A Toile Office
looking for home office ideas? Why not try this classy toile print
covered chair paired with a fold-away office desk
. Not only is toile a classical print, it comes in nearly
any color you could possibly want, from pink to black or even a
combination of blue and yellow.
Toile doesn't have to mean country chic or French country. It can
be sleek and stylish and fits in with any decor or furniture style
from contemporary to traditional.
For a contemporary home office, try a crisp black toile paired
with sleek black furniture. If you're working in a small space,
try a fold-away desk or armoir to house your computer, books and
other important documents. This vignette from Spiegel.com would
not only work for an office tucked away in a separate room, but
would fit nicely into a living or den area.
samples show how a toile pattern can be paired with stripes or ginghams
depending on the look you're going for for your contemporary toile
Try reversible drapes for large windows with your toile on one
side and a stripe or solid on the reverse. When draped open, you
see both patterns introduced into the room.
When trying to decorate your home office, it's important to remember
what you like. If Toile is your pattern, but you don't like the
country look that is often associated with toile, change your color
and throw in some other prints. Pair it up with non-traditional,
black furniture or furniture with sleek, simple lines. Remember,
it's your space, do what you like!
