trend alert: faux bois

From cakes to invitations, ceilings to walls, side tables to bed frames, tableware to pillows, rugs to  fabrics, fashion to laptop sleeves, faux bois (wood grain) pattern is everywhere! And I like. Easy to DIY, this textured finish looks great in vibrant colors too.

Martha Stewart takes up a level by crafting chocolate in faux bois pattern.


I’d love to give it a try on a small surface like placemat or runner. I took a textures and finishes class at NYU and faux bois was one of many that we learned to create. Wonder if it will come back easily to me. This tutorial should serve as a handy refresher.

How do you feel about this trend? Like? No like?
