print matching

When we were in Paris last Fall, my favorite bedroom in our apartment had a pretty toile for the curtains, headboard, and quilts. I thought it was unusual to use the exact same print three times in one space.


 This is the room-- see the three places the exact same toile was used? This kind of pattern matching was common in Paris, and it somehow manages not to look like a Bed-in-a-Bag.

It seems like I've been noticing this pattern matching thing more and more ever since--and not just among linens, but also wallpaper.

Isn't this crazy, it looks like the walls are melting!

It seems very French to me, but maybe this matching thing is a wider trend. 
Have you noticed it?


P.S.

The prints are so beautiful! It's amazing how much they add to a room. :)

So funny. This struck me as the same thing was in our hotel room in Paris a few years back. I like it in some cases. You are so right, though. In that one room it looks like the walls are melting!
