Did Someone Say Toile Y'all?

I guess my Toile radar was on today. Not only did I stumble upon a new great blog "Pretty Organized Palace" of all days to visit she is hosting a Toile Party. Toile, like plaid, is something I just can't get enough of! Who does toile better than one of my favorite catalogs Pierre Deux? There new Spring Catalog came out just a couple weeks back and I of course have already drooled over the pages more than one. I love this toile upholstered day bed. So elegant and I would love to curl up there with a good book. Morning tea and afternoon tea on this lovely settee? What could be more perfect?


I love toile panels. These make the room.

Of course I had to share my in the works toile dining room. Hint hint my draperies get installed this Friday!!! I can't wait! In the time being here is a peek at the toile walls.






Here are just a few of my toile pillows.



Here is a picture of my master bed. Outfitted in toiles, florals and plaids. This was taken at my last home. I need to get some current pictures of it in this home.






Our last home also had toile in the downstairs guest bath. Floor to ceiling panel at the bath tub. This reminds me I still have quite a bit if this fabric. I better dig it out and see what I can create. No good toile should ever go to waste!








Here is a quick snapshot of my daughters room. I had to take the million and two stuffed animals off her bed to get this picture. Tiffany Box Blue in toile.




Because this post was so last minute I did not get to plan for it and was only able to get a few shots of one of my very favorite things "TOILE". Thanks for Pretty Organized Palace for hosting such a fun event. To see more lovely toile visit her blog at http://prettyorganizedpalace.blogspot.com/2009/03/toile-party.html

  13. Hi KD...toile has my heart too...I had a bedroom in our former home that was toiled from walls to bedding to drapes to lighting..the realtor told me I should change it because buyers wouldn't like it...Boo on her! My house sold in 3weeks to the 3rd looker & the 2nd looker came back to make an offer, so what did that realtor know...
    LOL...Your home is lovely & be sure & post when your new drapes are up! ;- Bo
