Finally, a Tuscan room I love! Maybe because it is in Tuscany!
I say finally because all I see here in L.A. is over worked “Tuscan” in homes. I am not a huge fan of California style “Tuscan” decor and architecture for the most part…the not-so authentic faux finishes and scrolling iron works and big blocky wood architecture additions are usually replete in these homes…so that leaves me feeling that the so called “California-Tuscan” just doesn’t work for me.
This actual Tuscan kitchen in Tuscany does work for me. California Tuscan copy cats behold a true Italian kitchen.
There is something so romantic, rustic and raw about this open kitchen in a home in the countryside of Tuscany…
I don’t know specifically what it is about this space that draws me to it…is it the warm inviting wall color, the wood beamed ceilings, the tattered wood cabinetry, the tapestry hanging on the textured wall in the dining room, or the fact that I can literally imagine myself there cooking (which I rarely do), eating, enjoying family and friends…hmmmm…ahhhhh…Tuscan love!
What do you think of this Tuscan kitchen? If you like please forward to your American friends to show them what Tuscan is supposed to look like!
Aside: Have to dash in a bit to my morning work meeting! Oh, last night, I found all of these sparkling headbands I bought earlier this year…I think I will put one on for work…a tiara of sorts…whenever I wear one of my tiara like headbands to my very corporate job, my boss always looks at me like I am nuts…hee hee…think I will shake things up again and wear a tiara (oh I mean sparkling headband) to work. Also don’t judge me that wearing a tiara is my way of making things exciting at the office…I know…I’m sure some of you are saying…boring…dull…well…it is what it is…hee hee. Oh, I am also aware that regular readers are reading this right now and saying…”she’s like a broken record”…”haven’t I heard this tiara/headband bit before?”…hmmm…at least I am aware of my frailties! LOL!
Anyhooooo…again, Happy Tuesday!
