The Tuscan Decorating Style:

Understanding the Tuscan Elements 

 

"I want to decorate my home in the Tuscan style. 
What elements should I include for an authentic look?"

The Tuscan decorating style is truly one of the most endearing home decor styles today, and is also one of the most enduring. 

At the very core of the Tuscan decorating style is infused a centuries old love of beauty, simplistic function, and superior artistic craftsmanship, expressed so elegantly throughout every village and home in Tuscany. 

The warm, vibrant colors, earthen accents, and solid wood furniture all invoke a sense of comfortable familiarity with the past.

The elements of wood, earth, stone, and water are a common theme of Tuscan villa interiors and outdoors throughout the Italian country landscape. Understanding these elements will enable you to better incorporate them into your own Tuscan home and garden. 

 

Those who have experienced the decorating style of Tuscany firsthand will tell you that it is comfortable and happy. 

 

The Tuscan way of living is a relaxed way of living - not flashy or pretentious.  It is defined by a focus on finding love and beauty in things most important: family, friends, and even food. 

 

The desire to return to a more relaxed way of living has encouraged many to embrace this time honored, nostalgic style, and seek to replicate it in their own surroundings.
