Chic + Timeless: Toile in 1972!


I love being inspired by the past! I was sorting through all sorts of beautiful old family photos and came across this great one of my mom and my grandparents in 1972 (my grandma Ethel Spicer of Spicer + Bank is in yellow. So chic right?) I loved seeing my family but also the interior, that sage green toile wallpaper is amazing and I love how it is still so on trend today! A neutral toned toile is just timeless and so elegant. 

Here are few modern inspirations . . . Do you have any photos of family interiors which inspire you? 








Especially loving that first shot with the bright accessories against the black and white toile!!

I love it all. Love old photos (and your grandmother looks amazing) and love toile. It's quite interesting to see it in such large scale in a small powder room.

I will always love toile. The husband isn't as big of a fan, but it's great in small and big doses, isn't it?
