Domino Magazine (my most favorite decorating and living magazine in the world) did a feature on toile in this month's holiday issue. Now, let me preface on saying that usually decorating with a toile print (French in origin, usually a complex, pastoral scene featuring a combination of scenery, human figures, and sometimes animals) is done in a very traditional, pattern on pattern way and it's not my style. At all. However, this modern twist on toile really caught my eye. So here are some quick shots to get you interested then you can go to www.dominomag.com to find some more ideas (some a little more traditional yet, still hip).
Above, this black and white toile is fabric applied the wall. Even though this is a complicated and usually expensive procedure it really warms up a room. Below you will find a yellow and white toile wallpaper that is more of a classic toile on the wall application. Side note: white silhouette clock is fab - we have a black one that is similar :)
Black and white fabric: Pierre Frey Cotton "Satin Coutances" in Negatif about $140/yard
Yellow and white wallpaper: "Harlam Toile de Jouy" $172/roll, Studio Printworks
