Toile de Ville, inspired by the traditional toile de Jouy which first appeared as a fabric print in the 18th century in Jouy, France. It's continued to be a popular print, reinvented, reimagined and subverted by many artists and designers.
The Toile de Ville is an old school wallpaper.
- It's hand silkscreened by an amazing team of artisans in the US that's been printing wallpapers since the 1960s.
- It's washable with mild soap and water (no detergent), just in case you splash your poutine sauce on it.
- This wallpaper is trimmed, unpasted, and
- It's recommended to have it installed by a professional, unless you're a seasoned DIY type.
Measuring your space
Before you order your Toile de Ville wallpaper, you’ll need to do some delightful math to figure out how much you’ll need:
- Get out your tape measure and your pencil to make notes. Or your phone. You’re not THAT old school.
- Plug in the numbers here: (length of your wall, in feet) x (height of your wall, in feet) = square footage
- Round up your measurements before you multiply. If your wall is, say, 10.5 feet -round up to 11.
- Multiply the square footage by 15%. This accounts for trimming and matching the image when lining up the strips on the wall side by side.
- If there’s a window or some other feature on the wall you’re papering, you’ll want to remove that square footage from your total. Measure the length x width of the window, and go ahead and subtract that number from your first total.
- You now have your square footage, and can order accordingly! There’s approximately 67 sq.ft per roll.
