Master Bedroom Colors – This Tuscan bedroom design features an earth tone color palette inspired by the agrarian Tuscan landscape. Tuscan bedroom paint colors are often the same as those seen in other areas of the home. In the inspiration photo, we see a muted golden wall and ceiling color, which appears to have a glaze treatment to give it a time-worn look. The bedding is a neutral tan with a terracotta band. Grey accent pillows are punctuated by a touch of vibrant red to coordinate with other fabrics in the room. The wing chair sports an earthy terracotta tone, and the drapery panels and fabric cornice feature a gold background with chocolate brown and red damask pattern. Adding warmth to the room are the rich wood tones in a reddish brown mahogany stain found on the ceiling beams, and Tuscan bedroom furniture. Scrolling black wrought iron accents are seen in the hanging chandelier above, and on the utilitarian table beneath the window. The flooring is very warm and neutral, in what appears to be light grey patterned carpeting.
Add Tuscan Lighting – The inspiration room features a lovely drum style Scrolled Iron Chandelier with faux candles. This Tuscan light fixture is about the most elaborate item in the room. The open design allows even distribution of the light, and the scrolled pattern adds just the right amount of flair in juxtaposition to the straight lines of the ceiling beams, and rustic bedroom design. Toss in a few strategically placed table lamps for accent lighting in a dark wood or bronzed metallic tone to cast romantic shadows throughout the space at night.
Add Tuscan Bedroom Furniture – The star of this room is by far the beautifully carved wood paneled bed with curved top head and footboards. Select a Tuscan Bedroom Furniture Set with similar proportions and lines to recreate this look. If your ceilings are lower, or your space is smaller, stay within the same style, but in a scaled down version so as not to overcrowd the room or overpower the rest of the decor.
The Wing Chair shows off graceful curves in a coordinating terracotta upholstery fabric and wood accent trim. Add a chair with similar lines, in a wing back or wing style. The chair also features a Queen Anne leg and rolled arms and looks comfy, making it the perfect candidate for relaxing in the quiet space and gazing out the windows.
Add Tuscan Bedding – Authentic Tuscan bedding is traditionally very simple, without the fussiness that Americans often add to the bed. Italians hate dust collectors, and often opt for a simple spread that does not reach the floor and allows for ample cleaning under the bed. For a rustic look follow suit with a simple bedspread or coverlet. Want a higher end Italian palazzo design fit for a queen? Select opulent Tuscan bedding in silk or "silk-like" fabrics, with rich woven designs. This Quilted Italian Bedspread Coverlet is ideal for Tuscan bedroom design. It is simple, yet elegant, Made in Italy, and available in 24 colors to suit. Buy Now.
Add Finishing Touches with Tuscan Accessories – This room, though rustic, is neat and uncluttered. Accessories are limited to accent pillows in hues to match the bedding, and a pop of red to coordinate with the Tuscan Drapery Panels and cornice fabric. Add large and small urn style planters, a drum style garbage can for the desk area, a neutral throw for the wing chair, a miscellaneous box and dish as accent pieces, and you are done.
