Whenever I think of the Tuscan style of decor, the Italian countryside comes to mind with its rolling mountains, rustic farmhouses, lemon trees and lavender gardens. Tuscan decor is charming, warm and inviting, a great choice for homeowners to incorporate into their own home.
To achieve this style of decor choose elements that have the same characteristics: simple and rustic, earthy tones, and colors found in nature.
Examples of decor elements to use in the Tuscan home are: the color palette of rust, burnt orange green and white. Flooring choices are terra cotta, marble tile flooring and antique rugs. Furniture pieces should be kept simple like wrought iron, leather and wood furnishings. Accessorize your abode with Tuscan decor such as hand painted Italian ceramics, cast iron accents, and rustic light fixtures.
Finally, don't forget the outdoors. To achieve a good flow from indoors to outdoors, give your backyard a Tuscan update. Add wrought iron table and chairs, and purchase colorful clay pots, urns and a garden statue from your local hardware store or thrift store.
