A Tuscan Home, Relaxed and rich
Tuscan House Plans are based on the Old World style of decorating. Originating in Tuscany, the style exemplifies the traditions and setting of a picturesque Italian villa scene – rolling hills, vineyards, lavender fields, farmhouses, perhaps a crumbling stone wall, and sun-baked terra cotta tiled roofs. With such a sweeping, heart-warming setting for inspiration, the style itself involves elegance, details, and drama, but with a comfortable, sturdy, relaxed-rustic feel.
A Major Part
of the family-centered traditions of Tuscany involve large multi-generational gatherings. These gatherings were – and are today – a way of life, and the practice is certainly reflected in the Tuscan style. Massive fireplaces, over sized architectural elements, intricately detailed pieces, and large, open spaces are common patterns to this style.
In the family-focused kitchen, center islands are large, both physically and visually, and usually made out of natural materials such as wood or stone. This places importance on and serves as a constant reminder of family and cultural roots and traditions.
Tuscan House Plans are a special breed and we love working with our clients in this style. If you have any questions about how to order our house plans online, or would like to order them over the phone, don’t hesitate to contact us.
