Home Works: Best picks of domestic design

Stylish & Practical - $99
New from Crypton, the Throver, a stylish, durable throw that’s both soft and comfortable. Use it as a blanket to protect a sofa or as cover for your car’s back seat. The Throver is not only odor-resistant, it also offers complete stain, moisture, mildew and bacteria protection, plus cleans up easily in the washing machine. It measures 48 by 54 inches and comes in 10 designs, including patterns from artist William Wegman.

Paint-by-Numbers 2.0 - $40
Paint-by-numbers is back, and this time, you get to chose from your own fave photos when you’re deciding which masterpiece to re-create. Paintapic makes the whole process simple and inexpensive. Upload a photo, pay $40 and make a few design decisions. Before you know it, you’ll receive a 14-by-18-inch canvas, a set of paints (from Palmer Paint, maker of the original paint-by-numbers kits) and two brushes. And off you go, dabbing a portrait of your beloved pooch.

Dapper Dogs - Pillow cover $29, Plates $24
Need a touch of art for your bed or table? Scott Lifshutz’s whimsical watercolors are just the ticket. The Dog Daze Pillow Cover (14 by 36 inches) is 100 percent machine-washable cotton, and the Appetizer Plates (3.5 by 5.5 inches) come in a set of four and are dishwasher and microwave safe.
