Paint the Town!

I just stumbled upon this fun site, Town Toiles. Their colorful toiles celebrate famous cities across America. They carry everything from fabric and wallpaper to gift items. They have a great vintage look to them, don't they?


Charleston in pretty Oyster Blue

I'm generally not a big fan of toiles, but these are very whimsical and vintage-inspired. I would love to wallpaper a small room or bathroom with one of these, such as the Charleston (above) in Oyster Blue.


San Francisco landmarks in pale blue & chocolate

Tampa in raspberry and lime green - great combo!

New York City in cream and black

Chicago in pale blue and chocolate brown


Boston in cream and wedgewood

There are other cities and color variations. You can check out Town Toile's website here.

I'm like you, I can do toile only in small doses anymore - and these selections are gorgeous!

I just gave you a blog award over on my blog, by the way.

Take care!

These city toiles remind me of the old Macy's bags and boxes covered with a "city scene" pattern back in the 1960's!

Wow, Lynn, doesn't that raspberry and lime green pop! Very refreshing. I'm still a softie for black and white/cream toile {and love it with the NY design}. Had a couple of little footstools upholstered in b&w toile some years ago and still regret reupholstering them in something else. The toile really made them special.
