Tuscan decorating ideas have become more and more popular as time has gone on. Tuscan decorating can make a home feel elegant, simplistic and enchanting all at the same time. It truly is inspirational and by using Tuscan decorating to brighten up the home, many people also feel a little closer to nature too and that can really help with creativity. Tuscan decorating uses earth colors such as burnt terracotta, ochre, orange, muted yellow and olive green. Solid-wood, sturdy furniture is often used. Flooring may consist of terracotta tiles or wood floors with antique rugs. Walls are often textured with Venetian plaster or faux painting. Wrought iron accents, Italian ceramics and pottery finish the look.
