About six or seven years ago I was a little bit obsessed with toile (mind you, not obsessed enough to know it was pronounced "twarl" and not "toil" so I can't have been too hardcore). More correctly, toile de jouy (for the factory in France that started this whole thing off), is a repeated pattern depicting a fairly intricate scene on a plain background. Now we know, thank you online encyclopedia Britannica.
Today, while I can appreciate these beautiful rooms, I'm not so sure it's me.

If you're not bold enough to use it in a room, it makes for very stylish gumboots and dog beds.
How about you?
