My love affair with toile

I can’t remember when I first learned of toile…perhaps from a table cloth Mama Chris had…perhaps from a paper napkin I recall from a tea party…but I remember loving the soft sketches of idyllic rural scenes and their coming in a variety of pretty hues. Looking around now, the print can be found in almost every room of my home.

I love that anything toile adds a soft, Old World touch, yet seems unstuffy in that the scenes are almost always pastoral.
