Bring A Tuscan Flair To Your Home Office

It is easy to bring a Tuscan feel to your home office. Tuscan decorating incorporates warm colors, ornate details, metal scrollwork and rich wood to bring a feeling of nature inside. The Old World atmosphere can be brought to your home office by the furniture you choose and the accents you add to the space.



Colors that are traditionally used in Tuscan decorating include warm, rich colors such as mustard yellow, deep green, burnt orange and earth tones. Use these colors on your walls and in your accessories.


Traditional wood and leather furniture are often used in Tuscan décor. Consider using a leather desk and side chair surrounding a dark wood desk. A bookcase will provide useful storage and display space.


Richness is a key to bringing the Tuscan style to your space. Wood desk accessories, a dark wood or wrought iron waste paper basket next to the desk, and artwork in dark wood frames is a great start. Decorative accents such as maps on the wall, book ends, a globe, and interesting storage boxes placed on shelves and bookcases will enhance the look. A wrought iron chandelier will add a touch of elegance. Lamps with decorative shades will both accessorize and provide light for the space.


Carefully chosen accents and furniture pieces will lend a Tuscan feel to your home office. The Old World look will compliment any décor and is a classic style for a home office. Check out http://www.cheapchicdecor.com/ for their large selection of Tuscan accessories and furniture.
