It's one of those classic designs that just stays on trend! Can you ever get tired of toile?
I've always had a fondness for it! I'll never forget the first time I laid eyes on a piece of toile, straight from France, when I was doing an internship at Ethan Allen.(many moons ago) It was a multi colored pattern of children and lambs, a real pastoral scene.
It opened my eyes to the wonders of fabric! You could say that it sparked my imagination also!
Now, I am always on the look out for fun ways to use toile,

in home decor,
as well as at tea party time,
I will admit I find myself returning to red & white toile patterns! In fact, I can't get enough of them!
I'm always visiting this bathroom on her blog!
I have a very small powder room with a tiny vintage corner sink that would look lovely like this!
And you can adore it for years and years because it just seems to get better with age.
And red & white is easy to live with all year long! You can highlight the red over the holidays,
play up the white to soften it for the summer
and it mixes so well with other patterns!
I'm in the process of hanging new curtains in my bedroom to coordinate with a
reverse toile comforter. (Usually toile patterns are printed on a white or creme
background and the scene or floral pattern is in a single color.
My comforter has the red background and the floral is white.)
I was inspired by Carolyn's room here!
I'll keep my eyes open for more toile fun and in the meantime, you will see black & white toile all over my business cards and product packaging because I am indeed hooked!
