Gold Bamboo

I have a great secret source for gold faux bamboo pieces that look fabulous for very little expense. But this is just between you and I-we don't want everyone in the blogosphere to know! They are all available online at The Mermaid Hut and the quality is great-I have seen the entire collection and have several myself. The antiqued mirror gives them real elegance and sophistication. These pieces have a glamorous Hollywood Regency flair that would be great in so many rooms from the living room to the bedroom to the bath. Priced from $89.00 for the set of two wall shelves to $399.00 for the stunning five shelf tower or etagere. I even love the way they've styled these spaces with the newspaper wallpaper.

  1. Right again.....this is a great source for affordable bamboo inspired accent pieces. I have two small tables we bought 35 years ago and I still use them, the look never goes out of style. Which is what you keep saying.

  9. Yes! The Mermaid Hut is great. I still really, really want to get that etagere and fill it with huge art books laid horizontally.

    P.S. Thanks again for the tips you sent me. A few pics are up on the blog now :)

  10. I would love to integrate a few of these pieces into my space! They're lovely. I think the little table/shelf that is attached to the wall is my favorite, though -- it's very unexpected. I know I for one will be bookmarking this great source :)

    I hope you have a delightful weekend, Beth.

  18. And yet I cannot figure out - why is it called the Mermaid Hut? But I won't quibble over great design. LOVE your choices here! They have so many wonderful things.

  20. Yes, I need to thank you for introducing me to the Mermaid Hut. You referenced it on another post and I've been checking their site frequently. (1) Lots of great items and (2) great pricing on said items- which is even better! I will definitely be ordering from them-- exactly what has not been determined yet! :-)

  22. Your so kind Beth for sharing...mum's the word.The etagere sent me into a tail spin. I adore gold faux bamboo.My parents were like yours, very modern & danish modern to be exact. I think I have a fancy for gold bamboo or Chinoiserie because it was so taboo in our household. I hope your new fabulous bed arrived safe & sound? Thanks Beth ~

  23. Deb-That's so funny-no Chinoiserie growing up for sure. The bed is stunning-thanks for asking. I'll take photos tomorrow.
