Toile Y'all!

Photobucket


I love toile. Love. It. I think I might have a slight obsession with it. After taking pictures of all the toile in my house, I think it's safe to say I have too much. What do you think? (Just so you know - even if you tell me I have too much, I'm not taking any away!!!)

I have to start with my FAVE toile pieces - my kitchen cabinet knobs and drawer pulls. Are they not the cutest things ever? (The pics aren't great - the toile is blue and white)

Next, the inside of my china cabinet/hutch/thingy is lined with toile wallpaper. Of course, I got this idea from The Nester.

My dining room chairs that were a hideous plaid, but I recovered in toile myself. Don't look too closely - you might see the plaid through the toile. I was too lazy to remove the original fabric. But hey - the beauty is in the imperfections, right?



Photobucket



My new little end table that had a glass inset that is now covered in the same wallpaper that lines the hutch. Wow - I don't think that sentence was grammatically correct!

Oh, these are another of my favorite things in my whole house - the toile lampshades on my flea market chandelier!

The bench I got at HobLob for like 75% off because it had dirt on it. Came right out with spot remover at home.

And of course, the toile curtains. Which I do realize I hung too low. I didn't have the energy to re-hang the rod that came with the house. I really need to do that.

I think that about covers it. I think I'm a little toile'd out - how about you? If you aren't, and you'd love to see how other people use toile in their homes, jump on over to Pretty Organized Palace for her Toile Party! It'll be fun!

Oh yeah, I'm definitely a toile girl. I never get sick of it. It's so timeless and elegant.

BTW, congrats on your big yard sale $$$. Makes me want to have one so I can make some extra green!

Amanda said...

You really need some toile bedding! I've sat in those chairs and I never would've known that you didn't remove the plaid fabric.

My favorite is the chandelier in your kitchen. Aren't the shades toile?

Hey Amanda! your kitchen pulls are fantastic! love all the great ideas...thanks!

Rachel said...

Toile is my mistress I've decided. I love it. I really like your pulls in the kitchen. That would be an easy way to spice up a kitchen in our rental house. Then we could put the ugly ones back before we move. :) Have a beautiful day.

I love the toile on your end table for a fun pop of color, and your lampshades are sweet.

Kimba said...

Whooooweeee! You are the toile queen! Love it! Especially that bench. It's beautiful!

I'm so glad that you like your pin. I sold so many of them and so I saw so many names and I wondered which of my "regular readers" then were. I'm glad that one was you.

Love your toile. I have some lampshades out of a very similar yellow and blue toile. So far, I haven't gotten tired of toile.

It's all so pretty. I've never seen those beautiful knobs and pulls before. I'm getting ready to redo my cabinets and those are looking might fine.

That bench is adorable!

Oh my goodness, toile drawer pulls! I have never seen that before, they are wonderful. I loved your hutch too. The Nester is so great for giving inspiring ideas that we can actually do! I love that. Your home is beautiful.
