Tuscan kitchen design – Tuscany, known as Tuscany in Italy, is a region of Italy covering more than 9,000 square miles and including cities such as Florence, Pisa and Sienna. The region is known for its scenic views, gently slopeing golden fields and vineyards, and simple architecture incorporating natural stone and tiled roofs. Bringing these items and colors into the kitchen can transform the room into a Tuscan inspired cuisine and dining area.
Earth tones such as yellowish-reddish-brown color known as Sienna, as well as gold and deep green form the characteristic Tuscan color palette. Using this color palette on the kitchen table walls, either with paint or wallpaper, sets the framework for a Tuscan inspired kitchen. Transporting the palette to the smallest details, such as serving ware and bedding, creates an environment teeming with Tuscan appeal.
A typical Tuscan scene gently depicts sloping fields of green or gold design of a stone structure. Such a scene painted on a tile backsplash, such as over the border or hob, creates a Tuscan focal point. The wall painting does not have to be large, from 20 to 30 square inches is sufficient, depending on the size of the kitchen. A curved top enhances the mural’s Tuscan appearance.
