Introduction to Tuscany Rustic Style

by Rong Zhang 19 Jan 2024

What is Tuscany? The original cradle of the Renaissance? A quiet space in Italy? Perhaps today, Tuscany represents a way of life. The old warm color system conveys the warm and quiet natural atmosphere, and the warm and soft tone reflects the classical and rustic atmosphere in modern life, perfectly showing the traditional aristocratic lifestyle, exquisite and noble. Being awakened by the sound of birds in the morning, walking with the family in the evening, seeing the branches turning green, smelling the fragrance of flowers and flowers, painting, making fun, simple and rich, living in a quiet and leisurely life, this is the pastoral life described by Tuscan style.

Introduction of origin

Tuscany, in central Italy, is a country of vineyards, modest stone farmhouses and medieval mansions dotted between villages. The Italian understanding of life is to create a comfortable and charming living space that has been continued for generations, and coexists in harmony with the surrounding environment, so rural nostalgia is the soul of Tuscan style, color, stone, metal is the essence of Tuscan style.

Architectural feature

Ordinary buildings in the traditional Tuscan style have square, rectangular, L-shaped or rectangular plans, bypassing open gardens and vineyards. A tiled pergola with a semi-open space is often built behind the house for wine, dining, gathering and resting. The small -size windows are often just an arched rectangular window hole covering the mesh yarn. On both sides of the window hole, there are usually a wooden -made sun -type shading window made of wooden boards. It can be completely closed when the sun is the coolest.

Essential design elements

Although some elements of the Tuscan style have been modernized, the house today retains many of the original architectural elements and decorative features of the Tuscany vintage house. Some of the key elements include: External and internal features.

External characteristics

Thick stone outer walls: limestone, sandstone, limestone and marble are usually used in the outer wall of Tuscany's house, so that the house is integrated with the natural environment. In this way, the house can integrate into the surrounding natural environment. You will often see marble as a marble on the doorway, arch, or window. Terracotta roofing and floor tiles: Terracotta is a building material that is very common in warm climates - it is relatively easy to make by baking natural terracotta. In Tuscan style houses, you'll often see terracotta roofs and floor tiles, another design element that connects it to its surroundings. Outdoor living space: Due to the warm climate in Tuscany, air circulation is a must. Many traditional Tuscan homes feature outdoor living Spaces such as terraces, porches or loggias. Decorative wrought iron elements: Romantic wrought iron gates can often be seen in Tuscan style homes. In an outdoor living space or garden, wrought iron wall hangings or decorations can add extra texture and warmth.

Internal characteristics

Stucco walls: Stucco walls are another easily available building material, traditionally made of water, sand, and lime. In addition, white whitewashed walls are ideal for warmer climates, as they keep cool air in during the day and release heat into the space at night. In Tuscan style, it is not uncommon to see hand-painted patterns on the interior walls. Textured ceilings: Vaulted or paneled ceilings with exposed beams add warmth, texture and natural elements to the interior of a Tuscan home. Traditionally, the wooden beams in the interior were refurbished from an old Tuscan farmhouse or barn. Mosaic flooring: While terracotta tiles are often the main type of flooring in Tuscan homes, glass and stone are often used to make Mosaic art on the floor. Many modern Tuscan homeowners have replaced red pottery tiles with hardwood floor to increase warmth.
