l&m studio

I know that I was supposed to let go of the wood grain trend a long time ago, but every now and then it grabs me again. These sweet ceramic wood grain pieces from¬†L&M Studio would be so pretty for a summer get together. The wood grain cheeseboard above is my favorite, but the birdhouse is pretty darn adorable, too. If I were a bird, I would definitely love the option to nest in something that cute. L&M sells these pieces, along with many others, at their Etsy shop right here. And for a blast from the past, here’s my faux bois mini-trend post from 2006 (so long ago!). xo, grace


I like the peonies but I see a place to park a skein of yarn while knitting. How handy would it be to have yarn spooling out of the white ceramic container?

I love the print! Little interesting pieces like that (particularly the ceramic boxes) are perfect accent pieces that add a little character to an end table.


i like ceramic that looks like wood – reminds me of concrete casts. can’t wait to see what they do next!


FAUX – BOIS! FAUX – BOIS! FAUX – BOIS! (Personally, I can’t get enough of the stuff.) FAUX – BOIS! FAUX – BOIS!


I just can’t give up the grain either. If wood grain is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
