A typical toile pattern is a classic design pattern used in interior design. It’s also a bit outdated but can certainly be used in ways that complement contemporary design without being overwhelming.
Here are some examples of “not your mama’s toile” and what to look for when using. Incorporating some or all of these useful design tips will help to modernize the look.
1. Use a large-scale design.
3. Use unexpected colors (via WalkUpBlog.com).
5. Toile is classic for a child’s room but can also be used for adult decoration, as vintage style. Our new Alice in Wonderland Collection, featuring Toile, Toppers and Headboard can all be used in ways above. The pattern scale is larger than your typical toile, standard colors can be customized and the Headboard in conjunction with the Toppers, can all be used as accent pieces and the wallcoverings can go over each other without causing damage when removed and reused.
Here’s a great run down about the history of toile from Design Sponge & what makes it timeless.
