Despite my inclination to gravitate towards a modern aesthetic with midcentury pieces, unique antiques, eclectic styling, peculiar silhouettes, bold graphic prints, and saturated color combinations my southern belle roots are forever embedded in the classic and timeless grace that is toile. This statuesque and stately print lends itself to a subtly regal formality, sprightly in its depictive scenes and varied colorways.
Yes, toile holds a special place in my heart, it was the first fabric I ever loved (after all you can't appreciate the minimalism of modern with out paying homage to the frivolousness of fashions past), and I still get a tinge of jubilation and a dash of enchantment every time I see it used.
It can be a bold proclamation of femininity in punchy tropical hues (Side note: those headboards are genius)
Or a subdued monochromatic backdrop taking on a visual texture in the space (another side note: red lamp base and rich violet shade....love)
It can be a small, cheery accent
Or an all over theme
A modern take for a dramatic statement
Or a classic theme for a familiar antiquity
A subdued yet colorful home accent
Or a sassy and witty fashion statement
Or strikingly theatrical
Colorfully picturesque and florid
Or soft and demure
And here is my favorite....embroidered for dimensional livelihood and whimsy.
As a matter-of-fact I love toile so much I am writing this post in my toile pajama pants.
Keep it classic,
