While browsing the archives over at Martha Stewart, we noticed a recurring theme. The lady loves faux bois! We searched it on her site and got 243 hits, including the tray and towels shown above. Although we like the look, we're a little puzzled by Martha's outpouring of love for a style that can easily come off as cheesy. We think it might have to do with the combination of earthy and polished looks, sort of like Martha herself. Like many people, we're fascinated by Martha's genteel exterior and the grit under the surface.
Still, all psychology aside, we love that faux bois tray and we're itching to try the how-to project from her site.
