At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, many of our customers love to travel the globe—or dream of all the places they’ll go when they can. One popular dream destination is Tuscany; we get many stories of people who relate to the beauty, elegance, and romance of the area. If you can’t go there or just want to be reminded of Tuscany regularly, the next best thing is to add a touch of Tuscan charm and beauty to your modern-day living space. It can be easier than you think. To get some design ideas or to see some window treatments up close, speak one of our consultants today.
Tuscan Color Palette
The Tuscan color palette is rustic and earthy, with hues reminiscent of a Tuscan hillside. Touches of colors like pale terra cotta, earthy red, olive-green, yellow-gray, yellow-blue, and blue-apricot could appear in sturdy furnishings, wrought-iron accessories such as candle sconces or light fixtures, painted tile, and textured wall finishes. Naturally, adding terra cotta tiles and stone with mosaic inlay would add the perfect finishing touch. You can also add the color palette in your window treatment fabrics. The Design Studio™ Roman Shades are available in 320 timeless fabrics in an array of colors sourced from the finest mills around the world. You can also find 73 coordinating decorative tapes and trims.
Charm and a Touch of Simplicity
Add décor that brings old-world charm into your home. Choose pieces that look refined, warm, and gently aged, such as an ornamental light fixture or a rustic carved wall piece. Or go with wood furniture embellished with carved or painted designs. Or consider an elegant tapestry and leaded-glass door panels to add that old-world character.
Don’t Forget the Outside
Tuscan homes include plenty of outdoor living space. Let your home mimic that by decorating your porch or patio with comfortable seating infused with the earthy Tuscan color palette mentioned above. Consider creating a couple of intimate spaces including traditional Italian design elements, such as arches or iron railings. Remember, old-world charm is not precise—you don’t need to be perfect in your decorating.
