he Tuscan design style is known for its timeless beauty and Old World charm of natural materials, of warm and inviting colors. The Tuscan style is also marked by its unique connection to the earth by incorporating the outdoors within the home. Old World kitchens—with their large cooking hearths or grottos and distressed cabinets—trace their look to pre-17th century Europe. Often painted, the raised panel cabinetry should feature elements like chalking, sand thru finishes, beadboard
and hand carved wood embellishments.
