A little bit of Tuscany

I love the blend of texture and color in a Tuscan style of home decor. The Tuscan colors of dark brown, rusty red, olive green  and deep blue are so vibrant and create such warmth and ambiance in home interiors.The beautiful color palette reminds me of Tuscan vineyards and farmhouses:
The beautiful hydrangeas create such pretty elegance inside a home:
This French-inspired wooden box from Jo-Ann make a wonderful container for my garden hydrangeas. I love the look and effect it creates:

 The beautiful hydrangea blooms in my garden make me smile:
  A sofa-table vignette,with the lovely hydrangeas as a focal point:

 The delicate beauty of the maidenhair fern is unparalleled:
I love the beautiful contrast between the misty beauty of the fern and the rough texture of this basket:

The red hue of the silk lamp shade and the dark brown candle holders create beautiful ambiance:
I hope you enjoyed taking a trip through my Tuscan-inspired table vignette. I had fun bringing a little bit of Italy to my home! Thanks for visiting me and inspiring me with your endearing thoughts and comments. Also my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to:

Love the hydrangeas. They are my favorite. I wish they would grow here in Miami, FL. I would have one of every color. Your colors are gorgeous. I have the same colors in my home.
Thanks for sharing.

Such a gorgeous flower box! I can't believe those are real flowers... I've never seen any that beautiful other than at HobLob. :) Ahhh, desert life. :/ Thank you for stopping by my page. I love your luminaries in the post below. They gave me a great idea for some more Halloween decorating.

Hi Poppy,
Your hydrangeas are so beautiful! I love them growing as well as in your basket. Your vignette is lovely. I especially like the pop of red on your lampshades. You can certainly tell that your fern is happy to be in your home. She is thriving.

Your tuscan room is gorgeous!! I too love the warm colors. You gave me an idea how to display my dried hydrangeas. I have to alter the container, but I love doing that.

Hello Poppy,
I am back from a long days of silence. I was travelling for awhile with work and recreation. It's summer, so there are so much fun with family and dear friends from Australia.

Absolutely beautiful vignettes in a beautiful home.

You've done a beautiful job on your room. The hydrangeas are lush, and I adore the ticking pillows....and the wooden box....I wonder if JoAnn's still has those. Thank you for inviting us into your home. Cherry Kay

Your sofa table vignette is just lovely. What is it about hydrangeas? They have such a vintage-y look about them, and yours have a delightful creaminess, too. Love the pillows!

Sue said...

Your flower box is so cute and your ferns and hydrangeas are very pretty! I have always had a bit of a brown thumb, so gardeners just amaze me that they can grow plants and keep them alive. I have gotten better lately- my kimberly ferns look amazing! Visiting from Bunny Jean's. ~ Sue
