Party Time

I don't like to turn down a party.... and Pretty Organized Palace is having a toile themed party today.. so I thought why not!?

I've always loved how Pottery Barn does a toile; They manage to make it still feel modern and sophisicated. These are 2 bedding sets from Pottery Barn that I've had my eye on over the past few years.
This is their Martine Toile in powder blue that is currently for sale on the website. I love that it comes in a duvet and a quilt so that you can add a little texture. Unfortunately I have white furniture in my bedroom, because I LOVE how this dark wood bed creates a contrast and keeps the toile grounded.
After weeks of agonizing about this Asian toile (the debate was over how much I loved the overall pattern and color, but there is a man in the pattern and I didn't know if I was comfortable sleeping with humans on my bedding - I'm not neurotic I swear!) I finally went to my shopping cart all set to purchase and it was sold out in the size I needed!! I've been devastated ever since!

Anyways, if any of you are up for a party tonight, hop on over to Pretty Organized Palace!

  1. Beautiful toiles! So sorry you didn't get the bedding you wanted! Must be another out there somewhere.


  2. Oh my gosh, that powder blue bedding would look wonderful on my dark wood bed! Hmmm...I bet it's spendy, huh?

    I can't stand it when I dawdle/dither for just a second--and then I miss out! So sorry!

  3. I very much like that modern feel of toile!

  4. I was enjoying the toile party when I noticed the name of your blog. My maiden name (and my oldest daughter's first name) is Daly. Since the spelling of our name is unusual, I'm wondering if that is your name and if you have any relatives in Alabama! Anyway, thank you for sharing...always love Pottery Barn stuff!

  5. I had to laugh at your sleeping with humans on your bedding comment. I hadn't even thought about toile that way. Now I'm going to be a bit paranoid when I go to sleep tonight. Thanks! LOL. Sorry you didn't get the bedding. Maybe they'll get more in.

  6. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
