There certainly has been a lot going on to say the least. Some despicable, some uplifting and inspiring, some head scratching and some uncomfortable. We are talking about race. And the discussion is hard and charged and complicated and layered with history. We’re gonna be better for it, but it ain’t gonna be easy. And we’ve got a long way still to go...

This week we will be donating 20% of all sales to Amigos al 100 in San Miguel de Allende. Our dear friend Guadalupe Alvarez of Penzi Weddings, (who helped deliver tens of thousands of dollars of aid that we raised directly into the hands of earthquake victims in Oaxaca in 2018), is helping bring aid to those who serve and live around the San Miguel de Allende community. Their goal is to voluntarily get through the pandemic without hunger.

Bringing vibrant, artisan-made creations into your homes is the essence of Stray Dog Designs. Our designs are only ideas, sketches on bits of paper, without our talented team of crafts people. We depend on them and they depend on us.

Pantone Color of the Year - Classic Blue

Pantone Color of the Year - Classic Blue

1 min read

The Stray Dogs LOVE color, as you may know. We each have our favorite and they change week to week. We don't follow color trends or pay attention to the color of the year...perhaps we should. When Pantone released their color of the year for 2020, it caught our eye. Classic Blue is a "timeless, enduring blue" and it looks a whole lot like Down Pour Blue by Benjamin Moore, just a little lighter. 

We have gathered our favorite images of our products painted Down Pour Blue. It is such a versatile color and really packs a punch!
