Featuring an array of beautiful homes, Hidden Homes of Tuscany and Umbria is a spectacular celebration of one of the best-loved and most alluring regions of Italy.
Steeped in history, Tuscany has always exerted an irresistible hold on the romantic imagination. Its rich cultural legacy is reflected in the local interior style, which confidently borrows from other eras and places, resulting in a look that is chic, original and always easy to live with. This inspiring book is divided into four parts. Natural Charm features rustic houses, characterized by an earthy decorative palette, whose interior design is rooted in the ancient rural traditions of Tuscany. Stylish Simplicity looks at modern interpretations of Tuscan style – from a high-ceilinged barn, now a light and airy loft, to a converted village school. Classic Elegance focuses on country houses restored according to a grand decorative design, yet still warm and welcoming, while Idyllic Artistry is devoted to a more eclectic, colourful approach to Tuscan living. Combining inspiration with a wealth of practical suggestions, Hidden Homes of Tuscany and Umbria offers myriad ideas for interior design that can easily be transferred to any home.
