Fake a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf with this new wallpaper from The Collection.
This Piet Hein Eek design is a dead ringer for barnyard scrap wood.
Transform your mattress into a hard stone street with Snurk's ever-creative bedding.
This wallpaper brilliantly reproduces the effect of antique shutters, replete with volume, textures and light.
Who says your house doesn't have a freight elevator?
Always wished you had terra-cotta walls? Give the illusion with this wallpaper.
If a designer handbag isn't in your budget this month, go for the look without the price tag by snagging a $65 Thursday Friday bag.
While we like to think we're good at spotting fakes (by which we mean handbags, hairpieces and breast implants), sometimes we enjoy a good visual trick. Hence our newest obsession: trompe l'oeil decor that pairs whimsy and humor with style and design.
For walls If you've always longed for exposed, distressed walls, you can now get the look without demolishing your Sheetrock thanks to industrial-chic wallpaper like this faux-brick version ($42 per 16-foot roll) or this gorgeous scrap-wood variety ($300 per 47-square-foot roll). Alternately, make your place appear more stately with architectural fake-out paper ($133 per 8-foot roll).
For doors Disguise the broom closet as a European passageway or surprise guests with a seemingly empty coat closet made of glueable opaque fabric (both $200). Either way, you'll create the illusion of extra square footage.
For tables and cupboards Wish you had more books and less unsightly gizmos? Skitsch's lovely bookshelf tables and cupboards ($700 to $2,700) look like high-minded bookcases but open to reveal tons of useful storage space.
For beds No headboard? No problem. Blik's wrought-iron wall decal ($40) almost passes for the real thing. Meanwhile, Dutch company Snurk takes the trompe l'oeil idea to the sheets, offering up cozy duvet covers ($76) with bras and socks seemingly strewn across them.
