Pretty Organized Palace is having a Toile Party today, and how serendipitous! Because my mother-in-law stitched me up a gorgeous toile shower curtain last week:
I've had this lavender toile fabric knocking around for seven years, ever since we bought a house in Columbus that had a lavender bedroom. I turned it into my study, and I was amazingly productive in that room, which I attribute to the lavender.
I fell in love with this lavender toile and bought it to make curtains for the room, but we were in and out of that house so quickly (eight months or so), I never had the time.
I've been hanging onto it ever since, waiting, and I finally got the chance to use it in my newly painted and redone guest bath.
The background is not as creamy as it looks above--it's hard to get the color right both with flash and without. We trimmed it with the green stripe because I spent months trying to find a coordinating fabric, and finally decided to go with something completely contrasting. I'm so thrilled with how it came out! Thanks, Viv!
Go take a look at everyone else's toile items, too. I love toile.
