Nothing says classic country style like toile ("twahh"). Waverly's Country Life pattern has been around forever and is available in numerous colorways. 

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.
