Style Secret: Gentle ColorsThe Tuscan palette draws upon land and sky: dusty green hills, brick-red earth, blue skies, golden sunlight. Choose shades of terra-cotta, tawny yellow, soft gray-green and faded blue. Colors should look as though they've faded gracefully in the hot sun; paint gains a pleasing patina and depth from a little chipping or cracking. Bella Tuscany: Earthy tones cloak this kitchen and add an irresistible layer of invitation. The terra-cotta flooring mirrors the hues of the ceiling brick so the whole space feels wrapped in coziness.
