If you prefer a more elegant look and feel to your home décor, consider a toile comforter in the master bedroom. Toile means cloth in French, but its elegance and style have been used for hundreds of years. A toile comforter will be more formal than most other patterns, but you can lighten its appearance with decorative pillows or window coverings.
Most toile comforters and bedding are made up of merely two colors. The background is often white, or cream and the patterned designed is traditionally blue, white, black, charcoal or red. What makes toile fabric so appealing is that it is very soft allowing it to drape nicely. Also, soft bedding is much more beautiful on the skin than something that is stiffer.
You can find an excellent selection of toile comforters at online retailers, or you can shop in person. Just a hint, toile fabrics have a busy pattern that repeats throughout. You will see many curved lines and is often considered a floral. You can mix and match it well with stripes and plaids. The beauty about toile bedding is that you can dress it up or dress it down that all depends on your style and taste.
