Welcome to Hooked on Fridays, a blog party I host at the end of every week to celebrate the things we love. Today I’m hooked on toile. I keep hearing that it’s “out.” Passe. Dunzo. But I’m just not ready to give it up yet. I think it’s a classic look that can really pull a room together. When a friend of mine moved into a run-down, one-hundred year-old farmhouse, the mudroom was piled with garbage. She cleaned it up, gave the woodwork a fresh coat of white paint, and hung some red toile wallpaper in the small space. Now it’s such a charming little corner of her house that you can’t help but linger (or, if you’re me, snap a picture!):
Another reason I want toile to stick around for awhile: my family room! I love my toile chairs:
Now the true toile-lover can even wear it in the garden with these rubber boots (wellies) from Tamara Henriques in the U.K. But I haven’t gone that far. Yet.
Pretty Organized Palace is hosting a Toile Blog Party on Tuesday, March 24. It’ll be fun to see the whole blogosphere decked out in toile for a day!
