The rustic color palette of the Tuscan Design style is rooted in the humble earthy hues of the Tuscan countryside. If you’ve never been to Tuscany, no worries. You can’t go wrong with warming up your space in the rich, deep hues of autumn – umber browns, olive greens, golden yellows, coppery oranges, and deep rust-toned reds will infuse your space with welcoming cosiness. Use these colors anywhere in your space – on the walls, in your artwork, in your textiles, on the furniture.
Because the colors of Tuscan style tend to be on the heavy side, don’t be afraid to lighten things up with a little contrasting color. Creams and beiges or lighter Tuscan tones serve as excellent counterpoints to balance out your space.
Rustic elements (think wrought iron, painted ceramics, tile) should be present, although they should not overwhelm the space overall. Your Tuscan styled home should appear rich, warm, refined, and comfortable.
