Country Chic With Toile

By: H. Iacobacci-Miller


Are you looking for a little country chic for your bedroom? This “toile de jouy” set from is a great example of a comfortable country or French country design.

The bedding goes perfect with an iron frame bed or even rustic pine or chippy white frames. It all depends on how country, rustic or chic you’re tastes run.

If you want to cut the busyness of the toile, add some crisp battenburg throw pillows and a creamy white waffled throw. Don’t be afraid to mix and match from different bedding sets to achieve the perfect look for you.

Keep your window treatments light and breezy for a relaxed, comfortable feel.

To continue with the light, airy mood, add antique vases filled with roses of pale hues such as pinky-peach or creamy white. Don't forget to add your candles also in light, creamy colors.

This room works well for those working on a budget. You can take your existing furniture and give it a facelift by painting and distressing it for an aged look.

Take an existing lamp base and give it a new look by adding a French or country chic style shade. If you're a real do-it-yourselfer, make your own lamp shades. Botanical prints framed in chippy white or antique gold frames work perfectly and can be made simply and easily. (Click here to find out how)
