I ❤ Toile de jouy .......

There is some thing about toile de jouy that is ever lasting, maybe it is the romance in the scences that it depicts, conjuring up images of a simpler life, with wonderfully detailed often dream like designs.

Whether a piece of worn 18th century toile de jouy or a modern day design, I love them all.

I partuculary love the red designs and think that a touch of red makes a world of difference on a grey winter's day.

The cushion, that you see above, is part of our new stock at Fabulously French and this particular design depicts Diane the huntress.

We also have a pair of curtains in the same fabric which would look equally as good when used as window coverings or as a ciel de lit/bed crown.

Whilst on pinterest last night, I found this fabulous photo of a bathroom decorated with wallpaper in the same design.....

Ir really makes a statement but I would have liked a bit more white and favour a white framed mirror and white framed prints above the bath but that is my opinion as a lover of all things white.

On a final note, I will leave you with a photo that really caught my eye.....

Hence those chairs that I purchased last weekend, just maybe in for a touch of toile de jouy......
