Toile is most effective in large quantities and particularly popular for bedrooms and cozy dens. I would love to do a baby girl's nursery in the pink & cream version.
This chair slipcover is part of designer's project for a client's bedroom.
This fabric has a huge repeat, obviously, and because it's so graphic, placement and flow of the images is pretty important. This is my first time doing a "waterfall" skirt. It was a little more challenging but really makes a big difference in the finished look. A horizontal line of cording around the chair would have interrupted the design and been distracting.
I had a little fun and picked out a lady who didn't appear on the inside back or seat and featured her on each arm.
A king size duvet cover and shams in this toile and two of these cornice boxes were also part of this project. Hopefully I'll get a picture of the finished space and all the pieces together. Design and fabric from Gayle Widdowson with Art of Design.
