I love this contemporary interpretation of toile.

from Flavor Paper.

There was also a designer featured in Domino some months ago who renovated her guest house and papered parts of it with some yellow toile that she designed herself. I wish I had saved the image somewhere because it was fabulous. Yellow background, black and white line art featuring what first appeared to be traditional toile motifs (sheppherdesses with their crooked canes, etc) but on closer look they were images of more contemporary african american images; little girls playing double dutch, getting their hair braided. Good stuff.
