Toile is getting a modern makeover, as pastoral scenes give way to witty repeats and high-key colors. Pierre Frey is making fanciful desert patterns, while clever designers like Scotland’s Timorous Beasties are doing dreamy cloud motifs.
Forgo traditional blue and white for ultra-brights. Use an ombré toile to paper an accent wall, or try tropical pink and blue fabrics on a pile of pillows.
