Happy Monday! the weather is so stunning that it is so exiting to think summer is around the corner! Today’s post is on one of my favorite fabrics!
I LOVE TOILE!!
To Toile or not to Toile? Can you ever have too much toile?
Toile, oh my, I have loved this pattern and in fact have written about it before!
But it is having a comeback and can totally be considered part of my love affair with BOHO CHIC!
Toiles when used in black and white are super sophisticated, fun and even cutting edge. I would not suggest a black and white toile for a Childs room, not even of teen years. But toile is definitely a grown up pattern!
Toile in black and white can be paired with zebra rugs for a very hot looking guest bedroom!
Toiles in fact are not just for bedrooms! Start to think out of the box! They are great breakfast room fabrics and make super smart home offices and great study and playrooms for girls!
Have a wonderful start to the week! thanks for all the great emails I appreciate the feedback!
I had the most amazing week because this past Wednesday I had a photoshoot with Michelle Adams and Patrick Cline from Lonny for the new Trad Home online magazine. My team and I prepared for a shoot the we always do; lots of food, sturdy shoes, and a clear schedule because our photoshoots usually take 12-14 hours. Not to mention the craze of all kind of photographers and assistants running around, we are sure to pack the Advil. But to our surprise we met Michelle and Patrick over at the house where they proceeded to calmly organize a small collection of equipment. We were expecting more help but it was just them and they began to quickly go through the house and plan the appropriate shots. The shoot was calm organized and dare I say…fun? And it took a quarter of the time it usually does and they were such joys to work with.
As you know, Lonny is the hottest and best online magazine out there right now, hands down. The Lonny team has basically revolutionized the way we get our design information and has sparked many more teams to try and do the same. But there is no one like Lonny – just check out their most recent 200 page magazine full of fabulous interiors and the latest design trends. The fact that we know the people behind the magazine are just as quality as the magazine they produce is even more reason for us to say, WE LOVE LONNY! And we are so looking forward to working with them more in the future as Trad Home begins and and as Lonny continues to dominate. We would like to say thank you to the beautiful and talented Michelle and Patrick for all of their support. I can’t wait to see the photos!
