Tuscan style kitchen colors are based on the colors found in Italy’s natural landscapes and seascapes. This design style is rich in burgundies and purples reminiscent of grapes and their wines, luscious greens of fresh olives, the sparkling blue lakes and five surrounding seas. These beautiful color palettes can bring old world charm to your kitchen.
Warm and Rich Cool Colors
The warm color pallet is a favorite choice for designers, especially the earthy tones used in Tuscan decors. Cool colors such as blues, purples and greens are often used as accent hues to create the overall color effect of a Tuscan landscape.
A long-standing color associated with Tuscan design is the rich clay-color of terra cotta tiles. Paint your kitchen walls in this traditional color to transform it into a warm and exciting workspace.
Sunset Gold or Ochre
The range of hues for the yellow family begin with deep bold golds to muted ochre. Many designers opt for a more intense yellow hue like that of a sunflower as an accent color to give the room pop. You have many choices of this warm color and are sure to find one that works in your kitchen design.
Poppy Red and Burgundy Wine
Various hues of red can add depth and warmth to your kitchen design. You may be artistic and want to paint a trellis of grape vines as a border with bunches of green, red and purple grapes. Some kitchen designs use an accent wall painted in red. Just be sure your choice blends well with the other colors you select
