Tuscan Wall Decor: A Few Ideas for Your Home


If you are looking for Tuscan wall decor or Italian art for your walls, look no further! Our Italian wall decor and artwork is authentic and sourced directly from Italy on our buying trips.   Here are a few examples...



 Etchings are artwork that I see often in Italy. You’ll find etchings everywhere from Palazzos to country farmhouses. A series of very fine lines make up the image of an etching. The lines making up the image in the artwork are made in two ways, either created with acid or by scratching into a plate. Ink is then applied to the plate, which is then pressed into paper. Look closely and you’ll see an indentation in the paper that was the size of the plate used in this process.

 Architectural Antiques- Drawings and Salvage

When I was a study abroad student in Florence, Italy many years ago, I discovered that there are lots of architects in Italy! I find architectural drawings and artwork such as these very interesting.

 Architectural salvage used as artwork can really look wonderful as well. The worn paint on this antique Tuscan door looks like a beautiful abstract painting.

 Oil Paintings

In Italy, there are many magnificent oil paintings. All of the masterpieces we read about in art class and paintings we see in museums are oil paintings. On my buying trips, I have found many wonderful vintage and antique reproductions by unknown artists and art students. Even though the paintings are a bit naiver, I appreciate these works of art because the colors are rich and reminiscent of the old world. I like the idea of these artists honing their skills and that we can appreciate their work and efforts today.

Farmhouse Tools or Implements

If you’re like me and love a Tuscan farmhouse feel, then incorporate items in your home that were used on an actual Tuscan farm. This kind of wall art is creative and interesting. When done thoughtfully it can also look very sophisticated and high end. Here are a couple of examples.

These things are just fun and I consider them Italian wall art.  Because they are truly Italian, they still feel very unique and you’ll appreciate seeing them in your home because they will remind you of Italy.
