For those DIYers out there, here is a fun tutorial for creating your own Faux Bois stamp to imprint on fabric or paper. Martha Stewart has a paint kit which can be used to replicate the look on furniture or walls.
What are your thoughts about Faux Bois? Is this trend facing it's final days or still a look worth using?
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design?

The look of Faux Bois (the term has French roots and means "false wood") continues to be a healthy design trend these days, which is amazing as it has been on the scene for quite a few years. My first exposure to it was thanks to style diva Martha Stewart (who may even been the reason it became a trend). There is something classic about the look and I can honestly say I am not tired of it. Faux Bois can be found on everything from textiles to furniture and is organic, yet bold and graphic. Even just a touch of it can make quite a statement.
