Tuscan kitchen decorating is reminiscent of the warm Italian country side with
an old world feeling.
Warm earth tones and architectural accents add interest and add
an air of informality to this time worn look. Although the look is of a
centuries old kitchen you can achieve it no matter how new your home is!
Below is some tips for adding the look of a Tuscan villa to your kitchen.
Tuscan kitchen decorating incorporates warm earth tones and golden hues.
Tuscan kitchens are filled with sunlight so you want to mirror those golden colors in your kitchen.
Using natural elements for your floors and counters like marble or granite, slate, natural stone
and terra cotta tiles will help to achieve this look.
Faux painting or finishing your walls in a
rough texture will add interest and ambiance.
Use old world style lighting to illuminate your Tuscan kitchen decorating scheme.
A wrought iron chandelier with scrollys hanging over your table and matching sconces for accent lights.
Use plain pendant lighting over an island an stay away from shiny metal finishes opting for more of
an antique look.
Tuscan kitchens are full of sunlight so you want to let as much into your kitchen as possible.
Use sheer flowing drapes in neutral colors or off white.
Furniture should have an old world look. Use sturdy chunky pine tables and chairs with a matt
finish or distressed paint. Open country cupboards with chicken wire doors add to the effect and a
wine rack is a must!
There’s a ton of accessories that can be incorporated into your Tuscan kitchen decorating plan.
Use lots of decorative jars of oils with peppers and ropes of garlic, peppers and grape vines.
Antique look signs with a wine motif can add to the wall decor as can wallpaper murals in the form
of Italian frescos and niches. Add lots of greenery and antique stoneware bowls heaped with fruits
to complete the look.
