Italian style is big these days. Of course there's the sleek, modern Milano look, but when you think of home decor, think Tuscany. Tuscan tapestries can add a layer of charm that is uniquely delightful.

Making It Sunny With Tuscan Tapestries

Tuscany is on almost everyone's list of great places to go in Europe. Even if you can't get over there, you can still bring the sunshine home with Tuscan tapestries. Bright, rich earth tones predominate in these elegant pieces, making them perfect for kitchens, dining and living rooms.

A popular style of Tuscan tapestry is the Trompe L'oeil mural style. This is often devised as if you were looking out a window at a lovely view of the Italian countryside. It's a great effect in the kitchen or dining room, but can add charm to a darker space, as well.

Flowers, olives, fruit and illustration reproductions are themes that add versatility to your decorating. You can add pillows, table runners and bell pulls to match. This fills out a room and coordinates your theme throughout your home to spread the Italian sunshine just that much further.
