Although you may want to use toile fabric for your kitchen decor, remember that in France, toile turns up in the most unexpected places. The Casino de Deauville in Normandy where the attire is formal for women and black tie for men is famous for its toile decor.
In a UK Sunday Times article entitled "Deauville: The Classy Channel Resort," the writer Anthony Peregrine wrote:
"Beyond, the classical lobby could have swallowed my house. The chandelier was the size of a helicopter. Luxury lay thick all around. If you require minimalism, you may clear off to a spa in Thailand. In Deauville, you see where the money goes: wood panelling, frescoes, toile de jouy wall hangings and more stuff than you know what to do with."
Toile fabric is emblematic of French decorating. It's a decorating basic there and Americans love it too. Toile fabric is a decorative fabric that fits in many of US locales because it and can be mixed with many different decorative home decor settings. This excerpt from a French Country Style book describes the variety of ways Americans use French Country style:
"... the ways in which people use French country components, from tiles to tureens to armoires are astounding in their diversity. There is the diminutive sun-filled cottage in Carmel where the simple, joyful combination of furniture, fabrics, and tile perhaps best expresses the transcendent warmth and charm of provincial France; the Greenwich Village town house with a French country kitchen that belies any hint to the city that is just outside the window: the farm in Woodstock, New York that combines elements of French and American country styles so skillfully that the two seem to derive from a single design source; and the home near Los Angeles where a rich collection of provincial furniture sets off an ambiance that is pure California."
