French Toile and Script PinterestWhen I began to redecorate our living room…there were a couple decorating elements I wanted to be sure to include in the scheme. Top on the list was the incorporation of French Toile and Script. 

How I Included French Toile and Script…

In my living room decor.

French Toile and Script-11Last year I began the overall transformation of our living room by painting the walls a greige called Smoked Oyster. I loved the transformation. That led to painting furniture and sewing slipcovers. 

The Fun Part…Accessorizing

The beauty of the living room’s decor came out in the details. I LOVE old script and I love….

French Toile

French Toile and Script-6I wasn’t sure, however that the French Toile I had on hand would fit in the new color scheme. The greige and painted furniture directed me to muted shades of gray and blue…red became the additional accent color.

French Toile Curtains…Script Lampshade

French Toile and Script-2I love finding thrifty deals! I found three sets of French Toile panels at an Estate sale. I hope to use the remainder in different ways throughout the house…The lampshade, I found at The Country Living Fair last fall. These lamps were my parents. “The Ladies” as I have called them seem to me to be an extension of the toile in relief…

Old Script

French Toile and Script-8I love old books with their yellowed patinaed pages. I used an old music book as part of my Christmas decor and afterwards left some of the pages here and there in my living room’s decor. I took the pages out and used a KraftEdge pair of craft scissors to give texture to the pages.

French Toile and Script-7One of my favorite places to find French decor accessories is Sunday Brocantes Shop. This wonderful blogger’s shop is opened the first couple of days each month. I found these marvelous French Script pages there.

Script Fabric

French Toile and Script-3I love the many varieties of script fabric we can find. I slipcovered these two pillows with some of my favorite script fabric….I love the soft neutral shades of the fabric too!


French Toile and Script-1I have to have a little blue chintz added in the decor too! Don’t you love all the wonderful varieties of chintz in decor! The beautiful, deep green, textured leaves on these branches are from the Loquat tree in our backyard…love it!

Coming together…

French Toile and Script-4The overall transformation of the living room is coming together…I couldn’t be more pleased. The greige walls, the French Toile and script accessories add to the serene, comfortable atmosphere I now seek in my home’s decor….Do you love French Toile and Script in your decor too?
