In print: Resident Dog

We are excited to announce that The Frost House along with Banksy our ‘Resident Dog’ are featured in a book due to be released Nov 10th 2020 on Amazon. Last fall photographer Nicole England and her Stylist / Assistant Natalie James paid us a visit from Australia. The duo for 6 weeks traveled the world to capture some incredible homes, by legendary architects and designers (Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, Luis Barragan, Found Associates .. to name a few). Anyway, straight from the website of publisher Hardie Grant (UK) here is what they have to say about the book:

…. showcases over 25 of the world’s most amazing houses, and the dogs that live there.

As an architecture photographer, Nicole England found that the shoots she enjoyed the most were the ones where dogs were present – nothing lightens the mood like a nonchalant pup. However imposing the architecture, some doggy hijinks can immediately bring an element of sociability and fun. With this in mind, Nicole set about setting up her Instagram, Resident Dog, and now this book, Resident Dog [Volume Two], which showcases over 25 of the world’s most amazing houses, and the dogs that live there.

Photographing dogs is not always straightforward, because they don’t always cooperate! The result is that these images end up with a looser, more spontaneous style. Just as every home is different, so is every dog. The photographs showcase amazing architecture and capture the personality of the idiosyncratic personality of each canine. Take a wander around the world’s most stunning homes, from Mexico City to Sydney, London, New York and LA, with the home pooch as your tour guide. Each home will feature several photographs, and an interview with the architect or homeowner.

We are truly humbled, and forever grateful that our house and rescue mutt are preserved on the pages of this beautiful book. Order your copy today.

Lisa Perry & Frost House Inspiration

Just reminiscing about that time you are scrolling Instagram in bed – and a girlfriend tags you in a post and you – squeal a little – because a design Icon has utilized your house for inspiration of one of her projects. Back in July 2019, Lisa Perry shared with the world her inspiration for the pool in a Palm Beach, FL home she designed [and sold for $9.1 million]. Lisa Perry (mid-west girl from Chicago) is the queen of color pop, her work is so fun, playful and total eye candy. This interview and Dwell article really shows the house off.

Here is the instagram post – where you can see the Frost house in the design inspiration for this pool wall. We were so floored to see the house being used for this incredibly beautiful house. We admire her fashion design, and are now even bigger fans of her home design work too. If you want some eye candy on your coffee table – get her book.
