"Yards and Yards . . . "

Tucker and Marks, San Francisco


So I'm working here in my office today.  With my favourite pair of tailoring sheers.  And my tape measure.  And the work orders / estimates for four different workrooms.  And a bolt of 78 yards of toile.  For an amazing new master bedroom that we're just starting to work on.

Toile.  Go big, or go home.

Love toile. Considering using it in my redo in our guest room. I'm drawn to the brown and cream toiles, but haven't made up my mind.

You can't just toile one thing, got to toile it all !

I wrote a post on toile too, but did not publish as I did not like my photo choices. These are wonderful. I believe every home should have a of toile somewhere....I do!

Scot Meacham Wood said...

Yes, Maureen - every house needs a hint of toile! There's even a few items here at the house!

Great photo choices. Toile is tricky to work with. How many pieces do you cover with it, what other prints go well, etc. Shiree'
