Twall Y'all

Love, love this "twall" pattern on Bungalow Company's Twall Y'all Junque Trunk. It's a super sturdy 24 X 15 X 15 container that has a zippered bottom that allows it to be folded completely flat. I am totally enamored with their beachy lime green/blue toile that I scoured the internet to see if it came in wallpaper or fabric. As far as I can tell it doesn't.

This junque trunk is doing duty just inside one of the french doors in our family room. Since the basement entry is a bit under-continuing-construction this door is handling all the traffic from our pool. Hoping it will encourage people to drop off their shoes & wet towels...

I bought the first one at a local store and ordered another one and a taller, hamper sized version from Amazon. Here's some more pics of the pattern. Too cute!

What an absolutely fabulous pattern! I have to think of how I could use one of these containers..........

Wonderful pattern and it would be adorable wallpaper.

Fun for summer both in colors and a useful container.
It could be our generational history of toile since it tells stories of our summer vacations.Too cute!

Call the ompany. They should give you the info on the pattern. If its theirs they may offer to allow your to purchse the fabric before its treated. If thats a no go try towntoiles.com. They may be able to lead you in the right direction.
Good luck!!!

This is SUCH a cute pattern!! The RV!? Classic. Toile doesn't have to be lords and ladies lounging in the garden after all.

What a delightful and happy design. I wish Bungalow carried it in wallpaper and fabric.

Town Toiles also carries cheerful patterns based on scenes of Tampa, Charleston, San Francisco, Nantucket, etc. Have a look ~

This is absolutely fabulous- I adore toile- but this is something spectacularly different all together! Would be great for the trunk to toss wet pool/beach stuff into all summer long! -etrag

I saw that exact toile storage "box" at TJ Maxx the other day for really cheap. I so wish I had gotten it now.

I could swear I've seen that wallpaper pattern in that combo and other combos like it somewhere. I'm a wallpaper junkie and I'm pretty sure I looked through every wallpaper book ever made when we renovated/remodeled/added on recently. I may have to go on a search...I adore toile and have it in my whole front entry area and up the stairs. It's a muted reddish color and it's not a typical scene -- it's a fox hunt scene. I even posted a picture of it on my right border under the title "It's Toile Y'all"...

I just looked at the pic of my toile entryway posted on the right column of my blog and I titled it Toile In The Family (not Toile Y'all)....geeeze, I'm losing my mind...

Lol.
