Toile de jouy

Toile de Jouy wallpapers

The term “Toile de Jouy” literally means cloth from the French town of Jouy. It didn’t originally refer to a style of interior decoration, but to a specially-crafted white or creamy fabric, on which was printed a single-colour pattern repeated throughout the canvas. Only later, when the fabric became widely popular and its motifs began to be applied in various areas of art, was the term Toile de Jouy also used for wallpaper that mimicked the fabric.

  • Background. The background is generally white, beige, cream, or pink. The colour is uniform, without abrupt, strong colour transitions.
  • Printing. The images on the Toile de Jouy wallpaper are typically single-coloured and printed in various shades of red, blue, black or brown. In modern versions of the wallpaper, we also find two-colour or multi-colour prints.
