Toile de Jouy
"Toile de Jouy", sometimes abbreviated to simply "toile", is a type of decorating pattern consisting of a white or off-white background on which a repeated pattern depicting a fairly complex scene, generally of a pastoral theme such as a couple having a picnic by a lake or an arrangement of flowers. The pattern portion
consists of a single color, most often black, dark red, or blue. Greens, browns, and magenta toile patterns are less common, but not unheard of. Toile is most associated with fabrics (curtains and upholstery in particular, especially chintz), though toile wallpaper is also popular. Toile can also be used on teapots,
beddings, clothing, etc. In upper-class (primarily American, but also northern European) society, toile is often seen on dresses or aprons used at such events as country-themed garden parties or tea parties.
Toiles were originally produced in Ireland in the mid-18th Century and quickly became popular in Britain and France. The term, Toile de Jouy, originated in France in the late 18th century. In the French language, the phrase literally means "cloth from Jouy-en-Josas", a town of north-central France.
Although it has been continuously produced since then, it experienced a marked upsurge in popularity around the year 2000. Previously only a decorating design, designers have been recently experimenting with toile-patterned apparel as well, although toile-patterned shirts were widely worn in the 1970s.
Toiles were very popular during the Colonial Era in the United States and are highly associated with preservationist towns and historical areas such as Colonial Williamsburg. When Williamsburg saw a repopularization in the 1930s, so did toiles, as they did again in the 1970s in celebration of the United States Bicentennial.

La décoration de la pièce est mise en évidence. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails, les couleurs des meubles et de la décoration. La lumière environnante a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bon dimanche.

Bonjour, mon ami Philippe,
I see two things on your picture that here in my living room would suit, the nice old clock and the table or bureau.
Your picture is very well taken.
Your angle is nice with depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.
Amitiés, et bonne dimanche,

Nice explained about the style of those walls decoreated.
Also, ancient furniture and other elements draw much attention when looking at this indoor's pic. of the room.
Superbly taken with mild light conditions.

Je ne sais pas si cette tapisserie ferait bien sur les murs de nos maisons modernes. Une chose est certaine c'est que j'aime bien la position de la chaise face à la fenêtre pour voir dehors le joli jardin.

Ciao mio caro Philippe
una bella lezione su questo tipo di stampa, conoscevo bene il modello, ma non conoscevo il suo nome e la sua storia. Un'ottima occasione per mostrarci questo tuo interno.
Trovo molto belli i porta candele in porcellana.

A very fine interior picture with an abundance of details. I like the floor covering, there are many modern imitations made of vinyl. This looks like the real thing. Also a very interesting wall covering. A well taken picture.

Resim-tablo tadında bir fotoğraf.
Herşeyden önce netlik mükemmelin ötesinde.
Uğraş verilerek çekilmiş fotoğrafa benziyor.
Ders alınacak bir yapıt.

Bonjour cher ami Philippe,
A very good note informs the photo a toile, and reminds me so much of a photo of Albert Einstein , that I will make a workshop and demonstrate it. Have a wonderful weekend, Philippe.

nice work indoors

A nice shot of the neat and orderly bureau, with strong warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. A good downward angled shot with a good diffused light and all bar the window and exterior correctly exposed. The nearly square format works well here. Merci!
Kielia (23225) 2014-07-20 6:23
a very fascinating image with a fantastic mood - and a great impression of the toile and the interior, very thoroughly composed with an excellent management of the light. My compliments also for the interesting notes!
mirosu (13117) 2014-07-28 0:05
Excellent well composed interior photo in very good light. You have exposed it in superb way, to make also the trees behind the window visible.
Very well done.
P.s. Sorry for my slow response, but my access to internet is not very regular during my travelling.

Bonjour dear Philippe
Good interior shot, with fine interesting things on display. The wall paper for sure is very interesting showing the patterns I read in your mail...Well done!
macjake (54816) 2014-08-07 10:49
I'll never look at wallpaper the same way again :)

its good though, provides a great history of the subject.

We visited a castle last week in the Netherlands where they show the most beautiful rooms, here´s another beauty....
ourania (29227) 2014-09-24 9:01
I like this photo and find it very interesting because it gives us a very accurate description of the interior, retaining the quality of the colours and the intimate feel of the atmosphere. You chose an effective angle to present this corner of the room and made great use of the window and the light passing through it. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

You have portrayed the historic wallpaper in this antique house very well. The design is a bit too busy for me, but if I had lived then, I might have gone with the fad, too.
