Taking Another Look At Toile

I’ve been looking for slightly less expensive wallpapers for my laundry room ever since I calculated out the cost of using the Katie Ridder one I had previously posted about.  Recently we got a sample of a grey toile from the new Folie collection by Cole & Sons in a grey colorway and I fell in love! With toile! Me!?

Versaille Toile by Cole & Sons

I’m going to re-use this Jonathan Adler Parker flushmount in brass we had in Andrew’s office (now our master bathroom) and I think the modern fixture paired with the traditional toile will look pretty rad and a little less Little Women.

It got me thinking about modern day toile and so I went on a search for some fabulous examples of how to make this pattern work in today’s interiors:

Mix it with animal hide and modern touches like this light fixture and bold, saturated headboard.

Combine it with graphic, geometrics for a refreshing mix.

Choose to use the print but in a BOLD color. Also note the modern, contrasting floor.

LOVE this mix.

A perfect powder room paper in black and white!

Again, mixing with geometrics, modern touches and a BAD ASS vintage gilt headboard make for a winning combo.

Look for something with a blown up scale for an unexpected twist!

Love the classic, crisp blue and white in an entry. A gallery wall would look amazing running up the stairs!

Use it as an accent in a nook amongst modern furniture.

Chinoiserie toile is even more modern and fun, especially done in this silhouetted style!

The dark walls really make this fabric pop. Also love it combined with that cowhide rug and crisp orange and white bedding.

Love the shades, again, killer with the zebra cowhide.

This is a risk, but I’d say it paid off!
