Important Update—Please Read

For this week’s wallpaper challenge, we’re looking to our design community to spin this classic style upside down to create a modern and imaginative approach to toile one would only find at Spoonflower. Your scene could portray anything from a faraway galaxy to a contemporary day at the beach and more.


Overview

Traditionally, Toile de Jouy, or toile, refers to a decorative pattern that depicts intricate scenes one might discover in rural living. From a field of blooming flowers to a band of children off on an adventure, these two-toned illustrated designs have maintained popularity across textiles and wallpaper alike.

Designer Tip: Wallpaper patterns make the biggest impact when design elements are 12”-24” and set as a basic repeat.
