A bathroom inspired by the villas of Tuscany is a warm and inviting haven. To get this down-to-earth look, start with the golds, greens and browns of the Italian landscape. Add elements inspired by the wrought-iron benches, stone fountains and greenery of Tuscan courtyards. Then personalize it with your own touch of Italy, from your grandmother's millefiori collection to your favorite Italian scents. By combining the right materials, colors and accessories, you can turn any bathroom into a restorative retreat with an enchanting Italian accent.

From iron garden gates to terra-cotta urns to travertine courtyards, Tuscan style is rich with rustic materials. Even if your bathroom isn't wall-to-wall marble, you can enjoy stone details like a travertine soap dish and lotion dispenser. Sculptural candlesticks, like the Florentine Marble Candlesticks from Lamps and Decor, add Old World style. Top them with Vance Kitira's Timber Pillar Candles from Bo Danica. The rough finish and dark cranberry red of the candles hold their own with the grandeur of the candlesticks.
