I love toile. Really really love. So I was thrilled when Erin at Lucky Luxe sent over these beautiful wedding invitations with a modern take on classic toile! The custom toile pattern is made from vintage engravings and was inspired by 18th century French toile textiles. Erin paired bright persimmon ink with classic black and white and mixed whimsical lettering with traditional serif text – all with incredibly chic results!
From Erin: To make the toile pattern for the invitation, we pieced together several vintage engravings of beautiful outdoor scenery and florals, and I was tickled to death to find the sweet couple taking a stroll deep in our bag of tricks.
French toile is typically printed in red, black, or blue, but we wanted to take this toile down a different aesthetic path. By combining it with quirky hand drawn lettering and a small, traditional serif, it just felt right to print in punchy persimmon ink with black text. The bride is a fashion maven and the bold color pairing looks like her wardrobe — another inspiration for the outdoor event.
