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.
Hermes scarf in Jardins des Metamorphoses
Soup tureen from The Twiggery
Toile apron from Williams & Sonoma (old)
Cute little paper napkins from Denver’s The Tended Thicket on South Gaylord
Tray that I lined with toile printed paper
Savannah print potholder from Working Class Studio
I love that anything toile adds a soft, Old World touch, yet seems unstuffy in that the scenes are almost always pastoral.
