Homes decorated in the Tuscan decorating style are inspired by the elements of nature. Crumbling stone walls, intricate wrought iron accessories, sun-washed hillsides, rustic stone farmhouses, marble flooring and sturdy hardwood furniture are just some of the wonderful elements of this decorating style. Because almost anyone can visualize himself in such a peaceful setting, it's no wonder that Tuscan style decorating is so popular for today's homes.
An ottoman is essential for comfort. Add a large wooden or rattan tray to convert it to a coffee table. Light woods are often used for furniture pieces and wood flooring. Oak and pine are the most popular, either painted or finished with a flat, low luster varnish to protect the grain.
Furniture and accessories should look as though they're adorned with hand-carved accents and gold- or silver-leafing. Soft goods such as upholstery, pillows, and window treatments made of sensible fabrics can be adorned with trims. Tassels accent pillow corners and drapery swags, fringe is often used on the bottoms of upholstered pieces, and many patterned fabrics of different textures and weaves are used together. By simply adding a row of 6" fringe to the bottom of a plain colored sofa, you'll have a more formal look.
Typical characteristics of an eclectic style space: Calm mix of periods and styles, neutral background colors, unexpected use of materials and/or items, uniqueness in art and furnishings, a “pulling together” through pattern, shape, texture, finish or color, everything has its place but it may look cluttered, old easily mixed in with new, handmade items or items with sentimental value, celebration of contrasts. Do you long for a casual style room that is homey, warm, comfortable, and inviting? Who doesn't want to be comfortable in their own home? If you want to put together a casual style room, learn the basic elements that combine to create a truly casual room.
