Faux and fabulous! Why faking it has never looked so convincing
A desire for the rustic has seen an upsurge in demand for faux oak ceiling beams, according to Jonathan Banister, managing director at Oakleaf Reproductions Ltd.
‘Adding just one reproduction oak beam across the ceiling can gently age a property, giving it character and warmth,’ he says.
The company, which Jonathan’s father founded in 1969, uses resin poured into a mould created from original oak to faithfully replicate the beam.
‘The resin picks up every detail of the original. We then hand paint and stain it,’ says Jonathan
A faux sable runner on the bed gives a luxe feel and Helen Moore is the best in the business, (£240, cuckooland.com). Or you could sink into a faux wolf fur beanbag
While you’re at it, forget the hassle of real flowers. Fakes will not wilt, die, disappoint or leave your vase full of muck.
