Tuscan Style: A Kitchen Brimming With Cozy And Chic

 

 Could you have a love of all things Tuscan buried deep inside you, but never new how to define it?  Tuscan style is rich and warm with color and texture.  Think fall colors – shades of rust, reds, yellows, greens, plums – all mixed together and working with each other to create a warm, harmonious, inviting ambiance.  Dark heavy baskets,  iron work,  distressed wood, lots of fruit, wine, roosters…..all of these things create that magical Tuscan warmth that makes a kitchen so cozy and inviting.  Accents of Salado has a wonderful selection of Tuscan accents to create just this look.

Love this colorful, interesting, fun vent-a-hood and backsplash.   Rich in fall colors and texture.  You don’t have to be overly serious about everything.  Bring in some whimsy and fun!

  The Tuscan kitchen with its warm, welcoming ambiance is the heartbeat of the home….like the warm and cozy comfort of  a fireplace in the winter.  So break out that bottle of wine, peruse some Tuscan decorating magazines and books (and my blog, of course) and think about creating this same inviting look in your own kitchen.

 

Happy Decorating!
