Elegant Tuscan Living Room

When you choose to change your living room style into Tuscan living room style, the look of your living room will be reminiscent of central Italy’s gentle rolling hills, bright dawns, cool breezy balmy evenings and sunny meadows. The look is simple, and yet packs in a punch of gentle relaxation, cheerful brightness underscored by a distinct Mediterranean romantic hangover. Creating a Tuscan living room can be done with several ways.

Here are several ways that you can do. First of all, set the stage for a Tuscan living room with warm, earth tone colors such as light cream, golden and straw yellow, terra-cotta and burnt orange on walls. Use decorative painting techniques such as sponging and color washing to add faux textures mimicking weathered stone and aged plaster.

Wrought iron stair railings and grills on doors and windows are common architectural features. Include other rustic elements such as exposed wood beams on ceilings, fieldstone on a fireplace or accent wall and slate, stone, tile or weathered wood flooring.

Then, include dark stained, Old World-style wood furniture with hand carved details and wrought iron hardware. Cover sofas and chairs in luxurious upholstery fabrics, such as velvet, leather, suede or Renaissance-style silk brocade or jacquard fabric in damask or floral prints.

Anchor furniture with an intricate floral area rug in Tuscan-inspired hues of red, gold, olive, sage, tan and brown. For a dramatic focal point, add a rustic wrought iron chandelier, or a pair of them if space permits. In a smaller room, use a wrought iron pendant or ceiling fixture. Candle-style wrought iron wall sconces make elegant accent lighting.

Don’t forget about the accessories. Accessorize your Tuscan living room with a chenille couch with velvet, brocade or silk tone-on-tone, decorative pillows. Include types with fringe and tassel details. Display a collection of brightly hued, ceramic vases on a shelf. Hang a large, woven tapestry on a focal point wall above a couch depicting the Tuscan countryside. Include wrought-iron based lamps on end tables for a functional and stylish accent.
