Faux get about it…

by Shelly

As I’m sure you are aware, if you spend any sort of time on design and decorating blogs, that faux bamboo furniture is HOT! There’s just something about the look that really gives a room a nice punch of freshness and whimsy. I have been into the bamboo look for probably about ten years now. Living in Southern California the trend in interiors has been leaning towards a coastal look for a while and faux bamboo obviously fits right in. Just look at how this trend makes these rooms sing…

The ever popular Hollywood Regency bamboo dining chair. So pretty with the industrial lights over the kitchen table and those gorgeous (I want them NOW) slipcovered wingchairs. You can find a great little chair just like the one in the picture here!

Gorgeous all white with a shot of spring green, cottage bedroom by Tom Stringer for House Beautiful. Beds like this can be found on the cheaps if you search Craigslist and Ebay! A coat of paint really revives the look!

This entryway features a bamboo piece that is more “island” and less “regency”. I wonder if a piece like this will look more timeless than one that is more obviously regency style. I fear the Hollywood Regency look is going to just scream 2008-2010 in just a few years. But I love it…and so do a lot of other people. Hopefully it will stay a classic.

Such a cute little nightstand between twin beds. It keeps the room from feeling too formal or fussy.   

forgot where I found this one! 

And finally a beautiful entryway by the guy that does interiors that perfectly embody the So Cal look….or at least the one that is so popular in South Orange County! And that shell mirror…LOVE LOVE LOVE! I tried to makes one myself a year or so ago. No bueno. Hardest thing I have ever tried to do. Now I know why they are so expensive!

Love the long narrow table in the first pic. I like faux bamboo furniture too – especially chairs.
