Hello sweet friends !
I just got my placemats in the "Toile de Jouy" material I reupholster my dining chairs last February and I had plenty of cloth left over to make a 'Valance' (which I posted) for my dining room window and 8 placemats and runner for the table.
I also found a very pretty floral tapestry type material for the other face of the placemats, to make them 'reversible' and to go with my new china I brought from Spain at the end of April.
Here is the toile ready for a dinner setting with my reticulated china which is 'ivory' as are the figurines in the toile print... and a sample of the reverse as well.
|All of the 8 placemats have this perfect Toile scenery and it's called in French "Paisannery."|
|Reticulated charger and dinner plate.|
|The lovely 'pearl napkin ring' on top of the salad plate, was a gift from my daughter Sofia for this Mother's Day past.|
|Here to show you the pretty finish on the table runner.|
As I mentioned earlier, I picked this brocade material for the reverse of the runner and placemats because it goes really nice with my Portuguese new china I hawled from Spain last April. Don't you think it goes nicely ?
I will also eventually create a setting with this side.
