You may think of it as wallpaper or a pattern for dishes but there is something so utterly elegant and romantic about a Toile print.
Inspired by 18th century French scenery, Toile patterns have all the charm of a floral but with the same vintage vibe as your favorite prairie dress.
They hit the cottagecore trend but in a decidedly French country-side way.
Toile, short for toile du Jouy, was originally a style of decor fabric with a copperplate-engraving-style image of a complex scene—normally something pastoral. It was traditional a blue or red print on a white background but today, toile can bear any kind of print or color, although the most common are still blues, reds, and blacks.
The utterly elegant style instantly adds a touch of femininity and nostalgia to your look.
Try sending those ginghams and florals out to pasture for a bit and wrap yourself in the French elegance that is the Toile the Wallpaper Print Trend.
