Just like the furnishings, French country fabrics create an artful, engaging potpourri. Toile is the quintessential print for this style, but toss in a few notes of gingham, stripes, florals and solids for a pleasing pastiche. Textural fabrics, such as linen, tapestry and matelassé, lend the tactile interest that the look demands. Stay away from formal textiles such as damask, which can feel too prim.
New-world chic: Two different toiles combine with oversize gingham checks in this airy bedroom, unified by the lavender palette (a nice nod to the lavender that blooms across French fields). The soft, swooping canopy adds just the right touch of drama and elegance.
