maximalist Greenwich townhouse with a wonderfully eclectic mix of tones, textures and sculptural touches. Although her breed is unknown, FoxyLady brings a certain je ne sais quoi to the home, from her charismatic presence to her love of luxuriating on the sumptuous furnishings.
Rosie the seven-year-old cavapoo loves nothing more than trotting around the gardens (designed by none other than Lady Mary Keen) of her family’s RIBA-winning, sprawling country home in the Cotswolds. Finally, she has the space she needs to run around unimpeded by the boundaries of her city house in London
A dog sure to have sophisticated tastes in contemporary art (so curated is her owner’s collection) Miracle lives in Braelin, the historic Sydney home designed by Donald Esplin in 1918. The heritage nature of this home means that Miracle is often only allowed to snooze on one of her two cosy dog beds (instead of the furniture) but she still loves a cuddle with her owner, co-founder of Voiceless, a global institution for animal protection. 
The fitting abode for four rescue dogs, Silvertop is a home with an interesting history, originally designed by architect John Lautner for Kenneth Reiner before the latter became bankrupt and the house was left to languish. It was then rescued by a family who made it liveable for them and their motley crew of pups, Daisy, Iggy, Clover and Ambrose Bear, adopted from different California shelters. And in this monolithic, concrete-covered house, it’s these resident dogs that make it feel like a home. 
In this contemporary Malibu beach house festooned in tactile details and sculptural furnishings, mixed-breed pup Willie fits perfectly into the palette. Whether he’s swanning around the Kelly Wearstler-finished interiors or sunning himself in his favourite spot on the deck, this laid-back pooch is living the life.
