Wine Themed Home Decor

Celebrate the Beauty of Tuscany with Wine Themed Home Decor
Tuscan home decor designs take their cue from a palette of warm colors found in nature—vibrant yellow hues of sunflowers and lemons, verdant green shades found in vineyards and olive groves, and earthy brown tones of moss and mountainsides.

My husband and I were married in Italy and are honorary citizens of Siena. We spent our honeymoon at a rural farmhouse in nearby San Gimignano, and have since tried to emulate the Old World feel of Fattoria Voltrona in our own home.

In Tuscan home design, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Everyday items like bowls and bakeware are functional as well as beautiful, and are often on display in open cabinets or baker's racks.

In the Tuscan home, textured walls and stone tile floors provide a backdrop for the furniture and accessories that define a personal style. A Tuscan home experience can be as simple as displaying a beautiful sunflower kitchen towel on the wall, or using a wine bottle candelabra as a centerpiece on the dinner table. The open feel of Italian living is highly desirable in modern homes, and is relatively easy to achieve with just a few beautiful pieces in your home decor.

The items shown here represent things we use in our home, and many are functional as well as beautiful. We especially love useful items that are crafted from repurposed wine barrels, wine bottles, and corks.
