Love the old-world charm of Tuscany and want to evoke it in your own home decorating? At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Estero, we know that many people dream of the luxurious and iconic hillside town, so we’ve put together some ideas for how you can bring that style to your home without having to travel half the world. Read on to learn more!
Consider Your Color Palette
These days one trending color is terracotta, with its rich, earthy look and feel. And because it’s trending, you’ll be able to find it in a number of places—some usual and some unexpected. Pair your terracotta with other earthy, unassuming hues such as red, olive green, yellow-gray, yellow-blue, and blue-apricot. Employ this palette in things like sturdy Tuscan furnishings, wrought-iron accessories such as candle sconces or light fixtures, painted tile, and textured wall finishes. For the perfect finishing touch, add terracotta tiles and stone with mosaic inlay in complementary colors.
Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Roman Shades can be a great way to add the cheerful tones of the palette above. Featuring 320 timeless fabrics in an array of colors sourced from the finest mills around the world, this beautiful collection evokes the Italy of old. You can also bring a touch of that old-world charm into your home through décor that looks refined, warm, and gently aged. Tuscan style is elegant but not excessive. A handful of decorative touches such as an ornamental light fixture or a rustic carved wall piece is all that is needed to dress a room. Wood furniture embellished with carved or painted designs deliverers the charm of Tuscany.
Don’t Forget Your Outdoor Space
In a Tuscan villa, it’s all about the beautiful outdoors. To create the same Tuscan look in your outdoor living space, decorate your porch or patio with comfortable seating infused with the earthy Tuscan color palette mentioned above. Consider including traditional Italian design elements, such as arches or iron railings. Remember, you don’t need to be perfect with this design. Old-world charm is not precise.
