Burlap Gone for Now, Beloved Toile is Back

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions about the burlap valance. I have taken it down for now and put back up my beloved toile. I did make a change though because this is the old red and cream toile I used to have in here, not the gold and red. I'll probably switch back and forth between the two toiles since I love them both. I can't help it - I love pattern! Plain is so not for me! Have a wonderful Wed. everyone!

Gorgeous! I'm so glad you put back a toile! It looks so pretty! There are so many toiles to chose from these days. If your really want a more solid look you could go with a tone on tone toile. But I love this look!

you're so funny! I'm sure you'll find something useful for that burlap. I'm thinking about using yours and "Bungalow's" idea for turning my siver tray into a message board with chalkboard paint. I'll keep ya posted.

You can't ever go wrong with toile.:)

Hi Angie! I think the toile is soo much prettier! I agree on loving pattern especially toile! Burlap is popular now and looks good in many homes but for me its pattern! I can't get used to burlap inside the house???lol Sincerely, Jeannette

I think it is always nice to have "options"! You can always change your window treatments with the seasons!

I loved both looks. But of course it is hard NOT to use toile if you have it...I love it so much too! Hopefully one of these days I will actually finish the toile curtains for my house too...

I love toile but love the burlap, too. Hey -- use the burlap for fall decorating! It would be awesome with all of your autumn goodies out and about!

Grins! Pamm

See, you learned something - or maybe just confirmed something you already knew. Either way, I like it, too.

Toile is so addicting. I adore your valance!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Okay, I have to be honest~ although the burlap is very sweet, the toile does seem more "you"! The valance is gorgeous in that room by the way, and I love the complementary edging on the bottom of the valance! So pretty! :)

Other than gingham (red and white) I love toile (and the red type that you have is my favorite)

Love your blog! I just got a red toile valance with gingham on the trim for my kitchen and I LOVE it!
