What is it about toile, sunflowers, and a rooster that go together?
Toile de Jouy; a fabric that originated in France in the late 1700's, is usually a white or off white fabric printed with a pastoral scene. The translation simply means "cloth from Jouy-en-Josas," a town in north central France. This fabric is by Waverly the pattern is Country Life in black.
A rustic rooster always looks at home in a French country setting.
Sunflowers are at home in a old crock.
A black candlestick works well here.

Thanks for taking a stroll through my French Country tablescape. I will be joining Susan for her 100th Tablescape Thursday at her site Between Naps on the Porch. Congratulations Susan on your 100th! You have created a favorite meme for many!
After I created this table I searched the web for more inspiration on French Country and fall decorating. I came across this picture and I thought it would be a great inspiration photo. A person wrote into HGTV and said she had a white kitchen how could she decorate it? The designer suggested this combination.
From white to wonderful in 4 easy steps.
- Painted the wall light yellow.
- Added a toile window treatment.
- Put a rooster and sunflowers on the island.
- Added wrought iron bar stools in oil rubbed bronze.
I will link this to Shabby Chic Cottage's Transformation Thursday.
