How to Incorporate Toile into Your Home

As we mentioned in our previous post, toile is a pattern-based French fabric that usually depicts symmetrical shapes and the European countryside.  From wallpaper to drapery it helps to establish cohesion with the room’s furniture as well as establish the room’s focal point. These historic designs are both vital and versatile.

The toile accent on the back of the chairs and pillows adds warmth and interest to this modern interior. It also relates well to the zebra rug.

Toile fabrics mix easily with many types of patterns and colors. Since toiles are often two toned, then bringing another accented color into the décor brightens the room. By adding another texture and pattern you increase the dimensions to the room.
