Country French Decorating Ideas With Toile Paper/Wallpaper

Toile Wallpaper

You could, of course, just paper an entire room with toile design wallpaper. (Here are some photos of what that might look like, and here's a bathroom covered entirely in toile de Jouy).

I'm convinced, though, that you can just as easily achieve a "French" look with less effort & money. For example:

  • Turn a rectangular MDF sheet into a headboard for a platform bed by 'wallpapering' it with a toile print. (Fold the paper over the edges so no wood shows - example above left!).
  • Wallpaper/découpage the drawer fronts of an old dresser with toile paper. Then paint the rest of the dresser in a matching color. The same would work for an occasional tabletop or cupboard doors!
  • Decoupage a wide, flat, uninteresting picture/mirror frame with toile design wallpaper.
  • Wallpaper the back wall of an open shelf (or cupboard) with a toile design (or a toile border), like this:

Some more ideas for decorating with toile  printed wallpaper:

  • In a home office, cover the backs of your filing system (boxes or binders) with toile design wallpaper.
  • Wallpaper the bottom (= the 'cargo area') of a wooden tray with a toile print (use a clear sealant to protect the surface from spillages!)
  • Use toile wallpaper above/below the chair rail only. Or, run a narrow ledge along the wall (about 20" below ceiling height). Wallpaper with toile print below the ledge, and display blue Staffordshire transferware / black transferware on the ledge, against a solid-color background. Some of the early English transferware designs are still produced today, and they make perfect companion pieces for French toile:
