Tuesday’s Trends: Faux Bois

Hello Fabulistas! Sometimes, faux objects are the most fabulous of all. (I’ll get to more of that on holiday decorating in relation to my upcoming HGTV special later!) Who says you need real wood when you can get the style, with a few artistic flairs? I adore all the creative ways you can use faux bois in your home. Here are a few of my favorites that might not cross your mind.

Nested faux bois boxes

I’ve already professed my love for H&M Home. The collection has a fab selection of chic, low-cost pieces that embody trends without big investments. I can always find a use for nested storage boxes. These are ones you won’t mind having out in the open for all to see.

Chrome and faux bois table

This vintage drop leaf table proves that a little faux bois goes a long way. Chrome balances out the light-toned birch look. This would be a chic fit for a tight dining space. I’m looking at you, New Yorkers!

Watercolor faux bois cards

I collect all kinds of stationary because you never know when you’ll need to send a friendly (and fab) letter of encouragement. These watercolor cards are delightful and unique! I have a few friends whom would be delighted to find them in their mailboxes.

Faux bois hand soap

This hand-crafted bar of decorative soap is subtle and cute. I’d love to use this as an adornment in a guest bath of a cabin or mountain retreat. It might make the perfect holiday gift, too!
