Idyllic in Italy

The Tuscan countryside must be amongst the most beautiful in the world and this home really does do justice to its beautiful setting.

Imagine a meal on this patio looking out over those rolling green hills eating delicious Italian food. What bliss!

The home is furnished in a relaxed and comfortable way, but without compromising on style.

The kitchen and dining room are simply furnished with terracotta tiles underfoot, perfectly cool in the hot summers.

Slipcovers, white linen, rustic lime-washed  beams and French doors bringing the outside in - what more could you ask for.

The main bedroom, beautifully dressed in white.

Interesting details are evident in every corner, but always kept simple.

I love this bedroom with it's pretty beds and subtle colours.

Well I hope you enjoyed this little Italian interlude and that the coming week will be kind to you.
Till next time

  8. Sharon,
    This home is perfect. I love that it looks so inviting indoors and out! The views are so peaceful and the attention to detail within each room makes it one of my favorites, now if I could only get to Tuscany. :D

  12. Definitely idyllic!! Just beautiful. Love that coat and hat rack... although hat rack doesn't seem like quite the right term for that beauty :)

  13. Just gorgeous and funnily I am showing my husband the kitchen as I type, we have been putting in some shelving and a bench (rustico plus) and I want a shelf underneath and baskets. He of course has other ideas and a friend to back him up. lol x
