Meet Julia Amory - the founder of India Amory, a lifestyle and home goods brand working with authentic Indian block prints that brings beautiful textiles to the tables, closets, and more to homes around the country.
We caught up with Julia to learn more about her dogs, Grace and Hudson, and her India Amory x Dogwood bed. Instructions for how to order an India Amory cushion cover for your Dogwood bed are at the end!
Tell us about your dogs! Name, breed, size, age? How would you describe their personalities?
We have two dogs, a 9 lb English Cream Dachshund named Gracie and an enormous lab mix named Hudson. Gracie is the boss - very demanding, naughty and disobedient and Hudson is a happy blob who might be part sloth. They're very good friends and she bosses him, and everyone else in the house around all day.
Where in your home is your Dogwood bed? Can you tell us about the room a bit?
Our Dogwood beds are upholstered in India Amory Legume and work perfectly in our kitchen in Southampton which is a similar color scheme. The high gloss finish of the beds echoes the painted white floors and look clean and crisp in the space. Since it's a room we all gather in when people are cooking it's so nice for the dogs to have their own chic place to hang as well.
What fabric did you choose and how does it work with the existing design elements? What inspired the overall combination?
The fabric we chose was what precipitated Emily and my idea to offer Dogwood beds in India Amory fabrics - we've been friends for a long time and it's been so fun to collaborate and bring our two companies together. I chose Legume as it's one of my favorite IA prints, hides dirt and looks crisp and perfect in our green and white kitchen.
What is your general approach to living with dogs? When designing your home was there anything you took into consideration given your dogs?
Dogs rule our life....they're all over ALL of our furniture. In an attempt to conceal paw prints we use vintage quilts on most of our upholstery and throw them in the wash or switch them out weekly....prints are also a great way to conceal evidence of dogs which makes the IA fabrics the perfect option for your Dogwood bed!
