Totally Toile

I kind of really like Toile de Jouy even though I associate it most with French Country, which is not necessarily my stile.  My newly found attraction to toile  began when I spotted this toile quilt at Target (Tarzhay, if you will) several months ago.  Once I finally commit to making my toile purchase for our guest bedroom, I will apply it in a way I’ve never seen before. Here are some images to get me going.

The black background with white print is a stray from the traditional white background toile. The purple lamp shade with red base add some cool factor.

Such a cool, retro use of toile. Love the color scheme.

I also used this picture in my Show Your Stripes post but just in case you only focused in on the stripes, check out the toile headborad, bedskirt and roman shade. This is the epitome of how toile can be utilized in a hip, refreshing new way.

Toile pillows add a traditional element to the streamlined effect of the room.

Okay, so this is a little girl’s room and obviously I’m not a little girl (though this room definitely makes me wish I still was), but I love the use of pink toile, turquoise, bamboo chandelier and silhouette pillows. It’s all so classic yet contemporary.
