Blue Toile Creates Vintage Charm

Looking for something blue? How about Toile! In a recent featured in Southern California Bride, blue toile creates vintage charm in this lovely design inspiration using vibrant blue and vibrant orange.  The theme is “vintage travel” with images taken in various rooms of the elegant Victorian Hotel in Santa Monica, CA.  Below are some excerpts by Rock N Events who styled the shoot along with photographer Molly + Co.


The Victorian’s old world glamour mixed with contemporary elegance created the perfect backdrop for a stunning inspiration shoot.

Two separate reception areas were utilized for the shoot to exhibit the versatility of the event space. The downstairs banquet suite showcased Wildflower Linen’s vintage blue and white toile pattern table linen which was the perfect base for an elegant table set up. Bronze chargers topped with a pocket folded navy napkin held the menu and a delicate orange rose.





The lovely cake table featured our Carrie Gold table linens with a gold swirl pattern on natural linen like fabric.


Upstairs in The Library, Rock N Events dressed the reception table using nu silk sapphire blue table linens provided by Wildflower Linen, arrangements of burnt orange and white flowers by Elegant Thornes, and books pulled from the surrounding shelves. Rock N Events used open books instead of traditional chargers as the place settings topped with bronze napkins and an open rose.

What is Toile?

Here is some information on Toile fabric and how it came about.  Toile de jouy fabric originated in France in the 1760s. The original patterns usually depicted pastoral scenes; today there are many pattern choices and colors available. Here are ways to use toile to liven up a room by Traditional Homes Magazine.
