My earliest memories of my love for design, included a slight infatuation with toile. Maybe its a testament to why I'm still a huge francophile.  A classic pattern that really has never lost its allure only becomes more exciting in the bold colors and sometimes tropical sceneries it is now offered in...

While toile isn't as widely used today, I still get a little ping of happiness everytime I see it used in a beautiful space.

... or tablescape for that matter.

Its really a perfect pattern to make a small bathroom come to life.

... or a breakfast nook.

what do you think? are you all for toile?
