Looking to add a little old world elegance to your space?  Try toile!

Originating in Europe, and popular in American Colonial design, toile is a traditional yet anything but boring design aesthetic.  It’s a great way to add a healthy dose of personality to your space.

Wondering how to incorporate it into your space… I’m so glad you asked:

1. Wallpaper – How fab is this bathroom?!? Traditional yet modern. {source}

2. Dinnerware – The toile design aesthetic is perfect for a formal dining room, but if you have commitment issues, dinnerware is the perfect option. {source}

3. Furniture – This custom wallpapered dresser exudes femininity and I’m loving it! {source}

4. Accessories – Another non-committal option is accessorizing with toile.  This wastebasket is perfect for a guest bathroom or bedroom.  I especially love the mixing of traditional toile with asian design. {source}

5. Headboard – Nothing says girly like a pink toile headboard.  How great would this be for a little girl’s room?!? {source}
