Tuscany bathroom faucets are inspired by those found in the Tuscan region of Italy, world-famous for its food, wine and a laid-back, rustic style that's at once comfortable, welcoming and elegant.

Tuscan-style bathrooms often use bold colors like ochre, terracotta and soothing Mediterranean blues. Comfort and relaxed elegance prevail in these spaces, which can often feel like they belong in a vacation villa.

Soothing Blue

Warm colors like orange and red represent energy, while cool blues and greens have a soothing and calming effect, the makings of an ideal spa-style color palette. To start, choose a blue or green color you really like, and don't shy away from darker tones.

Energizing Orange

Color affects mood, so before you settle on a shade, ask yourself how you want to feel in your bathroom. Energized or relaxed? Do you want a space that is stately and formal or cozy and casual? The subdued terra-cotta orange in this bathroom is energizing but doesn't overwhelm when paired with neutral tile. Bonus: The tile itself is a great way to introduce color.

Vintage Cream

One color has the ability to alter the appearance of another. For example, beige tends to dull the look of white when the two hues are paired. Cream pops against the soft, calming hue of pale blue, an example of another effective color duo.

Why Not Red?

Go for a wow factor with pops of red against a clean white backdrop. This striking bathroom design mixes old and new to create something totally now.

Classic Neutrals

Low-contrast combos such as taupes, beiges and tans will create a casual, classic bathroom style that can be dressed up with colorful accessories. If you're not a fan of beige, choosing high-contrast color schemes such as black and white will create a more pristine, formal look in the bath, says interior designer Mark McCauley, ASID. Note: To avoid a matchy-matchy look, choose bathroom accessories in a hue dissimilar to the room's most dominant color.

Contemporary Birch

Bathroom cabinets are a great way to bring in color. The birch cabinetry in this room plays against blue walls, red accessories and natural slate tile to create a cohesive "finished" look. For variety, choose towels, decorative pieces and flooring in a shade lighter or darker than the walls.

Rich Mahogany With White and Gray

A popular color combo in newly built homes, mahogany and crisp white works wonders when paired in the bathroom. Create a neutral playing field by painting the walls a muted clay-like gray, and incorporate textures via tile, flowers and even beveled mirrors.

Solid brass and oil-rubbed bronze are great material choices for Tuscany bathroom faucets. They both have a classic, solid construction that fits well with both the traditional elegance and the relaxed feel of Tuscan-style bathrooms. The hues in brass or oil-rubbed bronze faucets will complement the traditional colors in Tuscan style bathrooms well—yellows and deep browns can work perfectly with the reds, mustards and bold blues of these often spa-like bath spaces.

In terms of style, a fairly traditional, classic approach is usually employed for Tuscan bathroom faucets. The terracotta flooring and intricate wall tiles of these bathrooms often offer enough style on their own, allowing faucet fixtures to be more understated.
