Our Inspiration: A Rustic Master Bedroom
Break it Down - Tuscan Bedroom Decorating

I've identified five components essential to recreating this look...let's see if you figured them out.

Tuscan Master Bedroom Colors
This Tuscan bedroom design features an earth tone color palette inspired by the agrarian Tuscan landscape. Tuscan bedroom paint colors are often the same as those seen in other areas of the home. In the inspiration photo, we see a muted golden wall and ceiling color, which appears to have a glaze treatment to give it a time-worn look.
The bedding is a neutral tan with a terracotta band. Grey accent pillows are punctuated by a touch of vibrant red to coordinate with other fabrics in the room. The wing chair sports an earthy terracotta tone, and the drapery panels and fabric cornice feature a gold background with chocolate brown and red damask pattern.
Adding warmth to the room are the rich wood tones in a reddish brown mahogany stain found on the ceiling beams, and Tuscan bedroom furniture. Scrolling black wrought iron accents are seen in the hanging chandelier above, and on the utilitarian table beneath the window. The flooring is very warm and neutral, in what appears to be light grey patterned carpeting.

Wrought Iron Accents
Scrolled iron makes an appearance in this Tuscan bedroom design. Notice the beautiful shape of the drum style chandelier above with faux candlelight. The style is elegant, yet in keeping with the simple style of the room.
The desk / table placed beneath the window features a rustic iron knot design on the X style legs. Accent lamps fall in line sporting a dark metallic finish, echoed in the curtain rod above the far window.
Warm Wood Tones
Faux wood beams are lightweight, beautiful, and easy to install. Order a sample>
One of the most endearing things about this Tuscan bedroom is the use of warm wood tones throughout the space. While the soaring wood beams steal the show, the beautiful carved headboard makes a grand statement on its own. The nightstand and dresser echo the warm wood theme in simplistic style, as well as the trim on the wing chair and the top of the desk table.
To complete the look, the window trim is stained in a matching wood tone, and if you look closely, you’ll find what appear to be wood panels across the bottom of the window (looks like sliding doors) on the far wall. Just the right amount of wood, spread around the room gives this Tuscan bedroom it’s unified, rustically comfortable charm.
Tuscan Style Fabric Designs
One of our favorite things about this room is the gold, ruby, and brown damask fabric used on the curtains and cornice on the windows. It adds just the right amount of red into this otherwise neutral palette.
Similarly, the terracotta upholstery on the wing chair adds a touch of color without competing with the draperies. The bedspread is neutral, with quilted stitching which adds texture, but allows it to remain simple in style.
Authentic Tuscan bedding is traditionally very simple, without the fussiness that Americans often add to the bed.
Tuscan Bedroom Furniture
The furniture in this Tuscan bedroom is simple, yet beautiful. The craftsmanship is apparent, with nothing too showy or ostentatious.
Graceful curves of the beautiful headboard, wing back chair, and legs on the desk table balance out the boxy rectangular shapes. The wood tones are balanced, with stain colors coordinating throughout the space.
Overall, this Tuscan bedroom design is clean, simple, and comfortable, and the bedroom furniture reflects this in perfect taste.
