Tuscan interior design draws its inspirations from old rustic villages in Italy. Tuscan interiors feature a rustic, sunbaked look characterized by stone patios; sturdy furnishings with elegant iron accents; terra-cotta tiles; textured wall finishes; elegant, detailed murals and trompe l’oeil designs.
• Colors:The rustic Tuscan interior design color palette leans heavily on earthy, unpretentious hues evocative of a Tuscan hillside.
• Floors: Terra-cotta tiles, stone with mosaic inlay and worn wood covered with antique rugs are ways to bring a Tuscan look down to the floor.
• Accents: Wrought-iron accessories such as candle sconces and light fixtures can reinforce the rustic theme. Other appropriate accessories include painted ceramic objects and tile to bring color and vitality to the design.
• Architecture: Rough plaster walls often meet a rustic beamed ceiling. Windows are simple and left bare to take advantage of unfiltered natural light in Tuscan interior design.
