Toile de Jouy
Apr 14th, 2012 | By Manuela | Category: Home & Food Blogs
As many of you know, I’ve loved and used toile de jouy (simply known as toile) in my home for many many years. So I found it very funny that Pottery Barn is now carrying toile kitchen towels, toile aprons, curtains, pillows and a really pretty toile chair (WANT that chair).
For a while toile was sort of “out” but I suppose now that Pottery Barn is carrying toile it’ll be back “in”. Not that I care about that as I decorate with what I love and not with what’s popular (like I cannot get into that chevron pattern that’s so hot now – just looks like zig zags to me).
Since it’s one of my favorite patterns I thought I’d share some yummy toile inspiration:
Like this piece I made for my bedroom.
Look at this gorgeous toile fabric used to upholster this Frenchy chair!
Isn’t this toile sink skirt pretty. I really love skirted sinks whether they’re in the kitchen or bathroom.
I’ve often thought about adding some toile wallpaper to either my dining room or bedroom.
My favorite toile pillow and toile throw.
Toile has been around since the 16th century and has gone through many stages of being popular and unpopular – it’s “in” then it’s “out” (say it like Heidi Klum on Project Runway). Whether or not it’s once again on an upsurge of popularity doesn’t matter to me – I’ve always loved it! And always will!
