"Reds are more dramatic." Accent fabrics and trims can change toile from formal to casual. "Stripes for example, can make toile feel more formal, as can a braided type of enhancement or silk trim." Barwick explains. "Stripes can create a very country French look." Toile with a white background and an airy or wispy pattern can make a room appear more spacious. When it comes to toile, "use as much as possible," interior designer Catherine Callahan advises. "It makes the room cohesive and creates a sense of serenity and proportion. And it looks very finished." "Toile is such a special pattern ," she says. "It should always remain the star of the room. When you pair it with other fabrics , try subtle ginghams, checks, stripes and of course solids." "You can take a small space and wrap it all up in one pleasant pattern," she says, "toiles are the easiest. You can do an all-toile room, or just touches of it. The best thing is, there are no rules -- you determine your own comfort level as far as quantity goes."

In small touches, toiles are effective as decorative pillows, lamp shades, table skirts and tabletop linens. Decorating with such a dominant design can present a challenge, but if you keep a few basic design principles in mind, you'll find the end results quite rewarding.

Toiles coordinate specially well with checks, stripes and plaids. These geometric designs create a nice balance and help avoid a room becoming too busy.
Some toiles mix well with florals, but not all of them are good partners. Be aware of balance and scale. If both the Toile and the Floral are strong designs, they will fight one another for your attention.
The History of Toile Bedding
The history of toile bedding; Toile, pronounced twal, (the word toile means cloth in French) is an abbreviation of Toile de Jouy. The name comes from Jouy-en-Josas, France where the first plant to commercially produce this type of printing was established in 1760. Typically the images were scenes that told a story. Drawings might retell a myth of a French farming family. Although it has been continuously produced since then, it experienced a marked upsurge in popularity in recent years. Toile Bedding is a timeless French Provencal classic characterized by a monochromatic etching on a solid background. Usually the art work resembles a pen and ink sketch with floral and French country motifs maintaining a lion's share of the market.
