What Is Tuscan Style?

Find out how to bring a dash of Italian flair to your home

Ah, Tuscany. This sun-kissed area in central Italy has inspired art, books, movies and even a design style. Known as the birthplace for the Italian Renaissance, it’s no wonder homeowners want to incorporate la bella vita d’italia in their homes. 

Explore the colors of Tuscany

The timeless, old world style of the Tuscan region is rich with colors inspired by the countryside. Think sunflower fields, vineyards, and olive groves galore. These cheery yellows, deep burgundies, and leafy greens play well with other earth tones in the Tuscan palette. 

Textures Straight out of Italy

If you’d like to incorporate Tuscan style into your home, start with traditional materials found in Italy. Cool marble, oil-rubbed bronze, and brightly painted terracotta tiles will add instant depth to any room. Embrace the look of rough-hewn exposed beams on the ceiling. Or utilize exposed brick around a fireplace or hearth to add more texture to your design. 

Tuscan Style

The goal of this rustic style is to create a warm and inviting space through decor, comfortable furniture and rugs. Often filled with antiques, art, and natural touches, a Tuscan home is both romantic and quietly elegant. 

Here are some characteristics of a Tuscan Finish: 

  • Oil-rubbed bronze
  • Iron accents
  • Earthy, warm paint colors
  • Textured walls and exposed beams 
  • Stone and exposed brick
