My own home has a multitude of toiles incorporated into the design. I just can't say no. My favorite toiles have dogs in them. Offer me any fabric with a toile influence and a dog and I'm finding a way to use it!!
The photo from the profile for this blog is a wallpaper by Thibaut that I have in a powder room. When we bought this house it had a black toilet and a black granite floor. Yikes! I had to figure out a way to make them work for us, since I really didn't want to replace them. When I found this paper, I realized that I already had it bookmarked into a "use someday?" file. So up it went and it totally changed the room. Don't you just love the raspberry vines and fruit in it? I don't use much wallpaper, but I feel that a powder room is the perfect place for this decorative statement, since you don't have furniture, or much fabric in those rooms.
This blue toile is my all-time favorite fabric and it is by Brunswick and Fils. I have it in our tv room for the skirted table, a cushion on a wooden chair, lots of pillows, and anyplace else I could use it!
This is the same fabric in a different color way. It is from a different part of the scene. I have used it in our basement family room to cover a chair and ottoman.
I used this toile in our master bedroom for the duvet, to cover two chairs, and on two large European shams. It is so subtle and the colors are wonderful. The dark color can read as black or dark brown.
This toile covers a sofa that I'm not really using right now. It's an oldie but goodie by Waverley. I will probably soon recover it in a cream linen slipcover so that I could go back to this print if I want, since it is in such good shape.
I'll soon be posting about toiles I love to use on my tabletops.
Follow me into the world of design one post at a time and leave me a comment about each one. I'd love to hear from you.
P.S. Thanks for all the technical help, Amy!
