Faux tortoiseshell is the animal print elevating every room in the house.
Does anyone ever find themselves diving into a Pinterest hole on a daily basis? It’s easy to aimlessly scroll (and save) everything from recipe ideas and outfit inspiration to all things homeware, and we can’t help but focus on the latter. It’s safe to say a lot of us are looking for a quick and effective (read: affordable) way to update our space. And we’ve found the answer: fun glassware.
Rainbow glassware is brightening up everyone’s home with vases, tumblers and even lamps. Then there’s amber glass accessories that are bringing that retro edge we’re all enjoying on Instagram. Now, the vintage look has been extended with faux tortoiseshell print home accessories stealing the limelight.
A less obvious animal print than classic leopard and zebra, this flecked brown and yellow pattern has been spotted on everything from bowls and vases to carafes and cutlery.
