I’m Stephanie and this is my dog, Mr. Harvey.  Fate brought us together in 2010, and it has been pure bliss ever since.

House of Harvey is my personal space on the web where I share all that is creative, beautiful, well-designed and simply lovely in the (mostly dog) world.  From styled dog photo shoots to travels around the world, I share all the visual pleasantries that come along with owning a dog.

We truly appreciate you stopping by!
