Faux Bois (or Fake Wood)
I'm kinda loving these this theme at the moment, its totally kitsch in the best possible way and I have been slowly moving away from pale wood over to the dark side so to speak. It started with a mid century side board which is identical to the one my Nan still owns (but my mother has laid claim to)
So here are some fantastic ways to get that little bit of Faux bois in your life and home.
This cute cushion, small and perfectly formed
This Fridge from Delightfully Tackys' blog is superb! I first saw it over on Elsie's blog, then on another blog which I cant remember (as that is one of my major weaknesses...reading blogs). This is definitely one to go on my possible decor changes for 2011!
These ties just kill me! Possibly the coolest and craziest thing I have ever seen, not sure I could convince hubby to don one of these though.
How about a extremely stylish Laptop Case available from HunterGatherer They also sell lots of other cool wood grain products like, an IPhone Case, Skateboard Deck, Cushion, Magazine Stand and a wallet! They obviously love wood grain too!
These up cycled jars, with faux bois contact paper (or fablon for us UK residents) what a great way for using old jars as a cool storage idea
A little pile of fake logs cushions!
and last but not least Faux Bois Converse Chucks! Could life get any better than these?
