Toile in its classic sense is defined as a pattern of regal-looking people or animals in some landscape setting, like a garden or farm. The traditional pattern is usually featured in a single colorway — trad shades of green, red, blue, or black on a white background. Thankfully, these rules have gone out the window.
You can now find toile in every color palette (hello, pink!) and the designs often play around with scale. I'm also a big fan of the modern, cheeky twists on what images are now considered toile. You can find modern toiles that are whimsical and fun.
