If you describe your design style as simple & elegant meets bold & funky, this one’s for you.  Shannon from Madigan Made made a non-traditional fall centerpiece by giving a grouping of candles a studded, faux bois (French for “fake wood”) makeover.  The contrast of wood against metal is stunning, making the simple design far more than the sum of its parts.  I love the soft-meets-hard aesthetic!  [how to make studded faux bois candles]
