Red & Pink  Waverly Toile Fabric

Red toile  fabric is one of the oldest, most authentic French toile de Jouy designs: a red vignettes printed onto a white background. The background colors can range from milky white to a dark écru (on antique toile de Jouy).

  • Combine with fabrics/wall paints in white/cream (depending on background color), solid red and dark red.
  • For more color/pattern combination tips, check out the article about Decorating With Toile De Jouy  Fabric.
  • Best wood stains: Antique walnut, rustic oak, antique cherry.

Blue  Waverly Toile Fabric

Indigo blue toile de Jouy  fabric is another early classic from the Oberkampf factory in Jouy-en-Josas.

  • Combine it with fabrics/wall paints in white/cream (sand and écru also look great with blue toile de Jouy  fabric). Then, stir a few tints, shades & tones of matching blues into the mix.
  • Make sure you don't "overtoile"  (it's easy to do  :-)
  • Best wood stains: Rustic, dark stains look good with darker fabrics; blond woods or limed oak go well with lighter blue toile decorator fabric.

Black  Waverly Toile Fabric

Black toile de Jouy  fabric, though another one of Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf's oldest (1760s) styles, is a firm favorite in contemporary black-and-white interiors. Black toile  shower curtains are the perfect way to add elegance to a simple white bathroom.

  • A word of caution when you're decorating in white surroundings: Make sure the background white of your toile de Jouy  fabric matches the majority of the room, because next to a bright white (say, a bathtub), a creamy white/ivory length of black toile  fabric will look 'dirty', even when it isn't.
  • To soften the stark black-white contrast, add warm neutrals where possible (natural straw colors are great).
  • Best wood stains: Walnut or ebony (or black glossy paint).

Green & Blue/Yellow  Waverly Toile Fabric

The original green toile de Jouy  fabric was produced a little later than the oldest monochromes: the first green toiles de Jouy  date from 1806.

  • Apart from mix-n-matching with other green and white textiles and/or wall paints, try combining green toile de Jouy  fabric with red.  Red and green complementary color schemes are incredibly robust & usually come out great.
  • Best wood stains: Dark hardwoods.
